Denpasar is the capital city of Bali province. Situated on the Bali island, it is known worldwide as a major tourist destination, and is the main gateway to Bali. The city is also a hub for other cities in the Lesser Sunda Islands.

With the rapid growth of the tourism industry in Bali, Denpasar has encouraged and promoted business activities and ventures, contributing to it having the highest growth rate in Bali Province. The municipality's area extend, population, and density are similar to San Francisco.

The City of Denpasar is one of the fastest growing cities in Indonesia. The most recent census (2012) has the city’s population over 835,000 residents. From 2000 to 2010 Denpasar grew on average about 4% per year from 533,000 to over 788,000; the fastest population growth decade in 50 years. This rapid population growth is directly related to the equally rapidly growing tourism industry which is primarily in the southern part of the island where Denpasar is located. Greater Denpasar spills out into the tourist regions of Kuta to the south and Ubud to the north. The continuous urban built-up area includes most of Badung Regency, where 80% of the tourism industry is focused. Indonesia defined Metropolitan Denpasar as ‘Sarbagita’ an acronym for Denpa"Sar" +"BA"dung +"GI"anyar +"TA"banan, with Presidential Regulation Number 45 Year 2011, given that the government anticipates these regions to expand into each other in the coming decade.

Indonesia is the 5th fastest-growing economy in 2015 and as in most developing countries, there is a gap between a growing consumption, which produces ever more waste, and a lack of public services to handle its consequences. Inadequate environmental management is a challenge for Indonesia that hurts the poor and the economy, the province of Bali is no exception.

Overall project goal is to establish a model waste management system in Indonesia working with local TPSTs (integrated waste facilities) and waste banks in metropolitan Denpasar; to develop standard management tools through the use of geospatial data and ICT technology as to improve overall management, services and planning. Subsequently the lessons learned will be replicated at similar facilities in surrounding regions of Denpasar.
