Waste Sector

Opportunities for green jobs in the waste sector

The prevention, reuse, recycling and recovery of waste can create considerable social, economic and environmental opportunities for many countries.

This course focuses on the potential for decent work promotion and green business development across the waste hierarchy, with a focus on waste collection, sorting and recycling. Lessons will be learned from a review of the international literature, analysis of case studies and interviews with those involved. There will be special emphasis on identifying and developing solutions to bridge gaps in the recognition and integration of the contributions made by workers in the informal economy.

Target audience

The course is aimed at a mixed audience of representatives from national and local governments, social partners, professionals and entrepreneurs from the waste sector; national and international development agencies; civil society organizations and academia. A gender-balanced participation is sought.
