Gestion des déchets et inégalités environnementales et écologiques à Lima : entre durabilité et vulnérabilité.

Abstract : Waste management (of solid waste and residual waters) in major Latin American cities often is implemented to the detriment of the most vulnerable populations. They have less easy access than others to collection services and they are more frequently exposed to the nuisances of waste collected in the other parts of the city. While these cities, like Lima in Peru, have greatly improved their waste management over the last few decades, inequalities continue to be significant. They are “environmental inequalities” when referring to the reception of “good” and “bad” environmental aspects, or as “ecological inequalities” when one takes into account the inhabitants' ecological footprints. In any case, these two inequalities are mutually reinforced and often place this same population at a disadvantage. These inequalities can be interpreted through the prism of risk transfer and vulnerability differentials, which if more taken into account could permit the improvement of waste management in the lessening of vulnerabilities at different scales and the move towards increased sustainability.
