IAP is funding a Global Young Academy (GYA) project to conduct a joint IAP/GYA policy report on "Solid Waste Management and Green Economy".


IAP and GYA have issued a call to their respective membership for experts in the fields of solid waste management, environmental science, green economy and sustainable development to participate in this report. Experts from all over the world are encouraged to participate, i.e. from: countries with advanced economies (G8); transition and emerging economy countries (BRICS); as well as developing economies.
Types of expected participation include the submission of case studies from individual countries, sharing of knowledge on relevant policies and ongoing initiatives in their region, analysis of perceptions, practices and business expectations relating waste management to the green economy, and highlighting the role of the industrial sector in the development of green economy.

Plans are underway for an international expert workshop, scheduled for 22-23 October 2015 in Halle, Germany. Participating academies will be asked to cover the travel costs of their members.

Details of the call are available HERE.
