Study and Pilots for African Countries Underway

A study and pilot to establish if a digital waste management solution could improve waste collection and recycling in Southern Africa, starting with Angola and Mozambique, is underway by Circular Action.

The five-month-long study builds on Circular Action’s experience of waste management in developing countries and its project using the KOLEKT waste management app in Brazil, Vietnam, Mexico and Mozambique. This African study is funded by the European Union Africa RISE (Reform for Investment and Sustainable Economies) program, and involves National Waste Agency [NWA] Angola and AMOR Mozambique, where the study and pilot project are being carried out.
