Work package 2

(Analysis and Evaluation of current situation in the target countries)

This work package aims to establish a complete and cross-sectional diagnosis of the current situation of target countries regarding solid waste management. This work will facilitate the development of appropriate technological and organizational solutions in WP3, as well as the elaboration of policy guidelines and recommendations in WP4.

The evaluation tools obtained in WP1 will be used for the following activities:

  • To carry out a regional characterization and assessment of the target countries in relation to the most relevant issues related to SWM. This characterization will focus on the identification of specific needs of solid waste management systems, the description of the national and regional legal and institutional frameworks in force as well as the socio-economic structure regarding SWM, the evaluation of the SWM practices and technologies in use in the four target countries and the identification of the main barriers hindering the implementation of ISWM.
  • To identify key stakeholders within the region; such as waste collectors and processors, local municipalities and policy makers, private companies providing waste management services, recycling and waste treatment industry, local NGOs, rural cooperatives, stakeholders from the informal sector, etc.
  • To evaluate the on-going R&D activities which are carried out in the region and also within IWWA's consortium.
