TULIP Consulting is excited to announce a new project with the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Trade and the Circular Economy: A Deep Dive on Ghana and Plastic Action. This project forms part of the WEF's Global Plastic Action Partnership, a platform to bring together public, private and civil society actors to address global plastic waste and pollution.
In many African countries, plastic waste pollution is becoming an ever-great threat to the environment. Currently, less than 20 percent of plastic waste in Africa is recycled. Ghana, which currently recycles only 5 percent of its plastic waste, has made a firm commitment to resolving its plastic waste industry by building a domestic recycling industry.
In this context, this project seeks to identify how trade can be harnessed to help Ghana advance its plastic waste agenda, with a specific focus on the EU-Ghana Economic Partnership Agreement and the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
