Context

The state of national infrastructure and facilities for storage, collection, and transportation of solid waste is inadequate. Most enterprises working in the waste management field utilize inappropriate collection technology. Often the operation of waste collection and transport technology is too expensive, so that the poor cannot pay for the service. As a result waste is accumulating on the streets and presents a potential health risk for the people.

Requested CTCN Response

  • Develop and conduct trainings for women on how to make or produce charcoal briquettes out of dry leaves, saw dust and coconut shells
