Increasing people’s participation in Zero Waste Project Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad, India



Target Outcomes

This project will enhance the meaningful participation and roles of various stakeholders in the implementation of the Zero Waste Road Map of the city of Ahmedabad.

  2. Create spaces in each zone (community) as model sites having sustainable waste management systems in place
