Software tool for Sustainable Waste Management Planning & Assessment

The scientific committee had evaluated environmental, economic and social indicator methodology. The individual member of the Scientific Committee and External Experts performed a peer review of the appropriateness of the approach chosen to solve to each the targets of the project. As it was positively evaluated, a software application was developed for the waste prognostic model and for computing of the Sustainability Indicators (Waste Prognostic Tool and Assessment tool).

The prognostic tool is a java interface and the assessment tool is a visual basic interface based on Excel modules, to ensure that a targeted user - a decision maker in a waste management department of a municipality can easily use them.

The targeted End-Users of this model are various actors involved in waste management planning and monitoring:
i) primarily, in the cities and regions with fast growing economies (for planning assessment and optimisation)
ii) secondly, in any other European regions (for monitoring, benchmarking and optimisation).

Namely, the target End-Users are:
- Municipalities and local/regional authorities responsible for spatial and waste management planning and development in cities
- Institutes and Consultancies developing or/and evaluating local waste management plans.
- Official and decision makers who verify the proposed developed strategies for waste management in cities and regions.
