ALLCOT and UCG establish a great partnership to build successful climate projects in SENEGAL.

Senegal’s Solid Waste Management Coordinating Unit (UCG) and ALLCOT, an international climate change project developer, have signed a one-year partnership for designing impactful climate projects and programmes in Senegal.

Senegal is a signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and as such has ratified the Paris Climate Agreement. The Solid Waste Management Coordinating Unit (UCG) is the national entity, implementing the Waste NDC of Senegal. Also, the solid waste management projects and programmes.

ALLCOT is a company with extensive knowledge and experience for the development and financing of greenhouse gas emission reduction initiatives. This includes renewable energy, landfills, forestry, waste management, etc. ALLCOT aims to make a disruptive climate approach in projects and sustainability solutions.

The climate change global context needs actions and innovations to contribute to meet the ambitions of climate commitments in all countries. Thus, financing opportunities are available to developing countries.

The UCG, in its zero waste perspective, explores innovative financing mechanisms of the sector for the benefit of the population. For this reason, the collaboration between ALLCOT and UCG allows us to respond to four essential points:

  •  Capacity building of UCG staff
  •  Co-creation of climate change projects and programs in solid waste management
  •  Finding fund for projects and programs
  •  Transactions to reduce GHG emissions through market mechanisms as defined in Article 6 of the Paris Climate Agreement.

ALLCOT & UCG, a win-win partnership for climate actions of international magnitude for an economic, social and environmental impact to benefit local communities.

ALLCOT and Klik Foundation meet in Dakar to agree on strategies in favor of sustainable development in the country

Last May 10th, ALLCOT held a meeting in Dakar together with the Klik Foundation and local authorities to further advance the collaboration between Senegal and Switzerland for the reduction of CO₂ emissions. Both countries are among the first to make use of this possibility of cooperation, enshrined in Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

The meeting was attended by Amadou Lamine Guissé, Secretary General of the Ministry of Environment of Senegal, Andrea Semadeni, Ambassador of Switzerland, and Ousmane Fall Sarr, Business Developer Advisor West Africa at ALLCOT, who presented two of the projects currently underway, on the production and use of ITMOs in the waste management and renewable energy sector.

ALLCOT contributes with national agencies in Senegal, such as UGC and ANER, for the development and implementation of a set of strategies. First, it is oriented to the sustainable management of municipal solid waste, through the implementation of composting plants. In addition, ALLCOT participates in the design of a road lighting project using solar energy obtained through solar panels.

Building on the support of international cooperation between Senegal and Switzerland, ALLCOT wants to boost Senegal’s ambition to further contribute to sustainable development and increase the participation of the public and private sectors to achieve the targets set in the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

The Foundation for Climate Protection and Carbon Offsetting (KliK) supports and finances climate protection programs that contribute to sustainable development. The foundation, which has a mission to reduce around 40 million tons of CO2 by 2030, partners with state and private organizations and relies on international and local participation. The KliK Foundation supports climate mitigation activities in Senegal and other countries that have signed a bilateral climate protection agreement with Switzerland.
