By 2050, the world is expected to generate 3.72 billion tons of waste annually, increasing drastically from today’s 2.16 billion tons. What a Waste looks at national and urban data on waste management worldwide to draw key trends globally. The publication provides a snapshot on how waste management varies across income levels and regions and highlights good practices globally. By understanding key challenges and solutions, cities can better plan for their local circumstances, and citizens and governments around the world can take action to address this urgent problem.

This publication builds on the previous World Bank publication entitled What a Waste: A Global Review of Solid Waste Management. The current edition of What a Waste expands on the type of data collected and includes nearly all countries and economies and 372 cities. The data are updated to recent years, and the waste generation data are scaled to a single year to allow for cross-comparison across cities and countries. The projections for waste generation use the most comprehensive database to date to determine how waste generation dynamically changes economic development and population growth.
