A Baseline Survey for the RIPL project: Preventing Plastic in Nepal Rivers by Boosting the Informal Sector

31 Jan 2024

This report summarizes key findings of the initial baseline assessment of hotspots for plastic pollution in rivers in Kathmandu Metropolitan City and the kinds of plastic that are commonly found in those spots, as well as challenges commonly faced by informal recycling sector workers. The baseline survey was undertaken as part of the RIPL project, financed by the Norwegian Retailers ́ Environment Fund and the Norwegian agency for development cooperation; implemented by GRID- Arendal, the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI), the Center for Research and Sustainable Development Nepal (CREASION), Doko Recyclers and International Solid Waste Association (ISWA). The findings from this report are the result of field research, stakeholder interviews that took place in Kathmandu during the course of late 2021 and 2022 and a desktop literature review.
