CAPTION: Door-to-door waste collection is undertaken using mobile carts. The waste is brought here, to the materials recovery centre, where volunteers separate and recycle it. Previously, inadequate waste disposal was causing waterways to block, increasing the severity of flooding. The Climate Core Team has recognised this initiative as a 'best practice' for increasing urban climate change resilience and it has also been identified as a potential initiative for replication across other barangays. LOCATION: Materials Recovery Facility and Urban Garden, East Rembo Barangay, Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines. INDIVIDUAL(S) PHOTOGRAPHED: N/A.
