Gender technical assessment of opportunities to improve implementation of plastics and waste management in a Ugandan municipality

The gender gap in Kampala in the Waste Management and Plastics Recycling sectors represents a major issue to be resolved if the country is to achieve and improve the efficiency of the Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) projects and therefore enhance the achievement of Uganda's Sustainable Development Goals. This analysis found that the most important drivers of Waste Management (WM) and Plastics Recycling (PR) sectors' problems in Kampala are exacerbated by gender inequalities. Likewise, employment and education figures underline gender disparities between women and men and the same inequality can be observed in the realms of property and in political representation.
