This report is a first of its kind in presenting vessel counts based on more than 55 aerial surveys covering 20 different anchor sites and nine classes of vessels over the course of an entire year. Results from this study, based on an overall count of more than 18,000 vessels, provide governmental regulators, tour operators and members of the local community with the first quantitative figures about the type of vessels and the annual use of popular anchor sites and of Eastern Moreton Bay (EMB) as a whole.

Practical Action Nepal Office has initiated a project “Strengthening Local Capacities in Integrated Sustainable Waste Management (ISWM) in small and medium municipalities of Nepal” with the financial support from European Union under its EC Asia Eco Pro II programme and close partnership among Practical Action Nepal, GTZ/udle, MuAN and WASTE. The project aims to improve the health and environmental conditions of disadvantaged people living in the project municipalities. One of the major activities of the project is to disseminate best practices on sustainable waste management technologies, processes and approaches, from which it can develop and adapt the processes that are suitable in the context of urban centres of developing countries.
