Quelimane: organic production from market waste

Author: FAO, EStà, City of Quelimane
Publisher: FAO

The Municipality of Quelimane launched the “Quelimame Limpa” project to collect organic waste from urban food markets to dump in a compost-making facility managed by local associations. This valuable compost is then distributed to hundreds of gardens across the city. The project contributes to curbing the spread of diseases, to addressing malnutrition and to increasing household production and livelihoods.
