African nations -- including Tanzania – manage to scientifically treat only a small segment of the waste that they generate. Burning and dumping of the waste are common practices, leading to greenhouse gas emissions, and pollution of surface water, groundwater, land and air; the resultant threat to public health and environment is immense.
The need of the hour is to promote source segregation to treat the waste streams separately -- more for the biodegradable waste, which is nearly or more than half of the total quantum of waste generated. Source segregation and home composting practices also need to be promoted institutionally by the city governments to reinforce circularity and for ensuring economically, socially and environmentally sustainable waste management systems.
ustainable waste management systems. As part of its collaboration with the people, government and agencies of Tanzania, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites city officials and urban managers from Tanzania to an exclusive threeday online training programme on Source Segregation and Home Composting. The objective of the programme is to provide a better understanding of the critical aspects of the management of solid waste through source segregation and composting of biodegradable waste at the household level.
