Following the previously published Guidelines for City managers the technical partners of the project, in this case IAU-IDF/ORDIF, prepared another crucial output which has the aim to enure replication of the URBAN-WASTE eco-innovative measures and help city managers and policy makers improve certain processes in tourism.
While the Guidelines which elaborately describes tourism’s impact on waste management and gives general guidelines for the identification of major potentials for improvements and the development of eco-innovative measures, these 22 factsheets perfectly accompany these processes. Being developed at the very end of the project they also reflect all the learning points the 11 pilot cities and regions experiences, including challenges and failures and not only successes and achievements.
They all have a universal layout and structure in order to make it easy for the reader to understand and compare them. The forms are divided in two categories, one targeting waste prevention and the other trying to improve existing waste management practices. Each measure form consists of the description and the scope of the measure and its integration in an existing waste management plan. It also describes and focuses on economic aspects to consider (costs, cost savings, revenues) and potential solutions for the financing of the measure. The type of stakeholders to involve to implement the measure and the description of the operational steps to be followed to implement the measure are also included in the form in order to facilitate the deployment of the particular measure. The forms are also enriched by examples of good practices similar to the measure and already existing, a set of indicators to assess and monitor the performance of the measure and guidelines to use those indicators and lessons learnt from the implementation phase and fine tuning of the same measures withint he URBAN-WASTE project’s framwework.
The collection of these factsheets is enriched by 11 “Pilot Forms”, another 11 factsheets which report on the implementation phase of the previously mentioned eco-innovative measures in the project’s 11 pilot cities and regions and their experience, achievements and challenges faced during the implemntation phase.
