The project will improve waste management practices in the City of Kigali through reducing materials sent to landfill sites, and using circular economy approaches to valorize three waste streams: 1) municipal solid waste, 2) agro-processing waste, and 3) liquid waste. The project will identify valuable end-products and energy sources from existing waste streams as a means to create green jobs, improve access to sustainable services, and reduce GHG emissions from the three waste streams.
This project aims to catalyze private sector engagement through the identification of appropriate technologies, mobilize climate finance to meet NDC mitigation targets in the waste sector, and enable the adoption of circular economy approaches to three waste streams: 1) municipal solid waste, 2) agro-processing waste, and 3) liquid waste. Focus will be given the City of Kigali with a view to expanding the scope of work to secondary cities and other fast-growing satellite cities at a later stage through earmarked funding opportunities.
The project will be implemented by GGGI Rwanda in close collaboration with key government partners including the Ministry of Infrastructure (MININFRA), the Ministry of Environment (MoE), Water and Sanitation Corporation (WASAC), the Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA), the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA), and the City of Kigali. GGGI’s role will be to coordinate between various stakeholders including the private sector, to originate opportunities for pilot projects, and to identify and facilitate technology transfer between GGGI country offices as well as resource partner countries.
