In August 2019, the Clean Cities, Blue Ocean (CCBO) Program was launched to respond to the global crisis of ocean plastic pollution by targeting plastics directly at the source in cities and towns, specifically in rapidly urbanizing areas throughout low- and middle-income countries.
CCBO has just released two Requests for Applications, seeking grantee partners to build local capacity of communities by implementing SWM social behavior change, optimizing community-based SWM infrastructure, and exploring recyclable markets in Ambon and Makassar, Indonesia. Review the Request for Applications to learn more about the opportunity and how to apply. Applications are due on 12 January 2022.

The selected grantee will work with CCBO to develop feasible, sustainable, and scalable models that, when appropriate, can be implemented in partnership with the local government, multi-national, national, or local corporations.
