How we work
WasteAid works in lower- and middle-income countries to implement waste management and recycling programmes that reduce climate emissions, build a circular economy and create livelihood opportunities for vulnerable communities.
We do this by:
- Partnering with public, private and community-based organisations in countries where poor waste management is harming the environment, economy and society.
- Cooperating with businesses and governments to help address the global waste crisis.
- Creating networks of stakeholders in the waste space to promote best practice, share knowledge and training and to actively support green entrepreneurship focused on addressing the waste crisis.
Collective Strength: We are collaborative and work in a collegiate spirit with a set of diverse partners and funders, guided by principles of partnership.
Knowledge Sharing: We believe in the power of appropriate technology transfer, training and skills development to create long-term sustainable livelihoods and an environment free of pollution from waste.
Demonstrated Impact: We strive for programme excellence, demonstrated impact and being transparent about our use of resources.
Strong Communities: We are inclusive in our approach, and seek to empower communities in lower-income countries to innovate and manage their own waste in a safe and sustainable way.
