Rapid urbanization has created a major challenge with regard to waste management and environmental protection. However, the problem can be ameliorated by turning organic waste into compost for use as an agricultural fertilizer in peri-urban areas. This is especially significant in less
developed countries, where food security is also a key issue. This book addresses these subjects and is based on papers presented at a workshop held in Ghana by IBSRAM and FAO. Special reference is given to Sub-Saharan Africa, with acknowledgement to experiences from other parts of the world.
Contributing authors are from several European, as well as African, countries.
