  1. 1. www.ncpc.co.za NATIONAL CLEANER PRODUCTION CENTRE SOUTH AFRICA SWITCH AFRICA GREEN PROJECT Enhancing Resource Productivity and Environmental Performance
  2. 2. www.ncpc.co.za The SWITCH Africa Green Project is developed and funded by the European Union (EU) to help six African counties shift their sustainable consumption and production patterns and transit to green economies. Project implementation is led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in partnership with other UN agencies that include the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The project is coordinated by the African Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production (ARSCP). BACKGROUND 2
  3. 3. www.ncpc.co.za The participating African countries include: South Africa; Ghana; Burkina Faso; Kenya; Uganda; and Mauritius. In South Africa, the UNEP/UNOPS has partnered with the National Cleaner Production Centre, South Africa (NCPC-SA) and the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA). The NCPC-SAleads implementation, while the department provides strategic leadership and coordination. ABOUT 3
  4. 4. www.ncpc.co.za The SWITCH Africa Green Project aims to: • Support six countries to achieve sustainable development and transit to green economies through sustainable consumption patterns (SCP), while generating growth, creating decent jobs and reducing poverty. • Support green business development and eco-entrepreneurship. • Promote the use of SCP practice by bringing about: 1. MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) equipped through training in industrial symbiosis (IS) and resource efficiency and cleaner production (RECP) to seize opportunities for green business development. 2. Better informed public and private consumers. 3. Enabling conditions and policies to influencing key sectors in the six African countries. OBJECTIVES 4
  5. 5. www.ncpc.co.za • Component A: Policy Support Country’s enabling instruments: Policies, regulatory frameworks, incentive structures, tax and market-based instruments influencing priority sectors in green business development. Status: Complete • Component B: Green Business Development Provide capacity to MSMEs that enable them to start and develop resource efficiency and green business based on SCP practice through IS. This two and a half year project started in 2016 and will complete in 2018. • Component C: Networking Facility Provides project networking and communication. The network assists in distilling knowledge from project implementation for wider replication and the facilitation of policy uptake. Status: on-going PROJECT COMPONENTS 5
  6. 6. www.ncpc.co.za This component promotes SCP practices and eco-entrepreneurship through the implementation of pilot projects, such as: • Enhancing resource productivity and environmental performance of MSMEs in six African countries through the concept of industrial symbiosis. Done by NCPC • Awareness and capacity building for eco-labelling in South Africa's agriculture, integrated waste management and manufacturing sectors. Done by proudly SA • Management of sustainable energy production from integrated waste management and agro- processing systems. Done by SANEDI REEEP • Promoting SCP in the South African agricultural value chain. Done by CSIR-NRE • Embedding sustainability in South African emerging red meat sectors. Conservation SA • Collaborating to facilitate investments and a shift to a green economy. Done by SEED GREEN BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT COMPONENT 6
  7. 7. www.ncpc.co.za The NCPC-SA has been awarded a grant to implement a pilot project in South Africa titled Enhancing Resource Productivity and Environmental Performance of the MSMEs through Industrial Symbiosis (IS) and Resource Efficiency and Cleaner Production (RECP). The pilot project is managed by the UNEP through UNOPS, while technical support is provided by Industrial Symbiosis Ltd of UK and coordinated by ARSCP. • The project aims to enhance resource productivity and environmental performance by capacitating the MSMEs in IS and RECP methodologies, for implementation of the methodologies by the enterprises. ENHANCING RESOURCE PRODUCTIVITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE 7
  8. 8. www.ncpc.co.za In essence the project focuses on: • Raising awareness for policy makers on industrial symbiosis as a resource efficient tool based on the economies of waste products and impart industrial symbiosis know-how to the MSMEs. • Implementation by MSMEs of RECP and IS. • Promoting policy reforms for the benefit of the environment, climate change and the alleviation of poverty. • Increasing profits and voluntary compliance among the enterprises.
