Abstract
The efficiency and organizational issues of Uzbekistan’s waste management system (WMS) have led to challenging new ecological and environmental problems for the main cities and industrial zones of the country. This thesis highlights practical policy and technology reforms that could ameliorate this situation through a comparative case study with the successful WMS model South Korea. Using archival research and semi-structured interview methods, this thesis underscores current structural and organizational challenges of the Uzbek WMS while offering realistic solutions based on South Korean WMS protocols. Detailed research reveals that three main policies turned the Korean model from one of the worst WMS systems to the one of most efficient and effective systems of the World. The conclusions of this research reveal that Volume-Based-Waste-Fee (VBWF) system, the next is Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) System and the last one is expansion of waste treatment facilities. With these findings, I suggest WMS reforms to the Uzbek government.
