Zimbabwe Sunshine Group was founded in 2007 by a group of youth from diverse backgrounds who saw the need to make change and saw an opportunity to make a difference to the environmental challenges that were facing Zimbabwe at the time. In 2012, the board was restructured to reflect the current membership and operations of the organization. The founding members are at the helm of the organization as the visionaries for the establishment of ZSG.

There is an advisory board that helps to steer the organization in the correct strategic direction. After the advisory board there is the Executive Board of Directors which is the governance structure of the organization and it ensures that the organization adheres to its policies and procedures and safeguard the interests of the funding partners by making sure the secretariat is accountable at all times. This boards convenes every quarter of the ZSG financial year where they get updates on all major developments taking place for the period. The executive secretariat forms the day-to-day management party of the organization that keeps activities running throughout the year. This secretariat is comprised mainly of young people who are starting careers in local governance, social work, or environmental work and others who are environmental hobbyists.

Role
The Project Refence Committee forms a very important part of the project. ZSG understands the importance of stakeholder consultations in a project of this nature. In order to influence changes, it is important for key role players of the industry to be involved at the level of consultation. This will reduce the risk many projects suffer were key stakeholders reject the proposed policy adjustments at the end of the project. The committee will play a key role in bringing the interest of various constituencies to the table and facilitate stakeholder buy-in and the social compact required to influence policy adjustments.

e) Describe previous experience relevant to the proposed project, including activities related to global environmental issues; or experience with projects that focus on sustainable development at community level.
? 2019, Zimbabwe Sunshine Group consulted to Medecins Sans Frontiers in Zimbabwe to develop and establish a community waste transfer station in Mbare, one of the most densely populated areas in Zimbabwe. The project started from a point of conducting a baseline survey that informed the type of intervention approach needed in the community. The project ran up to a year and a half, with ZSG doing work in delivering trainings to the beneficiaries as well as assisting with setting up a Local Reference Committee that would take over after the project exit of ZSG.
? In 2021, ZSG worked with TNO and the Ministry of Environment, Climate, Tourism and Hospitality Industries to conduct a survey informing
? Zimbabwe Sunshine Group was instrumental in a recent Green Solutions Rapid Assessment that sought to inform appropriate interventions needed to develop Safe markets in 5 different districts in Zimbabwe. Recommendations made in the assessment report have been incorporated into the Safe markets Program under UNDP.
? Through practice knowledge, the organization developed a LTBS (Let The Bin Speak) Toolkit in 2016 which is a master guide for establishing sustainable waste management operations at community level or source based initiatives. This was necessitated by the realization that the most essential sustainability elements in waste management projects are the adaptability and applicability of systems at local level implementation. The toolkit helps develop projects that strike a balance between planet (environmental), people (social) and profit (economical) sustainability pillars. This is driven by the belief that sustainability should be mainstreamed in all projects of the organization and community development.

? The organization has implemented Zero Waste To Landfills model for institutions at the Harare Showgrounds, the Zero waste to Landfills model for communities in Mbare, Mabvuku and Budiriro and zero waste to Landfills for schools at over 20 schools in Harare.
o (local level includes institutions, schools, and community. i.e waste generation source)

? ZSG has established over 15 demonstration sites across Zimbabwe because that is our main lobbying and advocacy strategy - influencing policy change through impact demonstration. When the organization established its first Zero Waste Landfilling Facliity at the Harare Showgrounds many partners did not fully appreciate the sustainability and effectiveness of the model but through demonstration of its impact over 5 years, the site has become a reference point for the consultants who developed the Low Emissions Development Strategy for waste under the Energy sector. More recently, ZSG was a part of the development of projected activities under the Environmental and natural resources management portfolio of the national Development Strategy 1. The Nationally Determined Contributions document submitted September 2021 to the UNFCCC highlighted ZSG as key stakeholders on data provision and implementation of national initiatives under the waste sector.
? Zimbabwe Sunshine Group, through its strategic partnership with the Zimbabwe Agricultural Society (ZAS), implemented Zero Waste To Landfills program for the past 6 years at the Harare Show Grounds. Through our partnership with the Zimbabwe Agricultural Society, we have had the ability to reach out to many Zimbabweans concerning the need to engage actively on programs to reduce illegally-dumped waste, promoting recycling to many other public, civic and private sector players. We are able influence zero plastic packaging campaigns during all agricultural shows in the country, starting with Harare.

PART 2: PROJECT PROPOSAL

SECTION A: PROJECT FRAMEWORK

1. Project Summary
Please provide a brief summary of the project in one paragraph, including rationale and context, project objective and key expected results, include the target site and community(ies) involved.

