In light of NSWMP’s support to the Waste Management Regulatory Agency, and upon the Agency’s request, the fourth round of basic “Integrated Waste Management Planning” training was conducted on 9-11 August 2016 in Cairo. The governorates who attended the training are Suhag, Qena, Red Sea, Luxor and Aswan.
The training focused on providing the essential knowledge for developing a basic solid waste management plan including the technical, financial, institutional, environmental & legal requirements. During the course of the training, participants were engaged in different working groups such as situation analysis and working on developing a solid waste plan for an imaginary city putting into application the theoretical knowledge they acquired. This training will be conducted for all the 27 governorates of Egypt.
