YSD, Youth for Social Development

Berhampur Municipal Corporation is 3rd largest city in Odisha. Sanitation situation particularly the waste management is decade old problem.  The major issues with regard to solid waste management are traditional methods of waste collection like manual lifting and transportation, unscientific disposal, and lack of treatment. The proposed initiative will create an enabling environment for the municipal government and the citizen of the city to understand the concept of collaborative consumption which will ultimately help citizen and communities in multiple ways to sustain their lifestyle and environment benefits. This small effort (continuing) will bring various stakeholders to spread the idea and practice of sharing community in our life style, through a survey, awareness campaign, demonstration model, IEC materials and constructive engagement with local authorities.
