The WasteForce Project work package on ‘Capacity Building Activities for European and Asia-Pacific Authorities’ aims to improve authorities’ capability to detect, investigate and prosecute illicit waste management activities and illegal trade of waste.
The capacity building activities are targeted primarily to law enforcement, customs and port authorities as well as environmental agencies and prosecutors from Europe and Asia-Pacific. The capacity building activities enable these stakeholders to better understand the current waste crime trends and to learn how to integrate best detection, investigation and prosecution methods and tools into their operations.
The first WasteForce training on prosecution of waste crime will take place on 27 – 29 November 2019 in Lisbon, Portugal. The training will be transmitted in live streaming* available at: https://videocast.fccn.pt/live/fccn/canalcej2
In total four 3-day-long multidisciplinary training sessions will be conducted: three sessions in Europe and one training session in the Asia-Pacific. The trainings will be delivered by expert trainers, with tailored contents to meet needs of law enforcement agencies, customs and port authorities, environmental agencies and prosecutors.
The second training will be held in Münster-Hiltrup, Germany, and the third one will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
The WasteForce project is funded by the European Union’s Internal Security Fund – Police and coordinated by IMPEL.
