Waste Summit 2019

Smart waste business models and innovations for a clean Cambodia!
If you’re buying a meal in Cambodia to takeaway you can expect to get a plastic box with food in it, a plastic set of cutleries all packed up in a plastic bag. Your drink is going to be in a plastic cup with a plastic straw which is wrapped in plastic. But that’s still not it, the plastic cup will be put in another small plastic bag for you to hold. So, it seems quite logical, that an average Cambodian household uses 12 plastic bags a day, doesn’t it? Almost half of them will be burnt later and the rest ends up in the sea. With one of the fastest growing economy and a growing consumer market, Cambodia is generating significant amounts of waste. Phnom Penh alone already produces 3000 tons of garbage per day and the issue of waste will be more important every day. The landfills are being filled up more and more and manmade waste mountains will be the norm. But as technologies are getting more and more advanced, many start-ups are coming up with new innovative ideas to counteract.

Cambodia’s Energy Transition

by Peter Hefele

Presentation of a Research Study
Rapid economic development, a young and fast-growing population, severe impacts of climate change and the aim of providing stable and affordable energy and consumption in a sustainable way: These challenges lay at the heart of any discussions on sustainable development in South East Asia. Cambodia, still one of the poorest countries in ASEAN, is a good example in this respect.
