TOOLKITs

Guiding countries in their data collection is particularly necessary as to date a limited number of countries report national data that are internationally comparable data on waste statistics. Measuring waste statistics is an important step towards addressing the waste challenge since statistics help to evaluate developments over time, set and assess targets, and identify best practices in policies.

Better waste data will help track the global target of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in particular SDG 12, to “ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns,” as well as other SDGs. E-waste statistics are in particular relevant for SDG 12.4.2 on hazardous waste and SDG 12.5.1 on the national recycling rate. In addition, these datasets are becoming of increasing importance for global treaties, such as Minamata, Basel Conventions, and the upcoming Plastic Treaty.

UNITAR-SCYCLE has co-developed toolkits and methodologies to support countries tracking their waste management.
