Clean up Nepal began all from a desire to pick up the litter that lined the roads of Kathmandu. Behind this simple desire to pick up rubbish is the notion of behavioral change. Research on community-led cleanup activities began in 2011, which lead to the discovery that overall awareness on littering habits was limited and cleanup activities were carried out every so often on a one-off basis. Because these cleanup activities weren’t ongoing and connected, the momentum built during an individual cleanup was often lost. Clean up Nepal aims to fill this gap by providing a unified platform for engagement of local communities in the cleanup of areas where they live, work and play. If each locality takes an active interest in waste management, Nepal will see significant improvements in the condition of its streets, roads and rivers.
