LOOPINMED

Closing the local waste management loop in MED areas

Project description:

The aim of the LOOPINMED project is to find out the percentage of separate collection across the Latin Arc as well as the regional strategies that are being used in order to achieve the objectives of the Circular Economy Strategy.

Goals:

  • To find out the percentage of separate collection across the Latin Arc.

  • To find out what regional strategies are being used in the pursuit of the objectives set by the Circular Economy Strategy – especially in regions that are subject to greater tourism inflows such as Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and the PACA region.

  • To identify strengths and weaknesses in the local waste management.

  • To identify good examples in Circular Economy in terms of local waste management.

  • To identify the fiscal instruments used by municipalities to achieve the objectives set by the Circular Economy Strategy.

Actions:

  • Twinning experiences between two participating institutions from each region.

  • Drafting of a report on best practices which shall in turn be based on members’ particular experiences on the subject-matter of the project. This report will serve as a basis for local administrations.

  • Drafting of a project proposal to be submitted to EU calls (MED, LIFE, ENI-CBC)

Expected results:

  • Summary of the twinning activities.

  • Summary of success stories in Circular Economy in Waste Management

  • Submission of project proposal to the ENI MED 2014-2020 call.
