CREATING VALUE CHAINS
To sustain a long-lasting impact,
CLOCC works closely with local stakeholders
Local Authorities / Municipal Solid Waste System
Private Sector / Unorganized Waste Pickers
The stakeholders are commonly local authorities, who are responsible for the municipal solid waste system, and the private sector. In many developing countries these predominantly consist of non-organised waste pickers working in the informal sector. The improvement of waste management systems must integrate the informal sector. Another important stakeholder is local community leaders. We connect community leaders with local authorities to develop inclusive waste management systems with broad ownership.
Blended Learning Approach
We utilise a blended learning approach, which consists of a mix of in-person training, workshops, field trips and site visits, digital lectures, video material and e-learning. This way, we build capacity and skills on the local level, which is key to achieving sustainable improved waste management.
Consequently we can also reduce time, costs and the environmental footprint related to travel, while still drawing on the benefits of in-person learning and interactions.
Aim for 100% collection (or home treatment)
Promote separation at source
Create integrated and participatory Waste Management Plans
Collect reliable data
Engage and work with all relevant stakeholders
Reduce waste generation
Ensure that biodegradables don’t go to landfills
Recycle by increasing material recovery
Make management of the residual stream affordable and controlled
Ensure appropriate governance structures on national and regional levels
Finance through structural revenue sources
Monitor progress, then make adjustments
Our Global Pool of
Trainers and Mentors
The collective expertise of our trainers covers all the most fundamental aspects of integrated sustainable waste management. Through their skills and knowledge, we can contribute to increase the capacity needed to significantly reduce marine littering and plastic pollution - and achieve clean oceans.
The CLOCC project will assign mentors to follow up and support throughout each waste management planning process, from the pool of trainers.
