The webinar will also highlight best practices and case studies related to the innovative financing of wastewater treatment.


Further Description / Program

Date and time of the webinar: Monday, 30 April, 3:00 – 4:30 PM, Nairobi (UTC +3) // 2:00 - 3:30 PM, Berlin (UTC +2)

The webinar will be hosted by the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-Based Activities (GPA) of UN Environment, an intergovernmental cooperation mechanism that aims to prevent the degradation of the marine environment from land-based activities. Initially established to address nine source categories of marine pollution - sewage, persistent organic pollutants, radioactive substances, heavy metals, oils, nutrients, sediment mobilization, litter and physical alteration and destruction of habitat - the Programme has, since 2012, focused on marine litter, nutrient pollution, and wastewater. Together with its partners and through the Global Wastewater Initiative (GW²I), the Programme seeks to enhance the understanding of wastewater as a resource and works on various issues related to sustainable wastewater management including policy guidelines, technology, knowledge generation, capacity building and awareness-raising.

Speakers:
1) Manzoor Qadir – Assistant Director, United Nations Institute for Water, Environment, and Health (UNU-INWEH)
2) Veerle Wandeweerd – Policy Director, Global Science Technology, and Innovation Conference Series
