WORM is built on 11 Work Packages (WP).
Each of them is designed to maximize the expected results.

The project is structured over 3 phases

Prioritisation (M1-M6)
Phase 1
Scoping exercise of commonly used product groups that could qualify for seeking bio-based alternative solutions, a waste stream analysis of field hospital settings, and collecting procurement practices.
Prioritisation (M1-M6)
Evaluation of alternatives (M7-M12)
Phase 2
Sustainability assessment of bio-based solutions to be integrated into procurement processes, analysis of local innovations in waste management and policy recommendations for their scaling up.
Evaluation of alternatives (M7-M12)
Policy & implementation (M13-M24)
Phase 3
Implementation of alternatives through the development of standard operational procedures (SOPs) for the use, reuse and transfer options of field hospitals. Examination of waste management from a socio-economic perspective (livelihoods, safety and hygiene of waste pickers). Assessment of the limits and consequences of introducing bio-based solutions in the humanitarian context.
Policy & implementation (M13-M24)
