Shades of informality: Working with waste pickers in ARISE

Part of the ARISE work in India is steered through the George Institute for Global Health, India. It is focused on ‘waste pickers and waste picking communities’ which represent urban informality at its most marginal. The work aims to understand and describe how accountability arrangements can be strengthened for people living and working in informal urban spaces in order to improve equitable health and well-being. India’s informal waste economy consists of socially, occupationally, and economically differentiated categories of ‘waste people’ – an integral part of the ‘waste-to-resource’ value chain.
