Waste Management is among a few frontier issues which UNDP has been working on. There have been ongoing study and experiments with both government and non-government partners to find new solutions or approaches to address the issues. UNDP co-created with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Department of Environment, a guideline to organize “Plastic-free meetings and offices”. UNDP conducted a study on open burning in Vientiane Capital, we learnt that one of the reasons people do not segregate waste is that they believe that the waste segregated will be mixed in the landfill eventually. Therefore, UNDP is keen to conduct an experimentation to learn if the community see value from managing their organic and recycle waste if they get benefits from it.

Another objective is to test how active people will be engaging in the community waste management if there are incentives. The first phase of the experimentation will be conducted with the community living in Hatsadi Village, Chanthabouly District, Vientiane Capital, Lao PDR.
