This dataset reports solid waste abundance and composition data from households and commercial activities expressed in number of items, weight or volume for Vanuatu. It reports the results of interviews done when solid waste samples were collected to gather metadata about household occupants social and behavioural metadata, including the fate of solid waste not collected through the official waste management service.
This Practical Guide is the compilation of good practices identified and developed by experts in the region through J-PRISM Phase I. This covers all solid waste management (SWM) issues from the technical ones, such as waste generation survey and landfill improvement, to the managerial ones, such as contract management and user pays system. These good practices have high applicability to other Pacific islands, although modification and adaptation are always necessary.

This research covers two PNG cities, Port Moresby (POM) and Lae. POM has a
population of 650,000+ and Lae has 200,000+. Both cities expect rapid
population growth (due to urban drift) and economic boom (due to gas, oil and
mineral projects), and therefore the level of waste generation and management is
becoming a real concern.
