This report presents a detailed methodological framework that can be used for the feasibility assessment of Resource Recovery and Reuse (RRR) business models in the context of developing countries. Its purpose is to support public and private sectors as well as investors in determining the potential viability of RRR in a particular location and context. The conceptual framework adopted a step-wise assessment of the implementation potential of RRR business models, consisting of three main phases: (a) prefeasibility study (baseline survey), (b) feasibility study, and (c) implementation planning.
