Innovative waste economies for inclusive urban development 

city project

Across three local settlements, the team is working closely with community groups and organisations to investigate and assess the possibilities for developing demonstrable strategies for the transformation of waste management in the city. 

Capacity building is central to the project as an overarching theme. This focuses on the process of scaling up business enterprises which could benefit the urban poor, along with reducing communities’ indirect costs associated with existing waste management practices. The team are also investigating how knowledge co-production and knowledge sharing between local actors can be used as a means to pave the way to policy change, institutionalising local enterprise solutions in waste management.
