Waste Management in the Changing Climate

Chanathip Pharino, Nuchcha Phonphoton

This book chapter aims to explain potential impact of flooding to waste management services in cities and relevant stakeholders. Practical approaches for impact mitigation and preparedness of Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) services during floods are presented. Appropriate impact mitigation alternatives from relevant case studies are provided. The decision support system for planning and operation for any municipality is suggested based on the principles of sustainable development, considering environment, society, and economic factors. This information can help increase understanding to develop an appropriate mitigation management plan for waste management systems during floods toward sustainable cities and communities’ development.
