Feed-in tariffs (FITs) have been the most widely used government support mechanism for accelerating private investment in renewable energy generation. However, competitive tenders or auctions have also emerged in many jurisdictions as acceptable techniques, especially in emerging economies. In 2009, the South African government began exploring FITs for renewable energy, but they were rejected in 2011 in favor of competitive tenders. The resulting program, known as the...

    South Africa’s Good Waste Management Practises Toolkit

    Lessons learned

    The current poor state of waste service delivery by South African municipalities is a concern due to the potential impacts on human health and the environment.

Despite this rather discouraging situation, certain municipalities have managed to overcome some of these challenges and good waste management practices are to be found. This paper reports on the development of a Toolkit for municipal waste management service delivery, based on some of the good waste management practices currently implemented in different municipalities across all the...
