Toolkit: Waste Flow Diagram (WFD): A rapid assessment tool for mapping waste flows and quantifying plastic leakage. Version 1.0.

, , &
The Waste Flow Diagram toolkit is an excel-based model allowing users to perform a rapid assessment of municipal solid waste flows within a city or municipality. The tool maps these waste flows using Sankey diagrams and quantifies the plastic waste that is emitted from the solid waste management system and its eventual fate in the environment. The toolkit is specifically designed to integrate with SDG 11.6.1 by informing on the sub-indicators, and can be operated...

User Manual: Waste Flow Diagram (WFD): A rapid assessment tool for mapping waste flows and quantifying plastic leakage. Version 1.0

, , &
The Waste Flow Diagram user manual provides an explanation of the Waste Flow Diagram toolkit and in-depth guidance on how to apply it. This includes information on data collection issues, how to estimate plastic leakages, how to run scenarios, and how to visualise the waste flows.

On-line Training Package: Part1/2: Waste Flow Diagram (WFD): A rapid assessment tool for mapping waste flows and quantifying plastic leakage

, , &
Part 1 of 2 - the “Introduction to the Waste Flow Diagram” video explains the rationale toolkit, as well as providing guidance on how the tool simply visualises solid waste management systems and waste flows. In addition, the video further advises on how the toolkit quantifies plastic waste leakages, what the data requirement are and explains the unique link between the Waste Flow Diagram and the Sustainable Development Goal 11.6.1 - Proportion of urban solid...

On-line Training Package: Part2/2: Waste Flow Diagram (WFD): A rapid assessment tool for mapping waste flows and quantifying plastic leakage.

, , &
Part 2 of 2 – This video entitled “Applying the Waste Flow Diagram” provides a technical explanation behind two of the critical methods within the Waste Flow Diagram toolkit – quantifying plastic leakage, and determining the fate of this plastic leakage in the environment. This is illustrated using the example of a dumpsite.
