STEP Chair Anu Ramaswami's Comparative Case Study Appeared in Waste Management Research

"Ramaswami et al., 2016, Exploring social and infrastructural factors affecting open burning of municipal solid waste (MSW) in Indian cities: A comparative case study of three neighborhoods of Delhi" Appeared in Waste Management Research

In this study we have uncovered social and infrastructural factors that affect MSW-burning at the neighborhood level in Delhi. We couple physical assessments of the infrastructure provision and the MSW-burning incidences in three different neighborhoods of varying socio-economic status in Delhi, with an accompanying study of the social actors (interviews of waste handlers and households) to explore the extent to which, and potential reasons why, MSW-burning occurs.
