Benin - Developing a national organic waste management and mitigation assessment [BJ-22-001]

by CCAC - 28 July, 2023


This project responds to a request by the Ministry of Environment of Benin to deliver a national organic waste management and mitigation assessment. 


Through the proposed outputs and activities, the project should achieve the following by its completion: 

  • Benin’s government has increased capacity to account for methane from the waste sector  
  • Benin endorses the recommended measures to mitigate methane from the waste sector, particularly from organic waste 


The project should deliver at a minimum:

  • A review of the current policies, laws and programs related to organic waste management at the different levels, city, state, and country.  
  • An assessment of the organic waste management sector of Benin, including understanding methane and SLCP emissions, which would include 
    • Data collection of current practices on organic waste, including existing organic waste treatment facilities 
    • Calculation of baseline of emissions 
  • Identification of methane mitigation measures for the organic waste sector based on the assessment 
  • An organic waste management roadmap, which includes:  
    • Quantification of the potential SLCP emissions reductions by implementing the organic waste methane mitigation measures 
    • Evaluation of the costs to implement the roadmap, including recommendations of economic instruments and funding opportunities to implement the roadmap 
    • Guidance document on how to communicate the organic waste management roadmap with the public and relevant stakeholders
