  • Product Description
 
The collapse of solid waste management efforts in urban cities of many developing countries is an important concern. This book dwells on shadow pricing of disposal and a sensitivity analysis on solid wastes disposed using the theory of the firm and focused in urban Kenya. Relative contributions and linear programming was used to determine the shadow prices. The results indicate the shadow prices of agricultural solid wastes disposal in the commercial and industrial sectors of Kenya was much higher than the actual disposal costs. The results indicate that about 32% of the solid wastes were agricultural solid wastes and that about 11% of it was being recovered for use elsewhere. Sensitivity analysis results indicate that specific policy instruments can be used to stimulate the process of recovery and utilization. This book recommends that an economic policy formulation towards the promotion of recovery and utilization be a priority area. This book is useful to urban authorities, public health authorities, conservationists, agricultural and resource economics students, environmental economics students and professionals in diverse fields of environmental studies.
