The Plastic Upcycling Alliance (PUA) is a three-year, $900,000 activity to sustainably address plastic waste management in Timor-Leste. PUA works to address both the challenges of excessive plastic waste and the potential to develop a competitive ‘plastics circular economy’ in Timor-Leste. Mercy Corps, in partnership with USAID, is implementing the activity with leveraged engagement from private sector partners – global brewer Heineken and local civil engineering company Caltech.
