Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Environmental Sciences, University of Saint Joseph (CENTER FOR RESEARCH IN ENVIRONMENTAL & HEALTH SCIENCE ), course: Governance, language: English, abstract: Empirical studies have shown that the rapid growth and development of the Macau economy did not only improve the standard of living of the local citizens, but also brought a change in their consumption behavior leading to a high level of solid wastes generation. With a limited land resource and growing population, the government of Macau and local waste management companies are currently faced with the challenge of managing the growing volume of solid wastes generated by the local population. It is therefore the focus of this study to identify and examine the barriers to effective solid waste management in Macau.
