Increase Mitigation in the Maldives’s Waste Sector

Climate & Clean Air Coalition

Relevent Country: Maldives

The Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) has launched proposals to Increase mitigation in the Maldives’s waste sector.

This project responds to a request by the Maldives’ Ministry of Environment to overcome the existing data limitations in the waste sector for informed decision-making and to assess the SLCP emissions from the waste sector.

Funding Information

  • Estimated project cost: USD 70,000

Expected Outcomes

  • The government of Maldives has methodologies and standards to collect data from the waste sector that will lead to better GHG inventory from the waste sector.
  • The government of Maldives has local GHG emissions factors from the waste sector that would improve the GHG emissions for future reporting under the UNFCCC on Maldives’ NDC implementation.
  • The government of Maldives has improved data to understand the waste sector SLCP emissions and to implement the recommended mitigation measures


The project should deliver at a minimum:

  • Development of data collection methodologies and standards.
  • Development of emission factors in the local context regarding waste GHG emissions in the Maldives.
  • SLCP emission analysis for the waste sector, with a specific interest in island communities’ waste management to inform tailored mitigation measures, including assessment of methane emissions from waste treatment and disposal facilities in the Maldives
