Identification and Dissemination of Technologies and Practices for the Transition to a Circular Economy in Côte d’Ivoire

How can Côte d’Ivoire successfully transition to a circular economy?

In collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development through the Directorate of Green Economy and Responsibility of Organizations, and the CTCN through UNIDO, a study on the identification and dissemination of technologies and practices for the transition to a circular economy in Côte d’Ivoire was developed.

This study;

  • analysed the waste sector by focusing on waste management of three waste streams; – plastic, organic waste and electronic waste;
  • generated a benchmark of African best practices of circular economy in the waste sector;
  • produced a toolbox of best practices in waste management for Cote d’Ivoire;
  • designed an action plan.

The action plan contains short, medium and long-term activities, a governance structure, a costing overview and a monitoring and evaluation framework. Stakeholders from civil society, government, private sector, international partners, and the informal sector provided insights and feedback through three workshops to guide and improve the process.
