Objectives

The overall objective of this project is to promote transition to circular economy, which also contributes to more efficient resource and waste management across Turkey. The contract will include technical assistance and capacity building activities to accomplish this objective.

Activities

Firstly, potential of Turkey on transition to circular economy in line with the EU Circular Economy Package will be assessed by a benchmark analysis including gap/need/benefits/challenges assessments. Several capacity building activities including study visits, workshops, meetings and trainings will be conducted to enable end recipient, stakeholders and target groups to get familiar with the EU Circular Economy Package and its concrete outcomes.

Secondly, a national strategy and action plan on waste and resource management in line with the EU Circular Economy Package will be developed followed by need assessment studies on adaptation to EU Plastics Strategy, Single-Use Plastics Directive and revised Directives of the EU on waste management. A framework regarding the monitoring of the implementations of transition towards circular economy model will also be developed.

Thirdly, the contract will contribute to assist national and local authorities in Turkey to improve their management capacities in the field of integrated waste management, particularly revaluation of recyclables. Separate collection of recyclable waste and economic instruments on waste management to promote circular economy will be the main topics of capacity building activities. Need assessment on improving the integrated waste management system will be conducted including revision study on recent Zero Waste Regulation.
