Jonathan Crush, Godfrey Tawodzera, Abel Chikanda Living With Xenophobia. Zimbabwean Informal Enterprise in South Africa

This report examines the impact of xenophobic violence on Zimbabweans who are trying to make a living in the South African informal sector and finds that xenophobic violence has several key characteristics that put them at constant risk of losing their livelihoods and their lives. The businesses run by migrants and refugees in the informal sector are a major target of South Africa’s extreme xenophobia. Attitudinal surveys clearly show that South Africans differentiate migrants by national origin and that Zimbabweans are amongst the most disliked. This report is based on a survey of informal sector enterprises in Cape Town and Johannesburg; and 50 in-depth interviews with Zimbabwean informal business owners in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Polokwane who had been affected by xenophobic violence. In many areas, community leaders are ineffective in dealing with the violence and, in some cases, they actively foment hostility and instigate attacks. The fact that migrant entrepreneurs provide goods, including food, at competitive prices and offer credit to consumers is clearly insufficient to protect them when violence erupts. However, the deep-rooted crisis in Zimbabwe makes return home a non- viable option and Zimbabweans instead adopt several self-protection strategies, none of which is ultimately an insurance against xenophobic attack. The findings in this report demonstrate that xenophobic violence fails in its two main aims: to drive migrant entrepreneurs out of business and to ...

Dutta Jyotisikha Municipal Waste Management In Guwahati City

Guwahati City is facing a serious threat from the growing generation of municipal waste. The performance of municipal waste collection and disposal system in the city has been observed to be very poor. After introduction of Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) programme, the waste scenario is found to be more miserable. In a few places of Guwahati city, some local private bodies provided services of waste collection and disposal in their respective localities in terms of monthly payment before the ISWM programme. But advent of ISWM has created confusion among the beneficiaries regarding the efficiency of services and monthly payment procedure. A study has been made to find out the Willingness to Pay (WTP) of the people of Guwahati city for local private service for waste collection and disposal purposes along with the studies on municipal waste management of the city. A comparative study has also been conducted to find out the preference of the people for both the ISWM.

Emmanuel Awohouedji Can the Republic of Benin Achieve the SDGs Through Best Waste Management Practices.

Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Environmental Policy, grade: A, The American University, Washington, DC (School of International Service), language: English, abstract: Sustainable development goals (SDGs) and households' solid waste management (HSWM) in the Republic of Benin, West Africa is the focus of this research. It explicitly investigates fermentable (organic) waste. Drawing on qualitative research, it argues that households' waste management could be a driver in the achievement of the SDGs. It briefly examines the international context of waste policy establishment and the framework of internationally supported waste project in the Republic of Benin (RB or Benin) in order to demonstrate the importance of socio-cultural factors in the waste sector. Through the lenses of urban political ecology and political ecology of waste theories, it explains how the perception and the treatment of waste in pre-colonial Benin might have changed over time, compared to postcolonial Benin. Inspired by one of the main challenges of the 21st century, achieving a worldwide sustainable development, the paper suggests a different approach of perceiving and treating waste in general and organic waste in particular. It argues that a community-based approach based on cooperatives could be the answer to the waste issue, but could also provide a canvas for the successful and inclusive achievement of the SDGs in Benin.

Emmanuel Chilanga, Liam Riley, Juliana Ngwira Food Insecurity in Informal Settlements in Lilongwe Malawi

Although there is widespread food availability in urban areas across the Global South, it is not correlated with universal access to adequate amounts of nutritious foods. This report is based on a household survey conducted in 2015 in six low-income informal areas in Malawi’s capital city, where three-quarters of the population live in informal settlements. Understanding the dimensions of household food insecurity in these neighbourhoods is critical to sustainable and inclusive growth in Lilongwe. The survey findings provide a complementary perspective to the 2008 AFSUN survey conducted in Blantyre, which suggested a level of food security in urban Malawi that was probably more typical of peri-urban areas where many people farm. Given that informal settlements house most of Malawi’s urban residents, the Lilongwe research presents a serious public policy challenge for the country’s leaders. Poverty is a profound problem in Malawi’s rapidly expanding cities. Of particular concern is the poor quality of diets among residents of informal settlements. Precarity of income, reflected in the survey findings of frequent purchasing of staple foods and the need for food sellers to extend credit, appears to be a key driver of food insecurity in these communities. Economically inclusive growth, with better prospects for stable employment and protection for informal-sector workers, appears to be the surest route to improved urban food security in Malawi.

