Training Workshop on Integrated Municipal Solid Waste Management
14 Nov 2011
18 Nov 2011
Mexico City, Mexico
Latin America and the Caribbean is the most urbanized developing region of the planet. 75% of its population lives in urban areas. This dynamic is a major challenge in the provision of comprehensive services for the management of municipal solid waste (MSW). Services that are tailored to local realities, that are sustainable from the points of view of health, environment and economics, and that are socially inclusive.
The region needs clean cities that promote integrated management of their MSW. This course aims to train professionals who can face this challenge. For them, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Technological Institute of Monterrey and the Water Center for Latin America and the Caribbean have joined forces to meet an unmet demand for training on Integrated Management of MSW through which professionals from across the region will develop skills allowing them to develop proposals and plans for proper management of waste in their areas of action.
The course modules will be taught by recognized professionals from the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), Columbia University and government entities in the region.
