Rational waste management promoted nationally

10-May-2012, by Olena Ursu, UNDP, via web


On 3rd May we organised the press-conference on "Solid waste management. Dumpsites in Ukraine. Is Ukraine facing the waste catastrophe?" jointly with the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Municipal Reform of Ukraine.

The experts talked about the following:

  • Cities in Ukraine where the separate waste collection and recycling are introduced

  • Experience of European countries in solid waste management;

  • Most recent statistics on SWM in Ukraine;

  • Plans of the Ministry to improve the SWM situation in Ukraine;

  • Implementation of the inter-municipal project on integrated SWM in Tulchyn region which we implement together with Despro under support of the Swiss Confederation.

Video records from the press-conference are available here (in Ukrainian):
