For waste management my class is doing Curitiba as a case study.
- 2010 Global Sustainable City Award
- Population: 20 million
- Site and Service schemes, government offers loans on the land and free house design for the people. Residents trained to build the houses and make up a large part of the labour force. The houses have electricity, sewerage and running water.
- Recycled waste since the late 1980's
- Green Exchange
You can also use Curitiba for Transport Management and Sustainable Planning. They have the BRT system: cheap fares, 2 million travellers per day.
I think we also used London for transport management and looked at the tube and then there's Shanghai and the Maglev train system.
Hope that helps.
