William commented on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle of "FOOD WASTE"

Very interesting ideas that should be put to test across the globe/adapt as feasible as possible.. Thanks Dr Sukumar for the piece. Composite manure from bio-degradable waste is vital in organic farming particularly in areas where economies are developing from subsistence to commercial production. This is my current dream project for the urban and rural poor in Uganda. The biggest challenge however, for the urban poor is land. They live in makeshift structures which are rented, despite the conditions in very congested environments /slums... You can not manage. For the rural poor, they have the land but it takes a while to transform their practices as all that is generated as waste is either scattered at the back of the courtyard or neglected.. not the best way though. Here biogas would as well be an option. Managing waste sustainable is one best strategy to answer some of the welfare based SDGs... particularly those that directly affect women and children

Could I request any body on the platform who has developed an idea for waste management at the slum level to share the strategy.. Think about a slum of about 20,000 people with no/minimum social amenities so to say... Thanks so much, Dr. William Kibaalya
