Resource Recovery and Safe Reuse (RRR) offers excellent business opportunities for a wide range of Ugandan industries and enterprises through the up-cycling of treated liquid and solid waste streams such as municipal solid waste, market waste, faecal sludge, agro-industrial waste, animal waste and wastewater for the recovery of nutrients, energy and water.
To support the translation of business ideas in RRR into actual business cewas, in cooperation with Makerere University Business School (MUBS) and Makerere University College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology (CEDAT), offers a series of advanced business development activities in sustainable sanitation, water and resource management. The business development activities are conducted in Uganda as part of the RRR-Project Phase II. RRR-II is implemented by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) and the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) Reform of the Urban Water and Sanitation Sector (RUWASS) Programme and co-funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
RRR-II business development activities consist of:
- Business Model Development Ateliers that introduce and promote a business model thinking process, which facilitates the designing of business models in sanitation, water and resource management. The Ateliers are entry points to the Smart Start-Up Programmes.
- Smart Start-Up Programmes are ideal for entrepreneurs who wish to acquire necessary skills and get training in bringing sanitation, water and resource management business models to life. Smart Start-Up participants are eligible to participate in a Business Ideas Competition for advanced business development coaching.
- Business Ideas Competition winners will secure free support in setting up their RRR business in close collaboration with MUBS, CEDAT, KCCA and GIZ.
- One‐on‐one coaching from business development experts in sanitation, water and resource management.
