Econometric Modelling of Solid Waste Generation in Jordan

Veronika Alhanaqtah


The objective of this study is to develop an econometric model that might help decision-makers to imply better policies based on the information about key factors influencing the amount of waste generation in Jordan. We found out that the most informative factor is the level of consumption which is correlated with the number of population and gross national income. Consumption culture itself rather than the population growth stimulates waste production. In order to reduce the level of waste generation, it is necessary to move from an unreasonable culture of unrestrained consumption to a reasonable and responsible attitude to the resources of the country and the environment as a whole. It is also necessary to introduce modern waste management methods, develop technologies for waste recycling and reuse.
