International transfer of waste management policies

Closing the loop on the use of resources is a central goal of the European and German waste policy and has potentially great synergies with resource and climate policies. The topic is also particularly relevant for emerging economies and developing countries given their fast growth of waste and the international challenges in the field of resource and climate policy.


The project analyses four selected emerging economies/ developing countries with regard to waste treatment. Based on an analysis of the existing framework conditions and capacities in these countries, possible contributions from the transfer of European and German approaches to waste treatment shall be outlined. These options will be discussed and further developed with local stakeholder in these countries. The results will later be published in country-specific publications and presented and discussed in a conference in Germany.


The particular involvement of FFU focuses on policy analysis of the waste policy framework conditions in Germany and the EU as well as the question of policy transfer.
