Work package 4

(Elaboration of Policy guidelines and recommendations)

Workpackage 4 (WP4) aims to evaluate the available policy options for Integrated Solid Waste Management, taking into account the results obtained from previous WPs and to elaborate a set of recommendations for the development of the appropriate management and planning strategies in a multidisciplinary approach.

In this regard, the guidelines on implementation strategies will analyse and describe different policy measures, taking into account the results from WP2 and WP3 ("Analysis and evaluation of the current situation in target countries" and "Integrated Solid Waste Management Systems and Approaches", respectively). The evaluation will include different issues related to producer's responsibility, substance bans, voluntary agreements with multinational companies and regulatory measures to be taken by Public Authorities, among others.

Besides, four policy briefs will be also developed including specific recommendations for the establishment of plans, targets and objectives with regards to the implementation of ISWM systems. The policy briefs are intended to guide SWM stakeholders, specially authorities, policy makers and governmental agencies in the development and execution of National and Regional Action Plans in their respective countries under the premises of the analysis carried out in IWWA.
