Sustainable waste management

Short Summary of Resource
This solutions package focuses on the processes which the LGs can undertake to promote sustainable waste management in their communities through a long-term approach called Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM)
Detailed description of the resource
A specific Solution is dedicated to the overall ISWM process, giving an overarching perspective in its different dimensions, including technical, political, institutional, social, economic, and financial. The remaining Solutions zoom-in on a particular component of the ISWM process which due to its relevance and/or complexity can be seen as separate process. These Solutions should be implemented in tandem with the ISWM Solution, and should take into account the local context.
