Too good to waste: Initiative to mitigate methane emissions from waste in LAC
The main objective of this initiative, "Too good to waste," is to assist IDB's borrowing member countries in accelerating the implementation of solid waste management (SWM) projects to mitigate methane emissions, therefore contributing to the goal established by the Global Methane Pledge (GMP) of mitigating at least 30 percent of methane emissions by 2030. The initiative "Too good to waste" seeks to achieve this objective by aligning with the GMP waste pathway in financing: (i) methodologies and technology pilots for improving measurement and traceability; (ii) bankable projects, feasibility studies, and business plans to scale subnational actions while also mobilizing financial resources; (iii) knowledge generation and dissemination, access to information, and community engagement. A key aspect is evidencing the link between transitioning into a circular economy in waste management and mitigating climate change impacts. Actions will be prioritized for countries with the highest methane emissions generated in the SWM sector, resulting in operational and sustainable projects in the region.
