Professor David C Wilson has been a prolific author throughout his career. However, as a commercial consultant for more than 30 years, many of his reports for clients are in the ‘grey’ literature – more recently much of this, at least for public sector clients, has been made available on the web. Some of his work has been referenced throughout this website, while a select publication list is included in his CV. This page gives access both to recent publications and also to some older work.

Professor David C Wilson led the team preparing the ISWA/ UNEP/ Basel Convention’s Training Resource Pack for hazardous waste management in developing economies.
This ‘train the trainers’ toolkit is the culmination of 8 year’s work by the partner organisations, and 20 year’s work by DCW. The TRP won ISWA’s 2003 Publication Award for the best publication in waste management worldwide, and was the basis for DCW being awarded the prestigious J. W. Starkey Silver Medal of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health in 2004. A Spanish translation of the TRP is also available.
