dc.description.abstract[Introduction]The process of collecting and developing the data required for the production of Evaluation 2002 for St. Kitts and Nevis was carried out by a PAHO representative in conjunction with the Chief Environmental Health Officer (Ministry of Health and the Environment), the General Manager, St. Kitts and Nevis Solid Waste Management Corporation and the Manager, Nevis Solid Waste Management Authority. Additional assistance was received from the Planning Section of the St. Kitts Ministry of Finance, the St. Kitts Department of Tourism, the St. Kitts Ministry of Finance, the Nevis Ministry of Finance, the Office of the Permanent Secretary, St. Kitts Ministry of Health and the Environment and the Nevis Public Health Department. The overall management of solid waste in St. Kitts is controlled by the St. Kitts and Nevis Solid Waste Management Corporation (SWMC). The Government established this statutory body some time ago and transferred all responsibility for solid waste collection and disposal to it at the end of 2001. At the time of transfer, it was intended that a single body control both St. Kitts and Nevis but subsequent events have led to the development of a separate body responsible for Nevis alone. This body is the Nevis Solid Waste Management Authority (SWMA). The structure of both bodies is highly similar although the methods of operation differ slightly. St. Kitts and Nevis tend to act as independent countries - and, in fact, this may become a reality after the next general elections. In the interim, there is some difficulty in separating certain aspects of the questionnaire as it relates to the overall solid waste situation in both St. Kitts and Nevis. Insofar as possible, the difficulties are noted in this Country Analytical Report.en_US
