- Recognising Tuvalu has insufficient space to continually rely on waste disposal and stockpiling, the Tuvalu Department of Waste Management (DWM) has recently implemented several initiatives to improve solid and hazardous waste management and reduce risks to their people and environment. Many of these initiatives have focused on the capital island, Funafuti - home to 50% of the population. The DWM now seeks to extend waste management initiatives to Tuvalu’s eight Outer Islands.
