Panel Discussion Waste management Waste to wealth
Panel Discussion Waste management Waste to wealth
This day marked the closing of an entire week dedicated to workshops, panel discussions and field trips, in order to increase level of awareness among both the public and politicians. More than 20 countries were represented as well as many experts coming from all over the world to share experiences and bring our attention to the waste’s value chain. Waste management is an important part of the urban infrastructure as it ensures the protection of the environment and of human health.
The Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Regional Programme Energy Security and Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa supported a panel discussion on clean energy topics. Energy has become to many African countries a real challenge. 
Some recommendations made that day were as follows:
 
  • citizen implication to the promotion of civic behavior;
  • more coherence in the national waste policies elaboration;
  • legal framework, its implementation and enforcement need to be improved.