The Zimbabwe Sunshine Group seeks to implement a project that complements existing work that has been executed on the concept of zero waste to landfills program, which uses waste recovery at source and waste diversion from unregulated disposal sites. In this project the work to be done aims to establish and enforce a zero single use plastic roadmap and promote implementation of sustainable integrated solid waste management in Harare and Gwanda. The objectives include undertaking activities to establish the state of the envrironment in waste, promoting the uptake of Integrated Solid Waste Management systems, bringing an end to the widespread acceptance of single-use plastics and promote alternative and recyclable or bio-plastic bags and other packaging consumables. The project will include demonstration sites or showcasing models of best-practice on waste management in 3 locations in Harare and Gwanda. However, the campaign for awareness and advocacy on elimination of single-use plastic will come to all the different provinces of the country through the existing partnerships with Provincial Agricultural Shows (these platforms bring all the different communities together in one place for a week yearly and ZSG can influence zero single use plastic campaigns and promotions during the events.) The main model will be implemented in Harare at the ZSG Zero Landfilling Waste Management site situated at the Harare Show Grounds. This strategy is influenced by the case study of the ban of Kaylites in Zimbabwe. The ban on kaylites was set in motion by ZSG who organized biggest clean-up in Harare in partnership with the Office of the President and Cabinet and the Medical Expo coordinators . After inviting the Minister of Environment and upon seeing the state of roads and street corners littered by the kaylites, the ban was immediately announced and ZSG was requested to provide a recovery strategy pending the ban coming into effect. Impact demonstration at strategic level is key to policy adjustment and ZSG aims to use this strategy to set change in motion.

Zimbabwe Sunshine Group understands the essence of the National Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan as it is the primary reference in all our work in waste management therefore our solutions are comprehensive with a view to developing communities on the same path as the government. Currently ZSG has provided solutions in the form of Waste Transfer Stations, a model that has been very late in its recognition by authorities and communities, but which is highly effective in bringing both behavioral and systems change in as much as community waste management is concerned. ZSG seeks to further develop the existing solutions and interlink waste activities in a manner that will promote the circular economy whilst assisting local authorities to gradually move away from linear models of waste management. The organisation has already started conversations and actions towards building the circular economy through the annual Africa Green Waste and Energy Expo and Conference and this conversation will definitely continue on this platform to bring a verifiable and significant result in the implementation of the GEF-SGP supported project.

Single-use plastics are a nightmare, especially in urban areas where the sole strategy to discourage the unsustainable distribution of single use plastics was bringing a price tag on the undesirables. However, price alone has proven not good enough a strategy to discourage consumers from using the bags once and discard them as waste. As prices of commodities continue to rise, so do the prices of plastics, but evidence from the retailing sector shows that there is no price for plastic that can be put in place that make shoppers feel the pinch in their wallets and discourage them from use. The initiative on this proposal is to work with producers, retailers and traders and communities through existing provincial platforms and build partnerships to usher in alternatives that will serve the same purpose as single use plastics whilst influencing the movement towards ban of single use of plastic.

2. Project Justification and Baseline

Problem Analysis:

State the
Problem/Issue or Challenge Whilst it is generally accepted that solid waste management is a challenge in Zimbabwe, it is also acknowledged that it is a challenge that keeps growing. Illegal dumpsites have become a challenge to communities that does not have an end in sight and that needs holistic and sustainable solutions. Unsustainable production and distribution of Single-use plastic in the country is increasing the amount of plastic that needs to be recovered from the environment. The single use plastic has very few recyclers who need it and does not have a good recycling business case for waste recovery organizations to collect it, which cause the plastic to end up at landfills and in our water bodies. The recovery and recycling of single use plastics require sizeable subsidies and in the current economic environment there is hardly any support for such activities. Due to this, the single use plastic is one of the major contributors of the huge deposits of plastic in the oceans that is threatening the marine biodiversity.
What are the causes of the problem/issue or challenge? Direct Causes Indirect Causes
1. Linear waste management models used by local authorities
2. Lack of infrastructure in waste management and lack of resources in local authorities to provide waste collection services.
3. The misuse of the money charged for the purchase of single use plastics bags (the money is supposed to be channeled towards subsidies for recovery and recycling initiatives).
4. Unregulated production of single-use plastic.
5. The ease of access to single-use plastic by business owners coupled with the low price
6. Lack of policies to regulate the use of single use plastic
7. Lack of knowledge on the impacts of single use plastics and the benefits of alternatives. 1. Lack of public education on the negative effects of improper waste management
2. Absence of a cheaper alternatives to single use plastics.
3. The absence of a post packaging recovery plan of single use plastics (no one is taking responsibility for their waste).
4. Lack of public education on the dangers of single use plastics
5. The profit appetite of business community

(Increase the size of the table if you need more space)


The proposed project aligns with the SGP Country Programme Strategy as a model for establishing intersectional solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges. The project builds on support that has been granted by other development partners and promotes the implementation and increase of collaborations in provision of community solutions. The Zimbabwe Sunshine Group has been implementing projects on Zero Waste To Landfills as the master program with other focus areas being on climate change and livelihood support. The program was identified and endorsed by development partners this project is anchored on the gradual and incremental change concept, this method of solution-delivery being important in establishing long-term sustainable development.

Zimbabwe Sunshine Group develops programs that link directly to work already being done in communities to provide value chains that are comprehensive and holistic. ZSG’s development of waste data for the Low Emissions Development Strategy and Nationally Determined Contributions have ensured that the organisation contributes to national climate action roadmap development. In the NDS1, ZSG is an implementation partner to the government and all activities that are done by the organisation are reported to feed into the national matrix. With the promotion and adoption of the circular economy being the next step to eradicating waste management challenges, ZSG is strategically positioned, as a partner to the National Development Strategy 1, to provide feedback data and recommendations based on practice and implementation results. The organisation has been a consultant on development of waste solutions to the private sector and donor community and thus has a network of organsations that will support the project to reach the expected outcomes in terms of outreach capacities.
