Embracing Zero Waste: A Path to Addressing Climate Change


The devastating effects of climate change and the role of humans in contributing to it cannot be ignored. In a recent UN Environmental Programme Report, it was revealed that the waste sector is one of the biggest emitters of methane, responsible for 20% of human-driven methane emissions globally. This is why managing municipal solid waste is crucial in mitigating the effects of climate change.

On Tuesday, August 15, 2023, an important webinar will be held to discuss an action plan to help African governments make informed decisions on waste management. The event will start at 9 AM GMT/10:00 AM WAT/11:00 AM SAST/12:00 Noon EAT.

Mariel Vilella, the Director of the Global Climate Programme of GAIA, will lead the conversation on zero waste and its role in addressing climate change. 

Your insights and participation in this webinar are essential in driving the conversation towards a zero waste future in Africa. Let’s all work together to make informed decisions that will help mitigate the effects of climate change.
