Wakatobi, Indonesia


Wakatobi At A Glance

For Wakatobi, a coastal town on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi, the Thai best practice from Muangklang proved relevant: ecologically friendly waste management, concentrating on how to involve the whole community in ensuring a cleaner and more liveable environment. Methods used include the employment of Effective Micro-organism (EM) in the overall waste management process, a simple and inexpensive way of purifying wastewater before it enters a river, as well as the installation of grease traps in homes and garbage banks at local schools. The town is doing well in its implementation: every Saturday all schools, government offices and communities allocate some time for cleaning up the environment in their neighbourhood. During many community events, information about waste management is spread, and the establishment of a waste management learning centre is planned.
