Cambodia is one of the fastest growing economies with rapid population growth in Asia. With growing population and economic activities, Cambodia now faces the new challenge of the mounting volume of waste. Between 2004 in 2017, solid waste disposal in municipal landfills has drastically increased from 318,000 tons to 1.5 million ton per annum (MoE, 2018). According to the recent UNDP study in 2018, this situation is particularly alarming in major cities, such as Phnom Penh, which produces 2,300 tons of aste on a daily basis. It is notable that more than 90 % of all waste consists of recyclable materials (e.g. organic 55 %, plastic 21 % and textile 13%) (ibid) yet a very minimal amount has been recycled under current waste management practices.
To tackle this waste problem, a new project, “building an enabling environment for sustainable development in Cambodia” was launched in January 2019 with funding support from Sweden and UNDP with the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD) as an implementing partner.
Among other objectives, this project promotes circular economy options such as 3Rs: Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle for waste management.
UNDP is seeking an International Expert on Waste Management and Circular Economy to support UNDP Cambodia, the NCSD and the National Committee of Sub-National Democratic Development Secretariat (NCDD-S) to identify and promote circular economy solutions for waste challenges in Cambodia.
