The project

SWM² project is based on two objectives: the overall objective is to contribute to the integration of environment protection principles into policies and programmes in Myanmar, and the specific one is to strenghten the capacities of Local Authorities of Yangon City (YC) in solid waste management (SWM).

The action is focused on three main expected results (ER):

  • ER1: reinforcement of institutional and technical capacities of Local Authorities of YC
  • ER2: development of an information system for SWM to be managed by the YCDC-PCCD
  • ER3: increase of community awareness on the importance of good practices

Thus, the project activities are gathered around three components: institutional, technological and social. Each of them aims at achieving the respective result.
