Strategic Planning Guide for Municipal Solid Waste Management



The Guide’s purpose is to provide comprehensive information, supporting methodologies and tools to  assist development of Strategic MSWM Plans at the local and regional level. The primary target audience is municipalities and regional authorities in developing countries and economies in transition, but much of the material in the Planning Guide will also be relevant and of use to all countries.


Collaborative Working Group on Municipal Solid Waste Management (CWG)


The Strategic Planning Guide has been produced as part of the collaborative work program of the CWG – a joint undertaking of international and bilateral agencies, professional associations, NGOs and leading specialists – under the technical guidance of the World Bank and with the financial support of Swiss Agency for Development and Co-operation (SDC) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID). Many CWG members have contributed to the development of the Guide.

The result is a comprehensive synopsis of experiences in developing MWSM services and standards that will hopefully contribute significantly to knowledge, skills and the promotion of sustainable waste management practices.
