The helpdesk request ‘Opportunities and entry points to mainstream best
practices in solid waste management in low income countries’ was
undertaken to provide a series of knowledge pieces in the form of
presentations around key aspects of solid waste that will inform DFID on
how and where solid waste might feature in its delivery programme and
support the global goals.
Part A of the presentation on sustainable waste management, made to DFID
on 22 February 2016, considers the sustainable waste management (SWM)
problem. It asks why is SWM important? What are the drivers. It then
reviews the current status and trends before examining the importance of
integrated sustainable waste management, in particular governance
factors, and looks at the World Bank perspective.
Part B of the presentation covers alternative solutions: - some
local/innovative approaches, and making the case for action and
reflections on success factors.
