DESPRO: Solid Waste Management Expert - TOR   

Municipalities are facing huge problems to solve their solid waste management issues themselves. Apart from the fact, that natural conditions are not suitable in all municipalities to run a landfill according to standards, the municipalities are hardly capable to establish sustainable Solid Waste management (SWM) systems due to limited financial resources and also lack of human capacities and knowhow in the field of SWM.
DESPRO will start a new line of activities with a focus on SWM. In particular DESPRO plans to become a leading actor as facilitator of systematic planning processes for sustainable solid waste management systems using an inter-municipal collaboration. Based on an Inception study a stepwise planning approach has been elaborated.
