The Asia Waste Management Outlook (AWMO), which is regional in nature, is developed to complement the Global Waste Management Outlook (GWMO). This regional outlook provides an overview of the current status, the current thinking on “state of the art” topics, case studies, and the future of waste management in Asia over the medium term; challenges and opportunities, described through case studies; and recommendations based on technical, strategic, economic, and communication perspectives. AIT RRC.AP is the programme coordinator of this AWMO. The AWMO is developed with the support and guidance of UN Environment, the quality assurance by the Steering Committees and the consultations with regional stakeholders and contributions of countries. Recognizing the challenges and opportunities, recommendations have been made over medium term based on strategic, technical, economic and institutional perspectives.
