Rebalancing Waste Management Governance in Cities with Informal Systems: Engaging Local Stakeholders and Academics through Transdisciplinary Research

The recent LIRA 2030 Africa reports highlight the impressive efforts of 28 research leaders in driving sustainable development across African cities. One particular project titled "Cleaning from the bottom up" showcases the use of inclusive stakeholder participation in integrated waste management in Accra (Ghana) and Lagos (Nigeria).

Cycling towards sustainable development

On World Bicycle Day, we take a look at some recent studies on how cycling can contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and a new initiative from the United Nations to increase the use of bikes for human and planetary health and wellbeing.
