    Academic Structure – Waste Management

    Aligned with the mission of UNU-FLORES, the Waste Management Unit is committed to advancing region-specific capacity development activities in sustainable waste management practices. To this end, the Unit strives to change public perception towards waste so the world community can see the value of waste and to advance nexus-oriented management strategies. It addresses issues of preventing losses and closing cycles of resources by developing management strategies for the collection, processing and recycling of waste; promoting strategies for rehabilitation of contaminated sites; and developing management strategies for safe wastewater use and wastewater processing. The Unit undertakes waste management research focusing on integrative and global perspective of resources management.
