- Nationally Determined Contribution to "Reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 20% with respect to the projected Business-as-Usual Scenario (BAU) by 2030".
A sustainable handling of waste is key to improving not only health and quality of life by reducing vectors for disease transmission, but also to ensure reduced climate impact. Technologies that allow for a more circular utilisation of resources through recycling and reuse, and minimised methane emissions from waste dump sites, in effect also contribute to more healthy communities. This cross-sectorial link provides many development co-benefits. The realisation has led to innovations such as methane capturing for biogas used in devices ranging from cooking stoves to biofuel engines, and innovative waste-to-energy technologies.
