Waste Concern is a non-profit organization established in 1995 that has had major successes in reducing emissions in several cities around Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Vietnam by composting solid waste instead of burning or flaring, and selling it to fertilizer companies. So far, Waste Concern’s model of managing waste has reduced more than 18,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year in Bangladesh and generated 414 new jobs for the urban poor. It is helping to reduce the 52% of generated solid waste that remains uncollected in Dhaka.
