What direction should India's waste management take? What does the future hold in store? Are landfills the answer? Is Waste-to-energy technology still a good bet? Why segregation is the key? These are some of the questions that come to our minds when we discuss waste management in our country.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi is conducting a day long workshop on Solid Waste Management to discuss the scenario of waste management in the country.
We have been to some of the cleanest cities across the country and have rated them. The system for rating cities was to determine who is the cleanest of them all in terms of solid waste management. It is clear that cities that are segregating their waste have been able to effectively process and treat it and have achieved the status of zero landfill cities. While, some cities are doing - part segregation and part treatment. And then, there are a few cities, that are visibly clean but dumping their waste. We have incorporated all our findings in our book: ‘Not in My Backyard’ due to release on 11th July, 2016, Jacaranda Hall, Indian Habitat Centre, New Delhi.
The workshop shall discuss the current status of waste management in India, the new rules, available technologies, municipal finances and expenditure, role of informal sector, CSE’s city survey and the best cities along with agenda for the future.
The workshop shall have important panel discussions and sharing of best practices across the country in solid waste management. The workshop is ideal for regulators, practitioners, consultants, academicians and NGOs working in solid waste management.
