This item is part of the Waste Flow Diagram collection.

Dataset description

The Waste Flow Diagram toolkit is an excel-based model allowing users to perform a rapid assessment of municipal solid waste flows within a city or municipality. The tool maps these waste flows using Sankey diagrams and quantifies the plastic waste that is emitted from the solid waste management system and its eventual fate in the environment. The toolkit is specifically designed to integrate with SDG 11.6.1 by informing on the sub-indicators, and can be operated either as a baseline assessment or used for scenario forecasting.

Keywords: Municipal solid waste, plastic pollution, marine litter, waste flows, open burning, SDG 11.6.1
