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