Congratulations, your proposal has been named a finalist in the Climate CoLab Waste management contest. You have until July 20th to edit your proposal. The Judges’ suggest that you focus your edits in the areas listed below. The parts of this proposal that deal with the textiles recycling are quite interesting and could be very useful for local communities in Cameroon. There is, however, no information provided on the quantities of post-producer and post-consumer textiles that might be available or their properties. The Judges recommend that the author not try to do everything related to waste management in a single program (e.g., the "Waste Train") but, rather, to focus on local textiles recycling. The proposal seemed to suggest that there is a great deal of waste textiles from production in the region where the initiative is targeted. It would be very helpful to hear more details: How much textile waste is there? What does it consist of? What can be done with it? It is also recommended that the authors provide a more detailed implementation and financial plan, including specific potential international/non-governmental organization (NGO) partners.
