Abstract

Our project assisted La Fundación Ciudad del Saber (FCdS) in laying the groundwork for a pilot composting program for food and vegetative waste that is technically feasible and culturally transformative. We discovered that the FCdS disposed of their organic waste at an unsanitary landfill, contributing to the endangerment of human health and the environment. We created a plan to help the FCdS divert their organics from Cerro Patacon to the first large-scale composting program in Panama.
