Re: Invitation to PhD defence: Implementing resource recovery from urban organic waste

Dear Daniel,

Congratulations on this notable and impactful achievement.  This is a relevant tool to support policy development in the area of resource recovery from urban organic waste for many African countries. 

I would love to hear more on the subject concerning how your paper has addressed the issue of uncollected organic waste. After all, when we do look at the numbers, the biggest challenge is tackling un-serviced areas and uncollected waste handling at the household level. I often feel Solid Waste experts have a huge role to play in advocating for, and promoting programming for community knowledge management on solid waste handling at the community and household level. Community knowledge building and awareness creation are among the most basic solutions to handle solid waste at the household level within low-income to medium-income households. 

Post your defence, what strategy have you looked at to promote this tool and ensure that planners and policymakers across the continent (Africa) are aware of this resource?

Kind Regards,
