The Afri-Plastics Challenge is seeking proposals for Tackling marine plastics in Sub-Saharan Africa – The fight against marine plastic waste in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The Challenge aims to reduce marine plastics in Sub-Saharan African countries by developing and scaling innovative solutions to plastic mismanagement. It involves a public competition that will reward the best solutions to addressing marine plastic litter in developing countries in a way that promotes gender equality and empowerment of women and girls.
The Challenge will help communities throughout Sub-Saharan Africa to prevent plastic waste from entering the marine environment by finding ways to minimize reliance on plastic, new ways of managing plastic waste, and/or new uses for plastic that has been discarded.
Nesta Challenges, in partnership with the Government of Canada, is seeking new innovative solutions to help stop plastic pollution across sub-Saharan Africa. They are launching the CA$14.5 million Afri-Plastics Challenge.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 15-Sep-21.
