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.
