The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), through its innovation laboratory, IDB Lab, and in partnership with the Global Environment Facility (GEF)1 seeks to support innovative solutions that contribute to the sound management of hazardous Chemicals and Waste (C&W) to protect human health and the environment, and address climate vulnerability in the Caribbean region.
THE PROPOSED SOLUTIONS MUST:
Be innovative in nature and present a business model that has not been implemented before in the country or that adds an innovation component to an existing model.
Focus on reducing environmental pollution and climate vulnerability, thus, contributing to at least one of the following indicators:
reduction, disposal/destruction, phase out, elimination and avoidance of chemicals of global concern and their waste in the environment and in processes, materials and products (metric tons of toxic chemicals reduced)
reduction, avoidance of emissions of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) to air from point and non-point sources
reduction of marine litter.
Promote the social and economic inclusion of poor and vulnerable population; and
Contemplate a path for scalability or replication, as well as financial sustainability.
South Asia is the third largest contributor to global plastic waste. It generates 334 million metric tons of solid waste every year.Nearly 70-80% of this waste ends up in the ocean 12% is plastic. On current trends, if no action is taken, the amount of mismanaged waste (including plastic) across South Asia is projected to double to 661 million tons by 2050, adversely affecting the region’s ocean ecosystems, livelihoods, human health, and sustainable development more broadly. COVID-19 has further exacerbated plastic pollution, with increased demand for single-use plastic and pressure on solid waste management systems.
