GHG EMISSIONS IN INTERMEDIATE CITIES OF BOLIVIA

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This Carbon Footprint Measurement project of waste and wastewater sectors and THE establishment of mitigation measures has been run by HELVETAS and is being implemented by Servicios Ambientales S.A. since 2015 in 19 intermediate cities of three departments in Bolivia: Chichas (Potosi), Chaco (Tarija) and Valle Alto (Cochabamba). Its objectives are:
- Measure the Carbon Footprint of the sectors of waste and wastewater for a base year, in 19 intermediate cities, distributed in 3 regions of Bolivia
- Establish a plausible range for defining targets for reducing GHG emissions in the relevant sectors of the population centers and the Municipal Governments, through scenario modeling
- Train project staff, local governments, and others to define, in measuring and monitoring Carbon Footprint of the relevant sectors in the cities.
