Organized by: International Solid Waste Association, supported by Ecomondo Scientific Technical Committee

In 2015, the Global Waste Management Outlook (GWMO) provided a scientific global assessment on the state of waste management and a call for action to the international community. The GWMO estimated at that time that 2 billion people worldwide lacked access to a basic waste collection service, while around 3 billion lacked access to controlled disposal services for municipal solid wastes.

Where are we now? Recently ISWA launched the report: The Future of The Waste Management Sector: Trends, Opportunities and Challenges for the Decade, which highlights the key issues around the transition to a circular economy, the role waste management will play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and combatting climate change.

During this conference several experts will speak on how they see the future of global waste management both worldwide as in Mediterranean countries.
In the last hour we will focus on an important topic of sustainable waste management, organic waste recycling in Mediterranean countries. An interesting panel from and several experts will join the stage and give you tangible insights into sustainability and organic waste recycling.
