The MedTOWN project adopts a circular economy approach for comprehensive waste management. However, the success of recycling, composting, waste-to-energy, and resource recovery projects depends on waste segregation at the source. It is crucial to activate existing policies and laws while promoting new legislation through policy dialogue and practical implementation, including behavior change for waste segregation.

A national event will be organized on May 28, 2023, to address the negative impacts of current waste management practices, create economic opportunities, and promote sustainable consumption and production. The event aims to bring together stakeholders from the government, private sector, civil society, and academia to showcase innovative waste management practices, exchange knowledge and experiences, and develop strategies for scaling up successful models.

The event’s goals include raising awareness about the negative impacts of current waste management, showcasing successful initiatives, fostering collaboration between stakeholders, and identifying challenges and opportunities in the waste management sector. Messages to be communicated include the potential of waste as a valuable resource, the importance of sustainable waste management for health, environment, and economic development, the need to transition to innovative approaches, the potential for job creation, community involvement, behavior change, and the importance of partnerships.
