Abstract

The issue of waste management is examined from a social science perspective focusing on its social 'construction' and the issue of governance (Chapter 1). Chapter Two summarises the legal and policy parameters. Chapters Three and Four report on the findings based on interviews with 'key players' in terms of (a) their perception of the current situation on waste management; (b) their understanding of current 'drivers' of waste management strategy; (c) their perspectives on ways forward and on the potential for North/South co-operation in this area. Chapter Five analyses the issue in terms of democratic participation, sustainable development, and governance. Chapter Six on conclusions and recommendations charts a way forward, emphasising the need to follow the 'waste hierarchy', a genuine partnership process and better governance.
