Objective:

The NAMA will support the Colombian government in transforming the solid waste sector by overcoming various existing policy, financial, market and social barriers. The cornerstones of the NAMA are regulatory changes, the promotion of alternative waste treatment technologies, creation of appropriate financial mechanisms, and the integration of informal recyclers into the formal sector.

Activities:

  • Production of fuels from waste, recyclable materials and compost
  • Potential implementation of landfill gas-to-energy programs on active landfills that currently collect and flare the gas
  • Separation of organic and recyclable materials

Another important element of the solid waste NAMA is the creation of a NAMA Equity Fund, henceforth known as the “Fund”, financed through public resources of Colombia and climate finance contributions from donor countries up to $40 Mn. The Fund will contribute equity capital to the MBT facilities that will be constructed in various cities. The funds are revolving.

Impact and MRV

pChart

Cumulative GHG reductions: 7.5 MtCO2e
Mitigative capacity:

The above activites will assume that 50% of waste from all cities in Colombia will be diverted away from landfills to MBT facilities, which will lead to a significant reduction of GHG emissions from the sector. Diverting 50% of the waste would mean that over time, only half of the landfill emissions would be generated."The above activites will assume that 50% of waste from all cities in Colombia will be diverted away from landfills to MBT facilities, which will lead to a significant reduction of GHG emissions from the sector.
