Aviral takes a multi-layered approach and is embedded in the broader plastic waste management ecosystem. It collaborates closely with municipalities, the private sector, informal waste workers, schools and local NGOs. This pilot concept is based on four key components:
Capacity enhancement: Improve municipal capacities and increase knowledge to develop a better strategic approach towards plastic waste management.
Value chain: Improve the infrastructure along the entire value chain while enhancing technical resources with a specific focus on waste segregation.
Innovation: Support local enterprises and start-ups to develop state-of-the-art solutions to manage litter and foster recycling.
Engagement and awareness: Change the behavior of citizens and visitors towards practicing sustainable plastic waste management through awareness campaigns and clean-ups.
