Abstract/Summary: The aim of this paper is to outlines the growing waste management problem in Sudan. Rapid urbanization and changing consumption patterns, solid waste management (SWM) has become a major challenge in most urban centres in Sudan, particularly the larger ones. Therefore it is critical to adopt a holistic approach in developing a working framework for SWM which matches the waste hierarchy. The paper argues that the current focus of waste management in Sudan is still on collection and disposal of waste and therefore modern techniques and proper waste management strategies are needed. The paper concludes with different recommendations for future policy directions in the Sudan.
