Curated Session: Waste Management Challenges
World Bank Projects Around the World (1.75 CEUs)
Wednesday, September 27, 2017
9:00 – 10:45
Moderator: John Morton, Senior Urban Environment Specialist- Latin America and the the Caribbean at the World Bank Group
The World Bank Group session will focus on three themes: global solid waste data, innovations to improve services, and private sector involvement. The World Bank is updating a flagship publication on global solid waste management entitled What a Waste to provide data on waste management from around the world at both urban and national levels. This session will begin with preliminary trends from the upcoming publication and then move into how data is being used to improve waste management services in World Bank projects. One of the innovations that will be highlighted is results-based financing for solid waste management across the value chain. Finally, the session will transition to private sector involvement from the International Finance Corporation’s perspective.
