Waste Pickers and Carbon Finance: Issues to ConsiderThis Technical Brief clarifies the requirements for carbon finance mechanisms to provide an assessment of whether informal waste picker membership-based organizations (MBOs) in the global South can reasonably meet these requirements and the potential investments needed to successfully secure carbon financing.


This document presents information related to the feasibility of these MBOs accessing carbon finance through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the voluntary carbon market and the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
