Abstract

This thesis was an exploration into the implementation process in developing country cities. Western debates on implementation are usually not applicable in developing country cities and the question asked was why. The main reason has been found is that the characteristics of governments and people in developing country cities are different and therefore different approaches are required to make implementation successful. Of particular interest is waste management. Different approaches are employed in the management of waste in some developing country cities and the results have been mediocre with no real impact on the urban environment. To this end, this thesis set out to understand implementation within these cities. In the course of this research, some very interesting factors were discovered about policy implementation in developing country cites. It is hoped that this thesis has been able to add to the body of knowledge in understanding implementation in developing country cities.
