Guidelines for disaster waste management developed by the Swedish Contingency Agency (MSB) and UNOCHA

February 1, 2011
The guidelines concern solid waste management after disasters for example rubble and hospital waste. There are guidelines for some types of waste management already but often this is done without coordination and planning.  Therefore MSB has together with UN OCHA developed advice to managing disaster waste.
MSB was also in 2010 requested by UNDP to deploy a team of experts to Haiti to look at the disaster waste management.
More info on the Disaster Waste Management Guidelines will be published here when they are available.
