Solid Waste Management cannot be taken for granted. While in Germany most people do hardly spare a thought on the topic, Cambodia still struggles with the process of establishing the appropriate structures in order to deal with environmental, health related and economic issues associated with insufficient waste management.

In Battambang the launching event for the Development of a Statute (Deika) on Solid Waste Management will take place on Monday 13th of February. Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, NLC, Comped Ngo and the Citiy Administration of Battambang invited all major stakeholders from municipality, private sector and civil society to jointly analyze the key challenges for a more comprehensive solid waste management system and discuss the way forward to develop a deika.

As part of the decentralization process in Cambodia, one of the key concerns for the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, KAS supports the efforts of the city of Battambang in order to improve the city’s waste management capacity.
