El Salvador: New Composting Plant

This plant is the first of 42 that are planned to be constructed as part of the National Integrated Solid Waste Management Program.

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

The signing of an agreement between four councils in south eastern El Salvador, the Ministry for the Environment and Natural Resources (MARN) and the Social Investment Fund for Regional Development (FISDL) is the beginning of the process to allocate funds for the studies and designs necessary to develop the composting and recycling facility.

MARN is responsible for managing the project's funds, technical support and monitoring progress. In practice this means identifying the site, carrying out environmental impact assessments and designing the plant.

FISDL will also provide financial support while the councils will make sure that funds are available for the acquisition of land and logistical support where necessary.
