News & Blog

The Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism, and Hospitality Industry assessed the current status of the circular economy in Zimbabwe’s waste sector in collaboration with The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and with the support of Sustainable Inclusive Business (SIB-K), a knowledge centre under the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA). The European Commission funded the study through the Climate Technology Centre and
Network (CTCN). The study was implemented for one year (2021 – 2022). The research was conducted using a cross-sectional design using a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches. At the household level, samples were taken. Primary and secondary data was
collected through desk reviews, key informant interviews, and questionnaires sent out to local
governments, government agencies, waste management companies, business organizations, and
agricultural societies.
