Our theory of change
Explore IWP theory of change on Community-led mitigation of negative impacts on Climate and Environment – Managing organic and non-organic waste
in Rural & Remote Communities (RRC) in Indonesia
IWP coordinators and facilitators themselves are a representation of RRCs. They were born and raised in the communities they wish to empower and support. IWP coordinators and facilitators experienced the impact of mismanaged waste on a personal level in their own communities, understand the local challenges and have the capacity to support other RRCs on implementing IWPs community-led development project on Climate and Environment.
IWP programs includes supporting local government on policy making (waste roadmap), development of local regulations and implementation related to waste management, reduction of open waste burning and pollution of fresh water sources in rural and remote regions. Our programs supports Indonesia’s National Plan of Action
Civic space is improved and upheld by empowering members of RRCs to take collective action, express, promote, pursue and defend common interests and access information and critically evaluate issues regarding climate & environment relevant to their own communities, by focussing on management of waste.
