As part of the Dutch funded CapVal project, IWMI and other partners in the consortium have been engaging with the Yilo Krobo Municipal Assembly (YKMA) to secure land within the Assembly for the construction of a compost plant to treat fecal sludge and organic waste in the municipality. On December 6, 2017, a team of 9 people made up of the local chief of Akorle village (the community where the compost plant is to be sited in YKMA), the youth leader, the assembly member of the area, the chairman of the agric sub-committee, a member of the development sub-committee, a member of the works department, the physical planning officer and the deputy director of the Assembly visited the Fortifer™ plant in Borteyman and IWMI office as part of an on-going 3-phase engagement process by YKMA. This visit is the second stage of the community engagement which was requested by the community and other opinion leaders (including some assembly members) to see what to be expected when the compost plant in YKMA is built. This will make them well informed so that they can give better explanation during the final community engagement. The final community (the bigger community) engagement was scheduled for Friday 8th December, 2017.
