REPORTS TO: Project Coordinator for USAID – CCBO Batangas City; ESD Specialist


BACKGROUND

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is implementing the No Plastics in Nature initiative - a global movement with stakeholders to stop plastic pollution by 2030. Under this initiative, WWF has been working with local government units (LGUs) through the Plastic Smart Cities (PSC) movement in updating and implementing their 10-year Solid Waste Management (SWM) plan with the goal of eliminating plastic waste leakage by 2030. The PSC project is now in 5 Philippine cities/ municipalities and 3 ports.

WWF, under the USAID Clean Cities Blue Oceans project, aims to divert solid wastes in Barangay Calicanto from ending up in the sanitary landfill, contributing to the Batangas City SWM plan. The project works on achieving 3 results including: (1) PSC action plan developed and strengthened; (2) waste diversion, segregation, and collection solutions created and piloted by youth and community groups; and (3) social enterprise model piloted and linked to markets with potential to scale.

In engaging the youth groups, as indicated in the approved project proposal, WWF- Philippines hires a consultant for the conduct of the citizen science camp wherein participants learn about environmental concepts from which they will develop a project for helping improve solid waste management system in Barangay Calicanto, Batangas City.
