UN-Habitat launched the Waste Wise Cities Campaign on World Habitat Day in 2018. The campaign aims to enhance waste management and resource efficiency in the world’s cities. In its global report on “Solid Waste Management in the World’s Cities”, published in 2010, UN-Habitat established the framework of integrated sustainable waste management.
According to this framework, waste management systems must take care of both the physical and the governance aspects of waste. The physical aspects include waste collection, the 5Rs of recycling (Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) as well as waste disposal.
