CID is a business. It began by working with the 60,000 zabaleen who live on the outskirts of Cairo and gather daily 10,000 tons of garbage. CID introduced innovative social and environmental initiatives, including recycling as much as 80% of the inorganic waste into raw materials and manufactured goods. CID works with local and international partners and clients to link business and poor communities and create viable partnerships to address a myriad of needs, from rural sanitation and low cost housing to sustainable waste recycling programs. CID highlights how the reality of megacities, particularly in emerging markets, must place people at the center of waste management planning. (full text).
