News & Blog

The Ministry of Green Economy and Environment (MOGEE) through the Zambia Environmental
Management Agency (ZEMA), in collaboration with the Ministry of Technology and Science, the National Designated Entity (NDE) of the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), in partnership with the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) supported by Sustainable Inclusive Business (SIB-K), a knowledge centre under the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA) ), implemented a study to assess the current status of the circular economy in the waste sector for developing a waste stream roadmap in Zambia. The European Commission-funded study through the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) envisions supporting Zambia to transition the waste sector to adopt circularity with a focus on organic and inorganic-domestic waste. The assignment seeks to develop a national waste stream roadmap, including conceptualizing a pilot project for a more circular management system. The implementation period of the project is between 2021 and 2022.
