Training Programme on Integrated Waste Management

With rapid urbanisation and rising consumption of goods and services, India is facing a massive waste management challenge. Every year, urban India produces 62 million tonne (MT) of municipal solid waste, 31 MT of which is dumped onto landfill sites. Figures for recycling are abysmal; for instance, only 1.5 per cent of e-waste is recycled. The need of the hour is to shift the focus of waste management towards processing and resource recovery.

Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI) recognises this need and offers this advanced five-days training programme on ‘integrated waste management’. The objective of the programme is to provide a better understanding of the key aspects of management of solid, plastic, bio-medical, construction & demolition (C&D), and electronic waste; the technologies involved in their treatment; the legislative framework; and the stakeholders involved.

CSE has been working on policy and implementation regarding waste management at the national and global levels. In 2016, the Centre published Not in My Backyard, a seminal report on the existing status of waste management in the country.
