An interesting look at the management of waste in developing countries. As a Waste Educator based in the UK this has significantly added to my knowledge of how waste is managed in LDCs. Thank you!
Best course I have ever enrolled in on coursera. This course contains excellent contents which are made with dedications. I am also glad to learn from a case study on my country, Bangladesh.
This has provided technical knowledge on waste management for developing countries. It would be great for this to broaden discussion on plastic waste management as this is a growing topic. Thank you!
