We have compiled data on municipal solid waste (MSW) related to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indicator 11.6.1 ("Proportion of municipal solid waste collected and managed in controlled facilities out of total municipal waste generated, by cities"), and built a database on municipal solid waste management in the Asia-Pacific Region (DaMSAR). The database would be relevant for policymakers and practitioners who are involved in monitoring progress on improving MSW management. The initial set of data has been extracted from the reports (published in and after 2011) of the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) projects which have been conducted in 18 countries in the Asia-Pacific Region.
