Resumen

CALVA-ALEJO, Crescencio L  y  ROJAS-CALDELAS, Rosa I. Assessment of Municipal solid waste Management in the Municipality of Mexicali, Mexico: Challenges for Achieving Sustainable Planning. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.3, pp.59-72. ISSN 0718-0764.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642014000300009.

This work aims to evaluate the municipal management of urban solid wastes in the municipality of Mexicali, in Mexico through a sustainability framework. Urban areas are key issues for local governments since they are spaces whose production contributes significantly to the gross domestic product. At the same time, concentration of population in these areas and thereby increase of air, water and soil pollution are favored. The analysis included literature review, semi-structured interviews and participatory workshops, where information was grouped into three sections: legal and regulatory framework, best practices in sustainable management of urban solid wastes and municipal assessment. The overall balance shows advances in the legal aspects but regulations are poorly implemented. Also, it is needed to reinforce the development of research, market creation, monitoring, information and public participation.

Palabras clave : urban planning; sustainable management; urban solid wastes; municipal environmental management.
