Pollution and Waste Production in Home-Based Enterprises in Developing Countries: Perceptions and Realities

Buy Article:

$53.00 + tax (Refund Policy)

Using mainly qualitative data from a four country case study, this paper describes the nature of home-based enterprises (HBEs) and the wastes that they produce. It finds that most only generate material similar to domestic wastes, but in greater quantities. While some are undoubtedly generating dangerous wastes, they are only a small proportion of all HBEs and tend to be aware of at least some of the problem and take mitigating steps. The paper argues that the encouragement of clean processes should replace the usual negative views about HBEs that are held by policy makers.