Edward Anomanyo Win by Integrating Solid Waste Management with Bioreactor Treatment

In a lot of communities in developing countries and in Accra Ghana, for that matter, solid waste management is characterized by single method approaches such as collect-and-dump. Lesser social acceptability of dump sites and inadequate operational funding often lead to collapse of these management systems. Solid waste quantities and composition in such communities present an opportunity to plan and operate management strategies that address social, economic and environmental impacts of the waste. Integrating strategies as collection and sorting for recycling, stakeholder (private investors, policy makers/management and the public) involvement and bioreactor treatment will yield optimum benefits to operational funds, clean environment and to society; a win-win-win scenario that must be appealing to policy makers and investors.

Adriana Holmberg Milea Waste as a Social Dilemma

In Delhi, as in many other large cities in the developing world, the inappropriate management of municipal solid waste is a significant flaw in the quality of life of its residents and a serious threat to the environment. This book focuses on city residents as waste producers and their role in municipal solid waste management. It argues that the waste problem is caused by human behaviour and therefore the solution lies in changing that behaviour. After examining waste related attitudes and behaviours and the factors influencing these, the book proposes several policy recommendations aiming to reach more environment-friendly and socially equitable conduct. In other words it suggests ways to escape the social dilemma of being buried under one's own trash. Besides making an appealing reading to environmentalists and to anyone interested in social dilemmas and waste management, the book is especially useful for government bodies and NGOs planning interventions for improving solid waste management systems, as well as for all those who believe it is time to place waste at the top of development agendas instead of, yet again, sweeping it under the carpet.

Nicole Bauer Preventing the Emerald Isle from Sinking into Waste

Since its economic boom in the 1990s Ireland has been facing ever growing waste arisings. Strict European legislation forced the country to find alternative solutions to sole waste disposal on which the country had been relying on exclusively. The Irish Government has aimed to decouple waste production from economic growth. The author doubts that the planned introduction of thermal treatment facilities would be an appropriate way to achieve the country´s ambitious targets in terms of waste management. Alternatively the author introduces a zero waste approach as a solution to Ireland´s waste problems. If a zero waste approach was applied emphasis would have to be put on reduction, minimization and recycling. Accordingly, the country of Ireland would pay its contribution to world wide challenging environmental protection and sustainable resource management.

Solid waste management, in addition to technical management, is prioritized in community management where urban population densities have grown to levels that induce solid waste management pressures. A reasonable fraction of municipal solid wastes can be recycled at the source or temporary disposal facilities. Composting program for solid waste management is recently intensified in many big cities of Java that promote the use of compost. There is good potential for large-scale composting that needs good compost quality: stable and mature, to improve the management of municipal solid waste. The remaining fraction of solid waste can be managed mostly through disposal in landfills. Following final disposal, biodegradable solid waste is transformed into leachate, which should be treated to prevent negative impact towards living organisms and ecosystem. This monograph is valuable sources for sanitary engineers and other professionals, governments, politicians and other non-government organizations as well as public communities. It is also addressed to students who are preparing for professional careers in solid waste management.

