Municipal solid waste generation and associated greenhouse gas emissions are expected to continue to rise, especially in low- and middle-income countries.
This report attempts to understand how cities can more sustainably manage organic waste through composting. It presents successful municipal-level composting models and the social, policy, and financial environments that enable them.
Starting with the pre-conditions needed in the initial planning phase to potential financing sources and supportive policies, this report walks readers through the key factors a city must deliberate prior to pursuing composting as a waste management solution.
