Urban Waste

First of all, I would like to wish a belated happy new year to all IGLUS Quarterly readers. The year 2020 was a very tough year for all of us because of the pandemic, disasters and so on. We had to change our social lives to a new normal. However, I believe 2021 will bring us lots of new hopes and happiness, so that we can all leave the post-effects of 2020 behind.

In this first issue of the year, we will be discussing problems associated with urban waste with articles from experts from different parts of the world. We will try to understand what the previous mistakes were, what we must do to deal with the huge amount of wastes in cities, and what the current efforts of city governments are.

We sincerely hope that you can enjoy the articles on this urban waste issue in IGLUS Quarterly. We invite you to join the discussion at iglus.org. If you feel there are innovative practices underway in your city/region and you would like to contribute to an upcoming edition of IGLUS Quarterly, we encourage you to contact us at umut.tuncer@iglus.org
