Improving Waste Collection with BeSci

This intervention sought to improve waste collection at the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park in Mongolia. The project activities consisted of 3 phases: (1) conducting a baseline study of the target area, which included a detailed analysis of the waste generation rate and gave insight into the waste disposal behaviour of visitors; (2) designing the behavioural interventions with a detailed trial methodology targeting the visitors; (3) implementing the behavioural interventions and developing policy recommendations informed by behavioural insights. The project distributed bags and installed waste containers that were printed with messages informed by behavioural science. Waste collection increased by 86 percent.
