Workshop on Private Sector Engagement on Integrated Waste Management – Challenges and Opportunities

About the WCC project
The implementation of the project titled “Strengthening the capacity of policymakers and
practitioners in Bhutan, Mongolia, and Nepal to reduce GHGs and SLCPs from the waste sector,
based on the circular economy concept (the WCC project) is hence expected to make the
linkages with waste and climate change and work towards achieving sustainable waste
management while exuberating climate co-benefits. The WCC project is funded by the German
Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety
(BMUB) International Climate Initiative (IKI), and the United Nations Environment Programme
International Environmental Technology Centre (UNEP IETC). The WCC is a four-year (Aug
2017 – Aug 2021) project with multiple partners involving government actors, non-governmental
organization, the private sector, and civil society working towards sustainable waste
management. In Nepal, the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration (MoFAGA)
is the government partner institution, and the Leadership for Environment and Development
(LEAD) Nepal – a nongovernmental organization is the executing partner that will oversee the
overall project management activities and report to the UNEP IETC. The overarching goal (or
outcome) of the WCC project is to capacitate key actors (policymakers and key waste sector
stakeholders) to implement enhanced legislative formworks, creating enabling conditions for the
introduction and uptake of suitable environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) in the waste
sector, while contributing to the achievement of the pledged (intended) nationally determined
commitments (I/NDCs) and towards SDGs through four work packages;
I. WP1: Policy design and development of integrated waste management strategies,
II. WP2: Technology: identification of suitable ESTs to mitigate GHGs and SLCPs
emissions from the waste sector,
III. WP3: Finance: development of bankable project proposals for the demonstration of the
ESTs, and
IV. WP4: Awareness: communication strategy and plan and awareness raising packages
