The current WHH programme comprises: Institutional reform to create a waste management department with revenue generation; Encouraging the development microenterprises (door to door waste collection and resource recovery and recycling), interlinked with government service delivery; and related action research on low cost appropriate technologies; and awareness raising and public education on improved waste management systems.
