Waste Management

As waste volumes, in terms of their complexity and hazardousness, are increasing yearly, they continue to pose numerous challenges to both governments, at both national and city level, as well as to local communities. Additionally, the waste management in most developing countries is disorganized, haphazard, and under-resourced. To manage municipal solid waste, there is a need for a paradigm shift away from only managing waste by properly disposing it, to converting most of the waste into energy or material resources. This shift will help countries in supporting energy and material security as well as in boosting economic activities, while at the same time alleviating poverty. To obtain proactive solution in this shift, RRCAP is partnering with international agencies like UNEP and other bilateral donors with the following projects: National Waste Management Strategy for 10 countries/cities; Climate and Clean Air Coalition – Municipal Solid Waste Initiative (CCAC-MSWI); Asian End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) recycling; Industrial Waste Inventory and other waste management and 3R related activities.
