Poorly Managed Waste is a Climate Issue
1 in 3 people worldwide are forced to dump or burn their waste. This creates significant climate emissions and negative health impacts. Waste management is a cost-effective solution for the planet and people in the #RacetoZero.
Why Waste Can’t be Ignored
Why is waste a critical issue for the climate? WasteAid organised and participated in a series of events at COP26 in Glasgow to put waste management, open burning and public health on the agenda.
A Wasted Opportunity: Open Burning of Waste Causes a Climate and Health Calamity
Climate emissions from open burning of waste are double that of aviation but rarely acknowledged, while health impacts are deadly. Global leaders discuss solutions to eliminate open burning, and how to address it in NDCs.
The Burning Issue? Waste, Climate, Health and Development
Exploring the true impact open burning of waste is having on climate change, and what changes need to be made – by both government and the private sector – to improve waste management globally.
Open burning of waste contributes up to 10% of global climate emissions.
9 million people die every year from diseases linked to waste and pollution.
The Case for Mitigating Black Carbon
Strategies and tools that governments can use to develop strategies to reduce black carbon in the waste sector and capture the public health co-benefits associated with these reductions.
Recycling E-Waste for a Low Carbon Technology Future
WasteAid welcomes Circular Innovation Hub, musicMagpie and global waste trade journalist Adam Minter from Bloomberg to discuss how electronic waste impacts climate change.
