Field Visit #3. Urban Poor Women Development (UPWD)

Community Based Environmental Sanitation in Sangkat Chrang Chamres II, Khan Ruesey Keo, Phnom Penh

Rubbish disposal is a serious issue in urban poor communities in Phnom Penh. According to a waste management survey in Chrang Chamres II, in north Phnom Penh, among the 168 residents surveyed, on average each household generates 2kg of solid waste per day. While more than 50% keep their waste at the collection points along the community’s main road, the remainder discard their waste in the river or burn it. To tackle this issue, the Urban Poor Women Development (UPWD) organization helped establish the Environmental and Sanitation Group, which consists of volunteers who are willing to spend their time and energy on educating and cleaning up the community.
