Solid Waste Management in Indonesia

Published Octubre 2013

Abstract

The theme of the October 2013 Prakarsa is "Solid Waste Management.” Feature articles consider the current state of solid waste management in Indonesia and discuss how Indonesia is moving from an old paradigm of collect-transport-dispose (often using informal methods such as burning, burying or dumping into canals) to a new, more sophisticated model that emphasises the 3Rs (reuse, reduce, recycle). An article on “waste banks” tells the inspiring stories of two communities that have made award-winning efforts to turn trash into cash. The October edition also provides a handy “IndII at a Glance” reference summarizing IndII's initiatives over 2013–2014 in the areas of water & sanitation, transport, and policy & investment.
