Sustainable consumption and production patterns: solid waste and governance challenge from local to global

Thais Maria Machado Lemos Ribeiro, Cristina Y A Inoue

Abstract


Solid waste has been growing at an exponential rate because of unsustainable production and consumption patterns. For that reason, it is considered a global issue both in the international political economy perspective and in local and global governance, with multiple actors and levels of analysis, highlighting waste pickers as relevant actors.



Keywords


Sustainable consumption and production patterns; international political economy; global governance.
