Solid Waste Management in Nepal: Current Status and Policy Recommendations


Managing solid waste is one of the major challenges in urbanization. A survey conducted in all 58 municipalities of Nepal in 2012 found that average manuicipal solid waste generation was 317 grams per capita per day. This translates into 1,435 tons per day or 524,000 tons per year of municipal solid waste generation in Nepal. Many of these technically and financially constrained municipalities are still practicing rodadside waste pickup from open piles and open dumping, creating major health risks. The report identifies eight key policy recommendations: (i) development of policy, strategy, and guidelines; (ii) promotion of reduce, reuse and recycle (3R); (iii) strengthening the capacity of local bodies; (iv) public participation and consultation; (v) cost recovery; (vi)improvement toward integrated management; (vii) public-private partnership; and (viii) data management, updating, and dissemination.
