In response to this call, UNEP IETC in collaboration with UNITAR has developed “Guidelines for national waste management strategies: Moving from challenges to opportunities” - a conceptual and methodological framework for national planning to which countries may adapt their particular circumstances. Additionally UNEP IETC has been working since 2006 with an in-house elaborated set of guidelines on the development of Integrated Solid Waste Management Plans.
AIT RRCAP is supporting the activities of the development of National and City waste management strategies and its action plans. Countries covered include Southeast Asia: Cambodia, Myanmar; South Asia: Bhutan, India and Nepal; Northeast Asia: Mongolia.
The online Waste Management Knowledge platform in the knowledge hub aims to become the centre point for waste and waste management data/information collection and dissemination in Asia and the Pacific region. The platform supports the implementation of UNEP work, including scaling up and replication of various projects; provides data/information support for national and local governments and relevant stakeholders to improve waste management system and promotes 3Rs.
