Waste Wise Cities was launched in 2018 by UN-Habitat’s Executive Director Ms Maimunah Mohd Sharif with a call to action to tackle the global waste management challenge. It aims to enhance municipal solid waste management as well as resource efficiency in the world’s cities by working in 4 key action areas with its Member Cities and Affiliates, namely: Knowledge & Good Practices Sharing; Waste Data & Monitoring; Advocacy & Education: and Project Finance & Bankability Support.
The Waste Wise Cities Newsletter is published bi-monthly and provides articles on different waste-related topics, e.g. the Sustainable Development Goals, Tools and certain waste management technologies, introduces Waste Wise Cities Affiliates, gives updates about activities and highlights upcoming and past events. At the moment the newsletter is available in English, French and Spanish.
