This handbook is informed by the landscape assessment undertaken to determine the viability of a waste management infrastructure funding mechanism for SSEA countries and seeks to build upon the foundational information provided by Ocean Conservancy and others to develop a framework to channel investment into the waste management and recycling space.28 It provides the most substantial and practical information for prospective investors through a broad overview of the major trends and investment considerations of the SSEA countries included in the landscape assessment, alongside more detailed appraisals of India and Indonesia. We publish this handbook in the spirit of transparency and collaboration to encourage the participation of other investors in the SWM and recycling sector.
