FAST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

Context

Antigua and Barbuda is amongst the largest per capita generators of waste in the world and is reliant on a single, aging landfill that has exceeded its design capacity and requires urgent action. The country aims to initiate a transition to the circular economy by working with waste industry stakeholders to repurpose waste as a valuable resource and subsequently, drive emissions out of the sector. The nation is dependent on imports of finished products that are typically shipped in generous packaging, which creates a very significant waste management challenge.

A draft Green Climate Fund Simplified Approval Process concept note Building a Circular Economy and Reducing Emissions in the Waste Sector was prepared in 2018.

CTCN Support

Assist in finalizing the concept note for submission to GCF and the preparation of a Project Preparation Facility (PPF) application which will be submitted to the GCF simultaneously with the concept note.

Expected Impact
