Flyng, Torsten Lajoie, 2011. Act for action : The Sabido Methodology in Burkina Faso can make a difference in reducing plastic waste. Second cycle, A1E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Urban and Rural Development



Plastic garbage is accumulating in the streets and fields of cities and rural areas in Burkina Faso. It is slowly turning into a physical threat to both livestock and human health. This paper does not focus on the physical problem of plastic garbage in the landscape but rather seeks to introduce the Sabido Methodology, as used by the NGO Population Media Centre, as a social change approach to address the underlying issue that people without thought discard plastic anywhere and everywhere. The Sabido Methodology is presented in this paper as a means of addressing the social behaviour that allows for plastic to be tossed indiscriminately in the streets, and, suggests that it is a methodology that should be used in tandem with structural efforts to curb the plastic garbage explosion.
