The implementation of the National Waste Management Strategy (NWMS 2010) and National Environmental Management Waste Act (NEMWA 2008) facilitates a paradigm shift over the philosophy and strategy of solid and hazardous waste management. The new paradigm requires us to look at solid waste and refuse as valuable resource rather than a waste as implied by the common meaning of the word. The course explores strategies to get the best out of refuse.

To analyse spatially allows the statistician to incorporate the spatial correlation present in many datasets, without which model interpretation may be incorrect. There is a wealth of knowledge on spatial statistics within South Africa, the research field of spatial statistics is still relatively young and much expert guidance is required to build the field in terms of research as well as training. Spatial statistics has very important applications in the South African context.
