Waste Management in India and Experience with the Implementation of Projects Based on Public Private Partnership Model
© TK Verlag - Fachverlag für Kreislaufwirtschaft (9/2016)
Decades of improper Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Management has resulted in the creation of huge dumpsites in cities. These dumpsites are causing considerable environmental pollution and are full to capacity in most cities. Land for new disposal sites is not easily available due to increasing urbanization and population pressure. In many cases there is considerable protest from surrounding villages for setting up of a new MSW disposal site.

Less Ice, More Talk: The Benefits and Burdens for Arctic Communities of Consultations Concerning Development Activities
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (6/2012)
The Arctic Ocean is rapidly losing summer sea ice, opening opportunities for economic development such as commercial shipping, mining, and oil and gas development. These activities entail the risk of cultural, social, and environmental impacts. In the United States and Canada, consultation processes have developed to give local residents a voice in assessing potential impacts and consequent decisions concerning development activities. In Greenland, consultation procedures are being developed as part of a larger environmental impact assessment system. The experience from Alaska and Canada shows that management decisions that incorporate a consultation process are preferable to decisions being made elsewhere with little or no local input. At the same time, current U.S. and Canadian consultation processes require a great deal of time and effort, and the influence of local input on final decisions is often unclear. We review examples from Alaska, the Northwest Territories, and Greenland, and find that two assessments are warranted. First, the burdens of consultation on local communities should be evaluated. Second, the degree to which local input influences final decisions should be examined, in part to determine whether the effort expended is worthwhile. In both cases, a key result of the assessment should be recommendations for improved practices to make clear how local input is used.

Public vs. Private Water Utilities: PBSCs and PPPs used for financial sustainability
© Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (6/2009)
A public-private partnership (PPP) scheme is a “product providing tool” becoming more and more popular worldwide due to the inability of the public sector to finance a number of projects. In developing countries the implementation of PPPs is crucial especially in the water supply sector. The projects have to do with the reduction of NRW and the provision of better water supply services. Several problems concerning the implementation of PPP and PBSC projects are discussed. The present paper is a review paper discussing a number of key success factors identified for the Public Private Partnerships (PPP) and the Performance Based Service Contracts (PBSC) based in previous studies concerning their successful implementation.

One of the possible solutions to this problem which has been identified by a number of municipalities, and which either has been implemented, or is being considered, is the use of Public Private Partnership contractual arrangement with private contractors as a means of addressing the waste management service delivery.
