In the week 28 Oct – 1 Nov a team of four experts from the Netherlands, led by Holland Circular Hotspot, carried out a scoping study on waste management and Circular Economy in the city of Lagos, Nigeria. The team consisted of Mr. Freek van Eijk of Holland Circular Hotspot, Mr. Jeroen Nagel of the RWS State Agency Mr. Reinhardt Smit of the company Closing the Loop and Mr. Bert Keesman of MetaSus Consultancy.
The report of the study is now published. Findings show urgent need for an overall waste and circular economy system improvement, a challenging environment for business, but also a human side; the resilience, pride and vibrance of the Nigerian people.
In april 2020 an EU Circular Economy mission will take place to Nigeria. Dutch entrepreneurs active in waste management and circular economy are invited to participate. Interested? Please apply before March 14th!
