Waste is one of the main causes of biodiversity loss and climate change. The extensive production and inadequate management of waste is significantly impacting both terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Improper waste disposal is leading to substantial plastic pollution around the planet, and particularly in oceans, where it infiltrates marine ecosystems and food chains, ultimately impacting the human diet and health. Moreover, waste generates significant GHG emissions, including methane (from landfills) and carbon dioxide (from incineration). Emissions from waste represent at least 3% of the world’s GHG emissions today, underscoring the urgency for effective waste management.
There is a global imperative to adopt sustainable circularity solutions and confront the waste crisis.
We are bringing together distinguished speakers to discuss the current challenges related to waste management and their impact on biodiversity, nature conservation and climate change. The panel will also discuss circularity solutions, initiatives and the role of both the private and public sectors in catalyzing efforts.
Register for our upcoming panel discussion on Saturday, December 9th, 2023, 4:00 - 5:30 pm Dubai Time at COP28 (Dubai Expo City), Waste & Resources Pavilion (Blue Zone).
