Day 2: 24 May 2018
Time Conference Room A
1530-1645 hrs Photogallery Solid waste management for clean India

With increasing populations, changing policy requirements, new sustainability and recycling goals, and improved technology, municipalities across the globe are joining the “smart cities” movement to become more efficient in managing solid waste. Smart Cities improve operational performance in many sectors, including waste management. Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan aims to teach citizens to reduce and even clean their own waste. But the big question still remains, how far have we come? Landfills, waste segregation and recycle of waste are major problems in solid waste management that we need to address.
