In our rapidly urbanizing global society, solid waste management will be a key challenge facing all the world's cities.

Solid Waste Management in the World's Cities provides a fresh perspective and new data on one of the biggest issues in urban development. Using the framework of Integrated Sustainable Waste Management (ISWM), the report brings together unprecedented research from 22 cities across six continents.

It uncovers the rich diversity of waste management systems that are in place throughout the world, and draws out the practical lessons for policymakers.

The volume will be essential reading for all professionals and policymakers in the field, as well as a valuable resource for researchers and students in all aspects of urban development. Winner of the International Solid Waste Association Publication Award 2010Published with UN-Habitat.
