CCAP Expanding Waste Program Through Deepening Partnership with CCAC
Building on its experience developing Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions for the waste sector in Chile, Colombia and Peru, CCAP is deepening its partnership with the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s (CCAC) Municipal Solid Waste Initiative (MSWI) and expanding the impact of its waste program to new countries and cities through several activities described below.
Together with CCAC, CCAP is launching the first Latin American Regional Waste Network, comprised of cities focused on municipal solid waste (MSW) management and reducing short lived climate pollutants like methane and black carbon. The network will provide a forum where municipalities from across Latin America can share best practices and lessons learned in MSW management, discuss shared challenges and implement solutions, particularly looking at those actions that can reduce emissions in the near term. The network will be launched during the 2017 CCAC Municipal Solid Waste Workshop, which CCAP is organizing on April 24-25, 2017, in Santiago, Chile.
