Maldives Learns Solid Waste Management Best Practices and High-Level Technology from Japan

Maldives, a popular tourist destination, is experiencing continued urbanization and growth momentum. Without an organized and sustainable waste management system, it could face worse environmental, public health, and economic problems.

ADB’s Greater Malé Environmental Improvement and Waste Management Project is supporting the Government of Maldives in developing an advanced climate- and disaster-resilient waste management system from collection to disposal. Through the support of ADB’s High-Level Technology Fund, Maldives is learning best solid waste management practices from Japanese experts and exploring a partnership with Japan to improve Maldives’ capacity in managing high-level technology for waste management.
