Extended Producer Responsibility Regulations in Latin America | with Vishwas Vidyaranya

Extended Producer Responsibility Regulations in Latin America

Organized on 26th August 2020

Latin America and the Caribbean generate about 541.000 tons/day of municipal solid waste and have a high per capita generation of 1 kg/inhabitant per day. About 90 % of the MSW ends in landfill sites and the recycling rates are between 1-20 % depending on the country.

Several countries in the region are making a shift towards a circular economy and EPR and SPR legislations are helping in this transition. Additionally, the informal sector plays a key role in the region and needs to be integrated into the legal framework. The panel discussion gives an insight into the latest developments on EPR in the region with case-studies from Chile, Colombia, and Brazil.
