After carrying out an intensive drive for efficient garbage disposal, the civic authorities are now working on a project for a waste-free Ahmedabad. The project for preparing a roadmap for this purpose will be commissioned by the United Nations Centre for Regional Development (UNCRD). This is for the first time that a UN body has been willing to encourage the emerging agenda for a garbage-free city in Gujarat. The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) will be implementing the agenda once it is prepared by the UN body.
The roadmap will address issues as to how to make the concepts of zero-waste society and resource efficiency a political agenda for the city. The project will also analyse as to how to make the process of garbage management a people’s affair by involving the private sector, research institutions, UN and donor organizations. The focus will be on creating a system that involves sustainable waste management.
