Project Approach

UPM has adopted Integrated Participatory Approach towards innovative solutions for this project. Success in identifying appropriate innovative integrated environmental and social sound eco- sanitation & waste management solutions and systems change depends on buy-in the community and all relevant stakeholders, and their willingness to adopt technical innovations based on informed choices. This requires long-term engagement with the community and all relevant stakeholders through an inclusive, participatory integrated awareness raising and education strategy.

In this project, UPM employs an integrated inclusive approach linking technical and social aspects of innovation through working with all relevant stakeholders to ensure informed choices and to guarantee local ownership and long-term sustainability of the offered innovations.
