Solid Waste Management and Recycling PDF, The project on which this book is based results from the interest within the group of staff and junior researchers at the University of Amsterdam on how urban environmental management could be made more sustainable. Earlier studies in India and Peru had given us knowledge on how widespread small enterprises recycling waste materials for profit and people picking waste were in many cities in the South.
Solid Waste Management and Recycling
The debate on how to combine ecological sustainability with socio-economic improvements in the lives of many urban citizens led to the formulation of the project that lies behind this book.
It aimed at improving our understanding of the factors that underlie the dynamics of the provision of a particular urban environmental service (solid waste management), and also at providing policymakers and city managers with ideas about how they can tackle the problems of improving the quality of the urban environment they are dealing with daily.
This project could not have been carried out without the help of a great many people. Our grateful thanks go first of all to the EU INCO-DC Programme, which provided a generous grant for the research project on Enabling Strategies for Urban Environmental Management in Mega-cities (ERBIC18CT970152).
The Consortium formed for the project consisted of researchers from the Amsterdam Global Issues and Development Studies Institute (AGIDS), Department of Human Geography, the University of Amsterdam as coordinator under my guidance, the International Institute of Environment and Development (IIED) in London, under the guidance of Dr D. Satterthwaite,
The Centre for Economic and Social Studies in Hyderabad, India under guidance of Dr S.Galab, and the School of Environmental Studies, Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya, under the guidance of Prof. Dr Th. Davies.