In contemporary times, people have come to realize the importance of vegetables as rich source of vitamins and minerals which aid to protect their body against infection and diseases. This knowledge has increased the demand of both exotic and indigenous vegetables in the cities as such any available space in the cities has become a major farming centre for vegetable producers. On the other hand,there has been an increasing incidence of food borne diseases which is link to enteric pathogenic micro organisms found in fecal material and for that matter waste water. It implies that there might be possible contamination of vegetables that are irrigated with waste water. This means that untreated waste water use in vegetable irrigation can pose a serious Public Health problem to both consumers and producers. Therefore, the WHO has set standards for waste water reuse. However, the waste water use for vegetable irrigation in the study area is not treated and also, perception of consumers and farmers about the use of untreated waste water in vegetable irrigation in the study area is not known, hence the study seeks to find out the farmers as well as consumers perceptions about the problem.

Ceramic materials have found numerous applications in science, technology and industry as mentioned earlier. One of the recent applications of titania and zirconia based ceramic precursors is in immobilization and solidification of radioactive isotopes in waste effluents coming out of nuclear establishments and power plants. Due to long term stability and integrity of the ceramic waste forms of high and intermediate level nuclear waste, several countries have now switched over from 'glass technology' to 'ceramic technology' of radwaste management. These and many more applications make ceramics materials an interesting area of research and engineering sciences. The book is particularly aimed at scientific and technical staff in the nuclear and waste management industries in addition to universities and research organizations active in these areas. It will also appeal to a wider audience with interests in environmental issues and will be of benefit to anyone who requires background information on radioactive issues connected with nuclear energy or defense processes, or hazardous waste sources, properties and treatments using crystallographic methods.

Jonathan Crush, Caroline Skinner, Manal Stulgaitis Rendering South Africa Undesirable. A Critique of Refugee and Informal Sector Policy

To understand the policy environment within which refugees establish and operate their enterprises in South Africa’s informal sector, this report brings together two streams of policy analysis. The first concerns the changing refugee policies and the erosion of the progressive approach that characterized the immediate post-apartheid period. The second concerns the informal sector policy, which oscillates between tolerance and attempted destruction at national and municipal levels. While there have been longstanding tensions between foreign and South African informal sector operators, an overtly anti-foreign migrant sentiment has increasingly been expressed in official policy and practice.This report describes the strategies being used to turn South Africa into an undesirable destination for refugees, including the setting up of additional procedural, administrative and logistical hurdles; the undercutting of court judgments affirming the right of asylum-seekers and refugees to employment and self-employment; ensuring that protection is always temporary by making it extremely difficult for refugees to progress to permanent residence and eventual citizenship; and restricting opportunities to pursue a livelihood in the informal sector. The authors conclude that the protection of refugee rights is likely to continue to depend on a cohort of non-governmental organizations prioritizing migrant livelihood rights and being willing and able to pursue time-consuming and costly litigati...

Yasabie Abatneh Preliminary study on the conversion of different waste plastics into fuel oil

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Engineering - Chemical Engineering, Wollo University (Kombolcha Institute Of Technology), course: Chemical Engineering , language: English, abstract: Abstract: The objective of the work is the conversion of waste plastics into fuel oil. Plastic wastes such as, polypropylene, low density polyethylene, high density polyethylene, polystyrene are the most frequently used in everyday activities and disposed of to the environment after service. Plastic are those substances which can take long periods of time to decompose if disposed off simply to the environment. Therefore, waste plastic should be changed into usable resources. The different waste plastics were thermally cracked at different temperature and then it was tried to measure the oil produced, the residue left after the reaction is completed, and the gas produced. Then it is compared that which types of plastics can yield higher amount of oil. There are a number of methods by which plastic wastes can be managed such as incineration, recycling, land filling, and thermal cracking. But this work focuses on thermal cracking of waste plastic to change them into usable resources, because in this method the emission of hazardous gases to the environment insignificant. This means we can change all the waste in to useful resources. Keywords: liquid oil, thermal cracking, and waste management system

Stefania Romano Inefficient or not correctly enforced. Waste policies in Naples

Waste management is gaining importance on today's decision-makers' agenda. the effectiveness of political actions on waste management affects directly the daily life of citizens, who are more and more sensitive to how waste plans are implemented and waste processes take place. In order to look into the whole process one single case will be depicted; the case of Naples which, in 2008, became infamous for its patent poor waste management. The study of this case will highlight the different phases of waste cycle, the involvement of different stakeholders, whether from the governmental - central and local - or the private sector, as well as the citizens themselves, and, last but not least, an examination of the legal framework regulating waste management. Leading topics of this research study will be the causes of such ecological disruption; the extent to which these are due to political negligence; and the solutions suggested for repairing the damage.

