The purpose of the national strategy is to explore possibilities of development of current economic activity and new green activities in several areas, including organic farming and eco-tourism, sustainable transport and infrastructure, sustainable buildings and green industries, environmental services, energy efficiency and renewable energy, water conservation and water reuse and integrated waste treatment management. It includes focus areas 1 & 3 linked to the circular economy and waste management; 'cultivate efficiently in the use of natural resources, less polluting and the ocean with sustainable production' and 'waste disposal in an integrated framework in order to improve life by recovering recycled waste and reducing greenhouse gas emissions'.
This case study has been created as part of Footprints Africa's work to build a comprehensive open-source database of circular economy initiatives in Africa. Policies are extracted from Chatham House's policy mapping at https://circulareconomy.earth/
