Dealing with Waste: Resource Recovery and Entrepreneurship in Informal Solid Waste Management in African Cities
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Human Geography.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-3411-4826
2017 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The scope of the problem of waste management in African cities continues to change across space and time in line with changing socio-economic, political and environmental conditions. Crucially, the failure of the formal systems has paved the way for the informal sector. The overall aim of the book is to capture the dynamism and complexity of Informal Sector Solid Waste Management (ISSWM). The main argument is that while the poverty reduction potential of ISSWM remains valid and is acknowledged; there are broader issues to consider.