Magnus Jegermalm Informal Care and Support for Carers

The general aim of this book is to describe and analyse patterns of informal care and support for carers in Sweden. A typology of four different care categories based on what carers do revealed that women were much more likely than men to be involved at the 'heavy end' of caring, i.e. providing personal care in combination with a variety of other caring tasks. Men were more likely than women to provide some kind of practical help The book also examines whether the carer support that is provided by municipalities and voluntary organizations in Sweden is aimed directly or indirectly at caregivers and discusses whether the Swedish government's special financial investment in help for carers actually led to any changes in the support provided by municipalities and voluntary organisations. In the fields of social planning and social work there appears to be a need to clarify the aims of support services for informal carers. How informal caregivers and care recipients interact with the care system as a whole is undeniably a fertile field for further research.

Gerhard Langenberger Land use in the Greater Mekong Subregion - A Challenge for Society, Economy and Biodiversity

Document from the year 2010 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Regional Geography, University of Hohenheim, course: -, language: English, abstract: Southwest China has undergone serious changes in recent years. In this respect, it is representative of large areas in South Asia and in particular the ‚Greater Mekong Subregion' (GMS) with its 300 Mio inhabitants. The GMS is an informal cooperation of Thailand, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Cambodia, Viet Nam, and the P.R. China (Yunnan and Guangxi Province) to promote the development of the region.While being far off from global developments and characterized by subsistence economy in the past, the region turned out to become one of the most dynamic areas worldwide. A new highway system connects the countries of the GMS, and the area is opened up to international markets. Cash crops such as rubber, which plays already a significant role in local economy, will become even more attractive and speed up land-use cover change (LUCC) with all its consequences for man and his environment.As a consequence of the dynamic development, socio-economic and cultural traditions are challenged, leading to a rapid change or even disappearance of traditional land-use systems. The consequences are manifold and affect people and their livelihood, as well as the century-old cultural landscape with its high (agro-)biodiversity.

Muthoni Paul Stakeholder and solid waste

Municipal solid waste management (MSWM) constitute a serious problem in most cities in the developing countries. Most of them do not collect in totality the solid waste generated and from the amount collected only a small fraction is properly disposed. This unsustainable SW handling has acted a source of land, air and water pollution, thus, posing risk to humans and the environment as waste find its way on street, roadside and open fields. Most literatures claim that the increase of waste is as a result of urbanization, economic growth and globalization especially in the developing countries. The situation has led cities to increasingly invest in research, technology, infrastructures improvement and formation of a strong legislation in attempting to refurbish the failing SWM systems. But with the current conventional system of SW approach might not allow these attempts to gain stability. It is for this reason this paper examines decentralized approach effectiveness in solving the SWM problems and further supporting these effort using the city of Nairobi as a case study.

Kingsley Udoakpan Comparative Study on the Effectiveness of Musa Sapientum and Musa Cardaba Peel Waste in the Removal of Heavy Metals from Waste Water

