TWG For Waste Management in PNG

License

This research covers two PNG cities, Port Moresby (POM) and Lae. POM has a
population of 650,000+ and Lae has 200,000+. Both cities expect rapid
population growth (due to urban drift) and economic boom (due to gas, oil and
mineral projects), and therefore the level of waste generation and management is
becoming a real concern.
