Improved site management can help the waste sector adapt to climate change: case study

Case study looking at adapting waste site management as a result of climate change.



Adapting to climate change often requires changes to existing strategies and practices, rather than the creation of new ones. One of the effects of climate change is likely to be the exacerbation of problems that occur on waste management sites under normal changeable weather conditions. This suggests that prompt and effective management of identified problems at an early stage could make sites more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
