|Brief Narrative Description of Project:
Currently, more than 2,500 tons of municipal solid waste is generated every day in Yangon, almost all of which is landfilled at open dump sites, and local stakeholders are calling for the introduction of large-scale waste power generation facilities. On the other hand, a comprehensive waste management master plan has not been formulated in the Yangon Region, and a policy for medium- to long-term facility development has not been established. The purpose of this project is to conduct a basic study for the formulation of a master plan in the Yangon Region with the aim of improving the waste management in Yangon and making an international contribution through technology and experience in waste management in Japan.
