We trained more than 60 local governments in the elaboration of their GIRSU programmes, providing dozens of trainings, lectures and technical support at the international level.

Empowered local governments

Efficient waste management is one of the main challenges facing local governments, who turn to us for comprehensive and innovative solutions.

All human activity involves the generation of some form of waste. The way in which these wastes are handled, stored, collected, and disposed of can generate significant risks to the environment and the health of communities.

In Latin America and the Caribbean, there are a number of common issues that recur in different communities and represent a significant problem for local governments. Some of them are:

  • Inadequate service coverage for waste management.
  • Operational inefficiencies in the service.
  • Limited exploitation of recycling and reuse activities.
  • Inadequate management of hazardous waste of non-industrial origin.
  • Inadequate final disposal in open dumpsites.

In this respect, ALPA Climate Solutions offers training in waste management to address these issues, either in the preparation of integrated urban solid waste management programmes for local governments, or by providing technical support with international specialists. To receive more information on how to get trained in waste management with us, please send us an email to info@solucionesclimaticas.net
