And developing strategic partnerships both nationally and internationally

Syctom is called on for its expertise to support cities and regions as they implement household waste treatment solutions, paving the way towards a genuine circular economy. This involves developing strategic partnerships both nationally and internationally. Internationally, the main focus is on establishing close ties with a number of strategic local authorities through multiyear agreements.

Sycrom’s priority geographical scope for implementation is as follows: priority countries for French cooperation (CICID/MEAE list), candidates for EU membership, and countries supported since 2015 in which there are links to a local authority or NGO operator (Cameroon, Congo, Vietnam, Philippines, and Kazakhstan).

Projects that are potentially of interest in countries with historical ties to France but do not fall within this scope may be supported by Syctom subject to a favourable opinion by its Management Committee.