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Chemistry - Analytical Chemistry, grade: Publication, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture (College of Natural and Applied Sciences), course: Chemistry, language: English, abstract: Biosorption has been widely used as a more efficient alternative for the current expensive approach to heavy metal remediation from water and waste water. The effectiveness of ripe Musa sapientum (MSR) and ripe Musa cardaba (MCR) peels in the removal of Cd2+, Fe2+, Pb2+, Zn2+ ions was investigated. The amount of metal ions sorbed depended on the metal ion - adsorbent contact time, ion concentration and adsorbent weight. Weight of adsorbent was varied between 0.1 - 0.4g; contact time, 5 - 25 minutes; and ion concentration, 0.01 - 0.04M. The results indicated that Musa sapientum (Ripe) showed higher percentage sorption in removing metal ions from waste water than Musa cardaba (Ripe) peels. The peak percentage sorption of metal ions by MSR peel waste are; Cd2+ (99.95%), Fe2+ (100%), Pb2+ (100%), Zn2+ (99.92%) while metal ions by MCR peel waste was; Cd2+ (99.74%), Fe2+ (99.83%), Pb2+ (100%), Zn2+ (99.60%). The results obtained above showed that both adsorbent species are favourable for sorption and removal of the test heavy metals from their aqueous environment. Nevertheless, ripe Musa sapientum (MSR) is highly recommended for both Fe2+ and Pb2+ uptake due to its sorption capacity and efficiency.

Agrawal Ayushi Gender Inequality in Construction Work

Gender inequality is broader concept which is deep rooted in society. Unequal treatment of women in social life is strikingly pervasive - no matter whether they are engaged in household work or working outside as paid labour. Though gender based discriminations and inequalities do exist in all segments and walks of world of work, such differential treatment becomes more blatant and acute when it comes to women's work in the informal sector. Women's work in construction sector is a good example for visible gender based inequalities in informal sector work. Construction industry is one of the industries which is characterised by very little unpaid labour and higher proportions of migrant workers (both men and women). Though the construction industry includes large number of female workforce but still in comparison to men their number is very small. In the above backdrop, the present paper discusses the direct and implicit gender-based inequalities in the world of informal work - based on an in-depth field study of migrant construction workers in Okhla area of New Delhi.

Sifat Ara Siddique Expanding Informal Sector Activities in Dhaka City. A Case Study of Education Coaching

The study of urban informal sector education has gained importance and expanded the scope and contents of the study in the last thirty years. One of the major challenges for geographers is finding the dynamics of this sector, as it is expanding gradually and a huge number of students are related to this activities. This research examines the role of education coaching as an urban informal activity. Dhaka city as a center of education has been experiencing the proliferation of coaching centers for the last twenty years. The mushrooming of coaching centers is symptomatic of the failure of Bangladesh's education system as a whole. Formal education institutions are failing to provide students with necessary instructions in the classrooms. This is why the guardians and their wards are making a beeline for education coaching. This research aims to describe the process of growth of coaching centers as an informal sector activity with a special emphasis on students' involvement in this process. As an empirical research, it follows a detailed questionnaire survey and direct interview method. This study discusses the size of economy controlled by the coaching centers, students' dependency on coaching and the impact of these phenomena.

J. Woods, D. Walton Fallacies. Selected Papers 1972-1982

In the past forty years there has been a revolution in logic. There is a widening consensus that mathematical logic has not been a satisfactory theory of argumentation, where argumentation is taken as a means of rational belief-revision and conflict resolution. It is also widely held that the traditional informal fallacies are inadequately analyzed in standard accounts found in the logical writings of the period 1950-1970.Here in nineteen chapters are the classical papers of Woods and Walton published in the decade 1972-1982, and constituting the so-called Woods-Walton Approach to fallacy theory. Originally published as a collection in 1989, the book is now re-issued with a new Forward by Dale Jacquette. Woods and Walton are recognized for their seminal role in reviving the fallacies project in logic and giving to the fallacies research programme much of its evolving character and emphasis. It is one of their principal contentions that the fallacies respond best to theoretical pluralism and that different analytical tools are needed for different fallacies.Again conveniently available in a single volume, these papers are indispensable reading for a new generation of researchers in informal logic, argumentation theory, critical thinking, computer science, linguistics and cognitive psychology.John Woods is also author of The Death of Argument: Fallacies in Agent-Based Reasoning 2005. Douglas Walton is author of A Pragmatic Theory of Fallacy 1995.
