Dr. Ljiljana Rodić - Cycle of seminars on solid waste management in developed and developing countries

pubblicato 14 mag 2018, 03:53 da Giovanni Vinti

We are pleased to announce updated calendar of seminars of Ljiljana Rodić, visiting professor at DICACIM, University of Brescia (Via Branze 43 - Brescia), in May 2018. 


22 May 2018 - 9:30 - 12:30 (Room B1.1):  
Non-technological aspects of effective solid waste management, with focus on developed countries

23 May 2018 - 9:30 - 12:30 (Room B2.4): 
Non-technical aspects of solid waste management in developing countries for the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Brief presentation of the seminars

Non-technological aspects of effective solid waste management, with focus on developed countries
Modern urban waste management systems are the product of a gradual learning process and developments in both technologies and governance that were initiated centuries ago. This interactive seminar focuses on the governance aspects, including various policy instruments and discussing how they have impacted the development of technologies. There will be an exercise for participants to develop recommendations on policy instruments in selected case studies.

Non-technical aspects of solid waste management in developing countries for the UN Sustainable Development Goals
Together with technologies, appropriate policies are essentially important for development of solid waste management systems. Starting from the specific realities of the developing countries, this interactive seminar focuses on governance aspects – and their interplay with appropriate technologies – that need to be addressed in order to support developing countries in achieving the UN Sustainable development Goals related to waste management in urban settlements.

Brief presentation of Dr. Ljiljana Rodić
Dr. Ljiljana Rodić is a Senior Researcher at Leiden University, the Netherlands. She has over 25 years of international experience in scientific research, academic education and capacity building in urban environmental management and sustainable use of resources, with prizes for her publications from the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) and the UK Institution of Civil Engineers. In her research Ljiljana has explored various issues related to urban solid waste management, with particular focus on the interplay between technology and governance in diverse local realities around the world.
Ljiljana has worked for UNEP and UN-HABITAT, including the 2015 “Global Waste Management Outlook” and 2017 advisory work on definitions and methodology for monitoring of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 related to services in urban settlements. She is an expert evaluator of research proposals to the executive agencies of the European Commission, DANIDA and Swiss National Science Foundation.
Never hesitating to literally roll up her sleeves, Ljiljana has organised and carried out a practical action on waste prevention with her students, cooking a meal for over 500 people from vegetables that would have otherwise ended up as waste.

Seminario su SDG 6: Acqua pulita e servizi igienico-sanitari

Seminario su SDG 6: Acqua pulita e servizi igienico-sanitari


Lunedì 5 febbraio 2018 alle ore 17:30 si svolgerà il seminario dal titolo: "SDG 6: Acqua pulita e servizi igienico-sanitari", tenuto da Christian Zurbrügg, Sabrina Sorlini e Francesco Donato. 

Presso il Ridotto del Teatro Grande, corso Zanardelli 9a - Brescia

Garantire a tutti la disponibilità e la gestione sostenibile dell'acqua e delle strutture igienico-sanitarie.

Sesto obiettivo per il ciclo di seminari dell’Università degli Studi di Brescia sui 17 Obiettivi di Sviluppo Sostenibile: garantire a tutti la disponibilità e la gestione sostenibile dell'acqua e delle strutture igienico-sanitarie.

Nel 2015, più del 90% della popolazione del Pianeta ha utilizzato fonti di acqua potabile protette e 4,9 miliardi di cittadini hanno avuto accesso a una rete più sicura di servizi igienico-sanitari. Tuttavia, oltre 2 miliardi di persone vivono sotto stress idrico. I traguardi della nuova agenda mondiale mirano ad ottenere l’accesso universale ed equo ad acqua potabile sicura per tutti e a servizi igienico-sanitari adeguati ed equi per tutti, a migliorare la qualità dell'acqua riducendo l'inquinamento da prodotti chimici, a contenere la quantità di acque reflue non trattate, e a proteggere e ripristinare gli ecosistemi legati all'acqua e attuare la gestione integrata delle risorse idriche a tutti i livelli. Raggiungere l'accesso universale alle strutture igienico-sanitarie di base e all’acqua potabile richiederà una notevole accelerazione dello sviluppo economico e tecnologico, in particolare nelle aree rurali dell'Asia centrale e meridionale, dell'Asia orientale e sud-orientale e dell'Africa sub-sahariana.

Il ciclo di seminari si rivolge alla cittadinanza e alla comunità universitaria con l’intento di esaminare ogni singolo Obiettivo di Sviluppo Sostenibile della nuova agenda mondiale, indirizzata alla comunità nella sua interezza, per un’azione comune finalizzata al benessere, da coniugare con la preservazione del pianeta a vantaggio delle generazioni presenti e future.
