Author: Elsadig, Hala; Yassin, Kamal Eldin Eltayeb; Elseory,Mohamed
Abstract: The objective of this research is to present a conceptual model for Solid Waste Management (SWM) through the utilization of key performance indicators (KPIs) in order to quantify the general observations of having unclean state with its negative impacts on the environment and health of citizens in Khartoum State. This paper presents a method for development of composite Solid Waste Management Index (SWMI) that addresses the performance of SWM along the seven groups of SWM: collection & transport, Environment, Awareness, Final disposal, Finance, Policy & management plans, and institutional. The index is formed by aggregation (summation) of KPIs. The weights of the indicators were established by Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). The 2013 data was used to evaluate SWMI. SWMI result was 0.0999 (in a scale from 0 to 1). This study demonstrates that SWMI is a simple and robust tool to assess and compare SWM performance
