Solid Waste Management in the Pacific: Institutional Arrangements

dc.contributor.authorAllison Woodruff
dc.description.abstractThis flyer outlines institutional arrangements for solid waste management in the Pacific. Institutional arrangements for solid waste management (SWM) cover organizational structures and roles and responsibilities of agencies involved in various aspects of SWM, including interagency coordination, procedures and methods, capacity, and private sector involvement. Institutional arrangements also cover the laws, regulations, and policies implemented by concerned organizations to plan and manage their activities to fulfill their mandates on the management of solid waste. Ideally, institutional arrangements should be structured to promote effective, efficient, and sustainable SWM services to preserve environmental quality and protect public health. The core functions of SWM include (i) collection, (ii) transportation, (iii) disposal site operations, (iv) recycling operations, (v) public awareness, and (vi) monitoring and enforcement.
