dc.description.abstractThis flyer outlines the status of solid waste management in Palau and recommends key points for action to address challenges facing the country related to solid waste management. Palau had a population of around 17,400 in 2012. Approximately 70% of the population resides in Koror, the country’s commercial and business center. Palau’s per capita gross domestic product was $13,093 in 2012 (footnote 1). The country’s economy is heavily reliant on tourism receipts, which are estimated to account for 50% of GDP. Since the pristine natural environment is one of the main reasons tourists visit Palau, eff ective management of solid wastes is critical to the country’s continued prosperity.
