Waste Solutions for a Circular Economy in India    On-going

Project Lead: IKI
Duration: 01 Sep 2020 to 28 Feb 2026

Description :

Indian cities, generate ~62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) annually, which is disposed at landfills or unmanaged dumpsites causing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental problems. Moreover, it is expected that MSW will grow to 165 million tonnes by 2031 and its GHG emissions will double to 41.09 million tons of CO2eq by 2030. The NAMA Support Project (NSP) aims to initiate the low carbon transformation of the waste sector by reducing GHG emissions and providing other co-benefits by i) scaling up and de-risking investment, ii) ensuring the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (3R’s) concept of an integrated circular-economy waste management system and iii) facilitating implementation of extended producer responsibility by setting up platforms for coordinated stakeholders engagement. The NSP will mobilise public and private sector investments of more than EUR 60m and will lead to emission reductions of around 6,9 m tons of CO2eq until 2030.
