Kenya Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) – Circular Economy Municipal Solid Waste Management Approach for Urban AreasView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
The purpose of this NAMA is to improve MSW management in a sustainable manner, while leading to transformational change in two distinct phases over a period of 15 years. There was insufficient evidence available to review this policy at the time of the assessment.
However, some sources suggest that the NAMA has been implemented unevenly. An article suggests that the implementation of draft waste management policy and proposed climate change mitigation actions such as ”NAMAs has lagged policy aspirations both at national level and in localities like Naivasha’’ (Soezer, Owino, & Alwala, n.d.); Ddiba et al., 2020). In contrast, evidence also suggests that some local companies appear to have successfully implemented the circular Economy Municipal Solid Waste Management model described in the NAMA (Koech, & Munene, 2020; Pennazio, 2021).
