🌿 Bersama Kita Bersihkan Tanah Air 🌿 Together We Clean The Nation 🌿
In 2010 the foundation for the Indonesian Waste Platform was laid in East Indonesia on Flores island. Since then our stakeholder network has grown in a nationwide and international network, connecting stakeholders from all sectors for collaboration on solutions for the waste problems on land, in freshwater bodies and the ocean. Solving the waste problems in Indonesia is complex and the responsibility of all individuals and institutions. A collective approach, stakeholder engagement, continuous communication and synergy in agendas are needed to achieve the goal of reducing 70% of Marine Plastic Waste in Indonesia by 2040.
Our scope of work
We establish solid waste management in remote regions
We are specialised in establishing waste and litter collection systems in rural and remote regions, in collaboration with communities which do not have such services in place. Our approach includes reduction of single-use plastics, advancing refilling and reusables systems and increasing collection and recycling rates. We operate a sorting center in Labuan Bajo, where prepare recyclables for recycling on Java. We work with fishermen on reduction of single-use plastic in subsistence fisheries. We support local authorities with policy development and we support communities with an exit strategy, where we hand over the solid waste management activities to the community.
We have a long trackrecord of organising inclusive capacity building events. overview 2012 – 2022 conferences | workshops | seminars | training. And check our pages on
