Waste generation, both domestic and industrial, continues to increase world-wide in tandem with growth in consumption. In developed countries, per capita waste generation increased nearly three-fold over the last two decades, reaching a level five to six times higher than that in developing countries. With increases in populations and living standards, waste generation in developing countries is also increasing rapidly, and may double in volume in the current decade. If current trends continue, the world may see a five-fold increase in waste generation by the year 2025. A high proportion of the waste could be recycled by the urban poor generating income for themselves and protecting the environment. There is a need to develop an integrated approach where the public, private and community sectors work together to develop local solutions promoting sustainable solid waste management hence sustainable development in a typical developing country like Uganda "The Pearl of Africa". This information is therefore based on Advocacy Through Filming and Screening Uganda (AFSU) case study of solid waste management and options for a typical fast developing Uganda Major cities like others in the developing world. Kampala is the capital city of Uganda.

Vulnerable communities now can use these materials to generate income for their family basic needs through organized local groups with the help of our organisation (AFSU).
