Waste Management

The world faces unprecedented challenges in waste management. Currently, only 67% of global solid waste is collected, and 33% of it is openly dumped. It is expected that in 2050 waste production will be 70% higher than in 2020. Inadequately managed (municipal solid) waste is a major source of marine litter and contributes 5% to greenhouse gases. Sound waste management, which includes the 3-R strategy “REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE”, can be a precursor and catalyst to a circular economy. By tackling waste management, countries can improve health, hygiene, and the environment and bring resources back into the economy.
