This project aims to support:
- A review of the current policies, laws, and programs related to organic waste management of the city, state, and country as well as an inventory of the current organic waste management system
- The development of organic waste management strategy, which includes strategies for organic waste diversion based on sectors with a special focus on food waste as well as recommendations for separate collection and transportation of organic waste, including on different types of separate collection schemes, collection vehicles, frequencies, and integration with residual waste collection.
- The formulation of recommendations on:
- Targets for the separation of organic waste in the city,
- Appropriate organic waste treatment technologies and type of facilities, including recommendations on siting and scaling up existing facilities,
- The uses of organic waste treatment products based on quality and composition,
- Policy changes at the local and national level to successfully implement the organic waste management strategy, including on composting standard national requirements.
This project will also produce an estimation of the potential SLCP emissions reductions of implementing the organic waste management strategy, an evaluation of the costs to implement the strategy, and a document with recommendations on how to communicate the organic waste management strategy with the relevant stakeholders.
