Selection criteria for a strategic framework for waste management decision making


Selection Criteria for a methodology for the sustainability assessment of waste management and technology options include:

Strategically, the framework should:



  1. Meet the stated objectives of the new National Waste Policy;

  2. Provide for innovation in accordance with Innovation Agenda for the 21st Century set by the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research;

  3. Be based on appropriate application of best practice assessment methods; and

  4. Require detailed analysis only as necessary not as a prerequisite to decision making.

Operationally, the detailed assessment framework should provide:

  1. Transparency of data, assumptions and gaps so that the basis for differentiating between technologies follows a clear, objective and traceable process;

  2. Robustness and therefore reproducibility of results so that when applied by different users, the same set of proposals are assessed with similar outcomes;

  3. Simplicity and should be meaningful to a wide audience and easy to understand;

  4. Embrace and enhance community participation processes by providing transparency to options and facilitating informed decision making; and

  5. Results that are readily used but that may be examined in detail.
