The “Handbook on Waste Management in Rural Tourism Areas”  is being published by Thanal and the United Nation Development Program to help NGOs and Local Governments to assist communities to manage discards in the Endogenous Tourism Project sites. The hand book aims to develop a sustainable plan in tourism sites to deal with waste so that it will not distract visitors or deny them the special experiences of the unique sites in rural India. The Handbook has the limitation of language as we are dealing with diverse languages and diverse cultures.
