In the framework of the ongoing decentralization and de-concentration policy of the Royal Government of Cambodia waste management is one of the key areas where roles and responsibilities between administrative tears of government regarding the management and finance and monitoring of collection and treatment services need to be further fine-tuned and decentralized. Recently, the Ministry of Environment and the National Committee on subnational Democratic Development Secretariat (NCDDS) have formed a team to review the institutional framework and the corresponding legal documents in the field of solid waste management which needs to be further developed through consultations with relevant stakeholders.
