Training Programme on Integrated Waste Management Date: January 8-12, 2018

With rapid urbanisation and rising incomes, India is facing a massive waste management challenge. Urban population of India generates 62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste per annum. Only 43 million tonnes (MT) of the waste is collected, 11.9 MT is treated and 31 MT is dumped in landfill sites. India generates about 1.7 million tonnes of electronic waste and only 1.5% of the total e-waste generated is recycled. Biomedical waste generation is about 484 tonnes per day. It is the need of the hour that focus of waste management shifts to processing and resource recovery.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) recognises this need and is organizing an advanced five-day training programme on “Integrated Waste Management”. The objective of the programme is to get a better understanding of main features of the management of Solid, Plastic, Bio-medical, E-waste and C&D waste, the technologies involved in their treatment, the key legislative frameworks and the stakeholders involved.
