Extended Producer Responsibility Scheme for Packaging Waste in Egypt

(also available in Arabic)

The mission assigned to the contractor, Black Forest Solutions GmbH and Landbell AG, was to develop an EPR scheme for packaging waste in Egypt, following best practices of the European Union Member States and adapting these to the local conditions of Egypt. The aim of the assignment is to develop the institutional setup for an EPR scheme for packaging waste in Egypt under the draft waste framework law, with respect to the roles and responsibilities of both the public and private stakeholders, the required local infrastructure, and a roadmap of implementing the EPR scheme in a pilot area (a set touristic area along the Red Sea) and its expansion plan at national level.
