About this job:

China Integrated Waste Management NAMA

In September 2017 the NAMA Facility has commissioned GIZ to implement the project “China Integrated Waste Management NAMA”. The main objective of the project is to reduce GHG emissions of China’s waste sector and induce a transformational change in the sector. Thus, increasing the attractiveness of integrated waste management and waste-to-energy systems as a financially sustainable low-carbon investment field by adding best available practices for integrated waste management in three to five pilot municipalities. The intent is to increase the capacity of sector stakeholders through suitable training approaches. Policy advice provided to the Chinese government will support a further reduction of existing market barriers currently hindering the sector’s transformation. By enabling the sector to make use of new income streams from the energy and carbon markets, as well as a matching private sector engagement in existing networks, the NAMA Support Project (NSP) will support the up-scaling of integrated waste management solutions in China.

Main partners to the project are ministries and government authorities on national and local level in China and donor countries of NAMA Facility as well as private sector institutions such as research institutes and companies.
