Participatory Waste Management Approach for Climate Change Mitigation: The Case of Battambang City

United Nations Environment Programme ; Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) (2018)

As with many other cities in Cambodia, Battambang Municipality faces huge challenges in managing its waste. In order to overcome these problems, Battambang launched a participatory waste management initiative in 2011, with technical support from the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and a local NGO and partner, the Cambodian Education and Waste Management Organization (COMPED), through strategically combining a series of projects supported by the technical cooperation and financing schemes of various development partners. The initiative broadly addressed diverse waste streams while primarily focusing on MSW.
