Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan

On behalf of Integrated Environmental Technology Center (IETC), Japan of United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), NCPC developed an Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) plan for Matale Municipal Council (MMC) in Sri Lanka. ISWM is a comprehensive waste prevention, recycling, composting, and disposal program especially focusing waste management in Local Government Authorities.

In 2007, NCPC conducted necessary field studies, conducted relevant stakeholder consultations and developed an integrated solid waste management plan for Matale Municipal Council to sustainably manage all the solid waste generated within the municipal council area.

The methodology used in the project was later adopted by JICA to replicate two similar projects in other small cities.
