Mumbai is the world’s fifth largest city in terms of waste generation. India generates over 150,000 tons of municipal solid waste every day. Only 80% of the waste is collected, less than 30% is treated. Rapid urbanization adds to the existing challenges. Until 2025, India’s waste generation is expected to more than double. How will India tackle the ever-growing amount of waste? Is waste segregation and recycling the solution to pollution? And can art change our negative perception of waste?
Waste management experts – Ms Deepali Sinha Khetriwal (Sofies) and Ms Ritu Thakur (ICLEI South Asia) – will discuss some of the challenges and potential solutions around waste management in India. Mr Andrin Fink of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) will moderate the session.
