When: Thursday, 2 July 2020, 11:30-12:30 CET time
Several policies at national, regional and international levels have been introduced to address the issues linked to waste shipments. However, even in the presence of these regulations, significant amounts of illegal waste shipments are occurring across the European borders and beyond.
It is not clear whether, and if yes, to what extent, these policies have affected the trend of illegal waste shipments across EU and across the globe.
The fifth webinar of the series of capacity building initiatives under the Waste Force project, will focus on existing methodologies for impact assessment of changes in policies, markets and legislative changes affecting the waste trade and management at EU and Global level.
After a brief overview of the WasteForce Project, presented by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), researcher from the University of Limerick will brief the participants on the findings from the latest report on impacts of policies linked to waste shipments and management. In addition, case studies on e-waste and plastic waste will be analysed in relation with policy instruments.
The webinar is organised under WasteForce, a two year project funded by the EU Internal Security Fund – Police and aimed at boosting operational capacities of authorities involved in the fight against illicit waste trade and management.
Representatives from the enforcement sector, academia, researchers and policy makers are invited to attend the online lectures and participate to the Q&A session envisaged at the end of the webinar.
