What could Central Asia be doing differently with its trash?
Activists in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan have made a film arguing that Bishkek and Tashkent, with a little more effort, could extract energy, fertilizer and even clean up the air. The filmmakers also profile some people who are taking the problem into their own hands.
The filmmakers discuss some of the challenges they faced here.
The project "Developing Journalism: Exposing Climate Change" aims to identify the challenges of progressive climate change through the development and strengthening of independent media in Central Asia under the mentorship of experts from Media Development Center in Kyrgyzstan, Anhor.uz in Uzbekistan, Asia Plus in Tajikistan and Vlast.kz in Kazakhstan. The project is implemented by n-ost (Germany) and MediaNet International Centre for Journalism (Kazakhstan) with the support of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
