In re­search­ing this is­sue of the mag­a­zine, we iden­ti­fied some com­mon steps that have been fac­tors in the suc­cess of waste in­no­va­tors in the global South.

Mak­ing wealth from waste isn’t as easy as it first seems and suc­cess­ful in­no­va­tors have thought about the soft­ware of their idea as well as the hard­ware of the so­lu­tion.
