Poor solid waste management has a damaging effect on communities and the environment. It spreads disease, impacts air quality and is a key source of ocean plastics pollution. But an estimated 3 billion people globally do not have access to waste collection and disposal services.
We work with NGOs, local and national governments and international agencies, such as World Bank and United Agencies, to develop waste and resource management systems that protect the environment and make a positive contribution to livelihoods and local economies.
We have recently delivered projects in India, Liberia, Ghana, Bangladesh, Indonesia, South Africa and Rwanda, and have also delivered a number of global studies on key issues such as recycling markets, plastics pollution and local government capacity issues.
