The connections Engelman draws between opportunity for women and sustainable population are at once commonsensical and inspired.   Solid waste management can also be facilitated by diverting organic wastes from landfills or dumps and converting them to compost. Of tons of solid waste thrown out by New York City each day, some 20 to 40 percent is organic matter. Composting such material could reduce disposal costs and provide rich soil for urban agriculture.
