The Waste-Econ program, through its promotion of Integrated Waste Management (IWM), supports a vibrant waste economy that provides enhanced earnings and working conditions, while promoting sustainability, waste reduction and recycling. It is a six-year collaborative program funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), between the University of Toronto and a number of government institutions, universities, quasi-NGOs, and NGOs in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. This program is helping to provide institutional strengthening essential to create local and national IWM strategies.
