Sustainable Neighbourhood Development Programme (SNDP)
SNDP aims to develop a sustainable neighbourhood framework that is community-driven and focuses on long term behavioural change, especially in waste management. The focus is premised on the basis that we can positively shape our future through connected efforts and sharing responsibility between individuals, communities, organization, businesses and all levels of government.

In 2021, one SNDP pilot project will be launched in collaboration with SEA Circular Project at two selected zero waste communities in Penang – Taman Bagan Lalang and Kampung Permatang Nibong at Seberang Perai.
This pilot project serves as a case study to analyse and identify a more comprehensive framework in developing a sustainable neighbourhood.
