The objective of the work package 4 is the development of eco-innovative and collectively-based waste prevention and management strategies for touristic cities. The idea of this guideline for local policy makers is to provide them with some inputs related to European and national regulation so that they are aware of the legal frameworks on waste management at their local scale. In fact, even if the European regulation is a common legislative framework for all the member states to conduct their national waste management policies, every country has its own specificities that lead to specific strategies in terms of waste management. This guideline can be used as separated forms for seven different themes: avoiding waste production; reuse and prevention; avoiding litter; sorting into different fractions and recycling; biowaste and food waste; used cooking oils and environmental certifications. Those forms aim to describe all the national regulation on those themes so that local stakeholders can get legal tools to implement and support the proposed URBAN-WASTE measures on waste management at their local scale. Moreover, economical guidelines have also been developed through that deliverable. They aim to make local stakeholders aware of the costs and saving costs generated by the measures implementation at their local scale; and can be used as decision making tools locally. Indeed saving costs can be used as convincing arguments for local stakeholders regarding the interest of the measures implementation. Besides, for the measures proposed by the URBAN-WASTE project, a business model has been developed in order to identify the relevant information to implement such a measure at local scale: timeline to implement the measure; barriers; success factors; main stakeholders to involve; supportive policy actions; financial inputs; monitoring; impact on policies, etc. This work on business models has been completed with the proposition of a common financial balance template that can be used by local policy makers as a tool to support the implementation of the measures.
