Abstract: For policymakers in the area of integrated solid waste management (ISWM) planning, it is important and extremely helpful to have a decision support tool that helps to understand the processes and factors guiding system behaviour and observed phenomena. This model should include social behaviour model explaining individual?s motivation in environmental behaviour but also macro processes such as that of waste flow and processing systems as well as measure the overall environmental impact. Consequently, such a model can help to identify effective leverage points and provide a platform to discuss policies taking into account environmental, economic, and social aspects. This thesis develops a hybrid modelling approach built upon classical system dynamics methodology to derive a simulation model that can be used as such a decision support tool. The methodology is applied to model a case study, ISWM Singapore and scenarios were built to simulate key outcomes and strategies.
