About SWITCH-Asia Project

The project will pioneer an innovative public-private partnership (PPP) between Ilam Municipality and the private sector that fuels a commercially driven cycle of solid waste management.

The PPP for 4Gs model integrates four dimensions of sustainable solid waste management: green Small and medium enterprises (SMEs), green city, green agricultural products and green employment generation. SMEs will create a streamlined waste management system for degradable and non-degradable waste that incorporates collection, recycling, and the management of a new plant that generates compost for tea and vegetable cultivation.
