Valuing Waste, Transforming Cities

image of Valuing Waste, Transforming Cities
‘Valuing Waste, Transforming Cities’ provides guidance, lessons and recommendations on how to accomplish the paradigm shift from viewing waste as a problem to a valuable resource. It explores a low-cost, low-technology, community-based and decentralized waste-to-resource model called the ‘integrated resource recovery centre’. The publication articulates key lessons learned by ESCAP and its partners in establishing integrated resource recovery centres across cities in Asia and the Pacific since 2009. These lessons are grouped around four important areas for waste-to-resource initiatives: (i) partnerships; (ii) awareness raising and behaviour change; (iii) facilities management and operational performance; and (iv) replication and scaling up.

Battambang is the capital of Battambang Province in the north-west of Cambodia. It is a commercial hub and popular tourist destination. The city faces a range of challenges related to improper waste management, flooding and pollution. At the same time, population growth, rising per capita income and changes in consumption habits are increasing the amount of waste generated. There is limited waste management capacity locally and limited environmental awareness.
