Case studies: Solid waste management [Practical Guide to Mainstreaming Gender in Water Projects].
This group of 3 case studies that have been collected under the heading 'Solid waste management' form part of a project on mainstreaming gender in water projects to bring issues of social exclusion in the practical development of infrastructure in low-income countries into the core of project planning and design. They have been kept short and edited slightly to bring out the engineering issues. Topics covered are: Building on women's expertise; Roles in the informal waste sector; and Culturally sensitive solutions to household collections.
