The chapter explores the translation of global narratives of waste management formulated by UN-Habitat into local waste practices in the Managua in Nicaragua. In the chapter, excerpts of two documents produced by UN-Habitat related to a sustainable waste management are analysed. Inspired by deconstruction methods, the author traces how, why and by whom these narratives have been translated, and which ones have been stabilized as the predominant narratives in the discourse of a sustainable waste management.

Keywords:   Waste management, translation, global narratives, deconstruction, UN-Habitat, Nicaragua
