This NAMA aims to reduce the amount of waste landfilled under precarious conditions, facilitate a thermal use for waste fractions that cannot be recycled material-wise, and lead to a reduction of GHG emissions through the replacement of fossil fuels as well as the avoidance of methane emissions from landfills.

Activities: (2017
GIZ along with adelphi and its consortium partner Perspectives have prepared the final NAMA report. To present the key findings of this report to relevant stakeholders and to give the opportunity for feedback to be considered for the finalisation of the document, a stakeholder workshop took place on 15 June 2017 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi. Interested stakeholders who had supported and contributed to the development of the NAMA participated and shared their comments on the findings of the project which were considered very useful for the implementation of low carbon technology solutions for the waste management sector in India.
