Proportion of urban solid waste collected periodically and with an adequate final discharge with respect to the total urban solid waste generated, by cities (SDG indicator 11.6.1).

In order to generate the proportion of urban solid waste regularly collected and that is adequately discharged
out of all the total urban waste generated by the city, there is a need to define the two components that are
core to this indicator i.e. what constitutes urban waste and appropriate final discharge.
A two stage process is proposed for computing this indicator. First, cities will have to monitor the total
waste generated by the city. Out of this tonnage, they will have to compute the proportion of the waste
that was regularly collected from the various sources that generate city waste.
Solid waste regularly collected = Summation in tonnes of all regularly collected waste for all sources.
Total Solid waste = Sum of all waste generated by the city or urban area including collected
and uncollected solid waste
At the second stage, cities will have to estimate the proportion of all waste that was regularly collected
and was adequately discharged.
Adequately discharged solid waste= Regularly collected Solid waste that is reported as adequately
Solid waste regularly collected and with adequate final dischraged =100[ ((Adequately discharged
urban solid waste)/(total tonnage of waste generated by the city)) ]

Priority Measures

A.5 - Sustainable development for human well-being

Pursue sustainable development as a means of securing now and in the future human well-being for all peoples on an equitable basis, and ensuring that the linkages between population, resources, the environment and development are fully recognized, appropriately administered and maintained in a harmonious and dynamic balance with a thriving biodiversity and healthy ecosystems

G.76 - Territorial management

Develop more closely coordinated, integrated and cohesive territories by designing and executing territorial and urban management plans, policies and instruments, administered in a participatory manner and based on a people-centred approach with a gender and human rights perspective and a vision of sustainability and environmental risk management.

G.77 - Territories promoting the development and well-being of people

Promote the development and well-being of people in all territories without any form of discrimination, and provide full access to basic social services and equal opportunities for populations whether they live in urban or rural areas, in small, intermediate or large cities or in isolated areas or small rural settlements.

G.80 - Land use planning and environmental sustainability

Formulate development strategies for city systems to encompass territorial planning and environmental sustainability, promoting energy transition and sustainable production and consumption processes, taking into consideration social and environmental externalities, within a human rights framework, in order to promote sustainable and inclusive urban development, and strengthen all segments of such systems, including intermediate and small cities.
G. Territory and internal migration
