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.
