The flagship Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) 2.0, with its heavy focus on solid waste management, is being seen as a potential game-changer for India. The key mission agenda talks about making India “garbage-free”, with key components like remediation of legacy waste, and building infrastructure for treatment, processing, recovery, and recycling of municipal solid waste to divert 80 per cent of it from reaching the landfill by 2026.
A large number of 3000+ dumpsites in India have almost reached their waste-holding capacity, and cities are struggling to dispose of more waste in them. SBM 2.0 mandates the cities with less than 1 million population to clear legacy waste sites by 31 March 2023 and cities with more than 1 million population to remediate their dumpsites by 31 March 2024.
Capacity Building of city governments, regulators, state urban development authorities, academia, private sector, civil society organizations, startups, researchers, consultants and individual practitioners is critical to collectively achieve the mammoth target. The magnitude of the Mission creates space for every stakeholders to create an ecosystem to turn waste management services into business models for economic and environmental sustainability, which would be critical to the envisioned success of the Mission.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) is offering a tailor made fourdays residential training programme on integrated solid waste management. The high impact training is designed to provide an end-to-end solution to design and implement a robust system of managing solid waste aligned with the principle of circular economy
