The Recycle Organics Latin America and the Caribbean program officially launched at the 1st Recycle Organics Latin America and Caribbean Regional Workshop, which took place in Santiago, Chile, from March 21-23.
The Workshop continued the momentum coming out of the Global Methane Pledge, welcoming senior government officials, climate finance experts and private sector representatives from 10 countries in the LAC region to exchange knowledge, visit operational facilities in the region and learn best practices to stimulate the replication of successful waste management projects.

The Recycle Organics Latin America and the Caribbean program supports 10 countries from the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region in reducing their methane emissions from the waste sector over a four-year period. The 10 countries involved in the Program include: Belize, Grenada, Guyana, Chile, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru, St. Lucia and Uruguay.
CCAP and ImplementaSur will provide technical assistance and develop a pipeline of projects within the MSW sector, while helping countries develop national policies that transform the sector in the long term. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and the Global Methane Hub have provided funding to support these LAC countries to transition towards solid waste management best practices, which can contribute to achieving their respective Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
