Characterization of the value chain of solid waste and proposals for development of inclusive markets through business development activities and production capabilities (El Salvador)

The Urban and Productive integrated Sustainable Settlements in El Salvador, Joint Programme, aims to expand economic opportunities for vulnerable groups with special emphasis on women with the ultimate aim of reducing the number of people living below the poverty line. The program aims to improve urban settlements, improve housing quality and strengthen the value chains of social housing construction through the provision and development of goods and services within reach of the poor. The cleaning train and solid waste represents a major cost to the municipalities which causes a limited and inadequate collection service. The recovery of solid waste represents a survival strategy for a large segment of poor population in developing countries and El Salvador is no exception.
