Résumé
This thesis examines the environmental, human, social and economic issues related to the issues of waste management in Senegal (and almost every country from the Global South). It is a challenge that the local governments are still grappling with. Studies have shown that by implementing a sustainable and operational framework grounded in strong and effective policies that take into account both the people and the environment, two other challenges that a lot of developing countries face can be addressed by ricochet. The first is energy issues – as the methane generated from the landfills can be converted to produce energy – electricity, also mitigating methane emissions and thus addressing climate change. The second is the creation of jobs through a circular economy, which is ground-breaking in a country where the unemployment rate is at a staggering 16.51%.
