Príncipe, São Tomé and Príncipe

Local management of organic waste


TOTAL BUDGET: €100,000

ISLANDS FUND: €49,700

DURATION: January 2020-January 2021

PARTNERS: autonomous regional government of Principe, Principe Biosphere Reserve, CEIDA (Galician Environmental Education Centre), Municipality of Pontevedra (Spain)

THEME: WASTE

The island of Principe does not have a waste management system. This project aims to foster a circular economy, by processing organic waste locally and on a small scale. The Islands Fund is being used to set up a pilot system for collecting, processing and reusing organic waste in Santo Antonio, the main town on the island of Principe. Three local technicians will receive training to become Master Composters. Five collective composting centres will be set up in urban areas of Santo Antonio and 150 individual composters will be distributed around the outskirts. Purchasing a shredder will make it possible to process green waste. A training and awareness campaign must be organised for those who will receive collective and individual composters. The intention is to replicate this pilot project throughout the island and on other small islands. It is co-funded by CEIDA (Galician Environmental Education Centre) and the municipality of Pontevedra in Spain.
