There were 10 nominations for the ISWA Publication Award 2013 and the judges found great difficulty in determining an overall winner due to the top-class level of and wide variety of subject matter covered by these submissions. However, a clear winner emerged when the panel was forced to make its overall choice.
The winner of the ISWA Publication Award 2013 is:
by Costas Velis et al, published in WM&R, 30(9) Supplement, pages 43-66, Sept. 2012
The panel believes that this paper addresses an important area of waste management in developing countries, i.e. the informal recycling sector; and that it offers a practical framework for designing successful initiatives to integrate the informal sector into formal waste management systems.
