Clean Cities, Blue Ocean (CCBO)

Clean Cities, Blue Ocean (CCBO) is USAID’s global flagship program for combatting ocean plastics. CCBO enhances solid waste solutions and recycling systems; promotes social and behavior change for sustainable reduce, reuse, and recycle (3Rs) practices; improves governance; and forges strategic partnerships with the private sector. CCBO, led by Tetra Tech, addresses ocean plastics pollution and focuses on reducing ocean plastics directly at their source in cities and towns across Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

JSI leads strategy design and implementation oversight of activities to promote social and behavior change for sustainable reduce, reuse, and recycle (3Rs) practices, aiming to move the field forward from an information-only approach to one that enables change. JSI also leads gender inclusion, including developing new US government Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP)-funded activities. This work was led by The Manoff Group prior to its acquisition by JSI in 2022.
