As economies develop and grow, so does consumerism. A major fallout of consumerism, can be the inefficient ways of managing waste generated before, during and after consumption. Addressing waste management as a global priority will facilitate meeting the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The Global Waste Management Goals are already explicit or implicit within the Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs].
Waste management has strong linkages to a range of other global challenges: health, climate change, poverty reduction, food and resource security, sustainable production and consumption.
