Open burning cop28

Methods and tools to evaluate, assess and communicate the multi-stakeholder partnership (MSP) piloted initiatives to accelerate the elimination of open waste burning.

Date and time: December 3rd, 11-12:30pm (GST) Location: Waste and Resources Pavilion


This session, led by Engineering X, our collaboration with the Royal Academy of Engineering, will explore best practices in raising awareness with communities, local governments and national policymakers to tackle the open burning of waste, and showcase locally driven solutions.

Accelerating actions to eliminate open waste burning is captured in the Marrakech partnership Global Climate Action Sharm El Sheik Adaptation Agenda under the human settlement impact system with an adaptation outcome. Anchored in the African Environment Ministers pledge in 2022 to eliminate Open Waste Burning by 2040 through an African Ministerial for the Environment (AMCEN) - the AMCEN president launched the multi-stakeholder partnership (MSP) to eliminate open burning of waste in Africa at COP 27 co-hosted by the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLGA), Climate Champions and Engineering X.

The MSP consists of 13 institutions and demonstrates multi-level governance with city, urban and local governments in collaboration with the private sector, civil society, academia, financial institutions, and climate funders anchored in the inclusion of vulnerable communities targeting the informal sector, youth, and women. This session will showcase the initial phase of the implementation of $2 million pilot projects from the multi-stakeholder partnership to eliminate open waste burning in developing countries, prioritising Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
