In the evening of 11May 2021, Mr. Nuon Tha, Deputy Director of Battambang Provincial Tourism Department, led the skilled officials to meet for discussion works with Green City Technology Project Team (T4GC) of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and colleagues to discuss promoting the urban sanitation and public awareness campaigns for Green Cambodia.
T4GC is a project that uses technology to increase citizens’ participation and contribute to improving the delivery of solid waste management services in a transparent, sustainable and quality manner, promoting outreach and increasing economic opportunities through the reduction of solid waste emissions, increasing the use and recycling of solid waste at the household and business level to make Cambodia cleaner. The use of Technology (App) GreenCambodia allows citizens, the public and tourists to receive benefits such as:
- Able to find important information such as schedule and area where garbage is collected, name, contact number and address of garbage collection companies.
- Be able to report or comment on garbage problems, inactivity or anomalies in the technology system in conjunction with images and geographical location of those areas.
- Able to research articles, images and videos related to knowledge in effective and sustainable waste management.
- A marketplace that allows garbage seekers for recycling or reuse can also find people who want to donate or sell out the solid waste.
