Urbanisation, technological advancement and economic growth have together resulted in an exponential increase in waste generation, creating health and environmental hazards, and posing a threat to the human race. As per the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), urban India generates 145,352 metric tonne of waste every day. A majority of the cities are grappling with the challenges that arise due to lack of source segregation and disposal of mixed waste.
Waste is not produced in a vacuum; it is an offshoot of human activities.Therefore, understanding human behavior and developing approaches to deal with it is the key to minimise, manage and process solid waste in an efficient manner. Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites applications for an online course on Strategies to Develop a Framework for IEC-BCC (Information, Education and Communication-Behavior Change Communication), that can propel and encourage source segregation and home composting -- with a special emphasis on Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (the 3R principle).
The five days’ comprehensive training will not only provide an insight into the status, challenges and implementation strategies of waste segregation at source in India, but also help understand planning, designing, and implementing appropriate IEC-BCC strategies to achieve sustainable solid waste management.
