United Nation conference in Borås on waste management

United Nation Center for Regional Development (UNCRD) was established in 1971 to promote sustainable regional development in developing countries. One of the aspects in this development is waste management, where sustainability is a great challenge in most of the developing countries and even many industrial counties. Therefore, IPLA (International Partnership for expanding waste management services of Local Authorities) has the mission to promote sustainability in waste management. 

Borås has been a pioneer in waste management and also promoting sustainable waste management in the world. Therefore, IPLA decided to have their next IPLA conference will be in Borås 9-11 September 2013. Let's hope this 911 (Nineeleven) conference will also promote peace and closing the cultures, where waste management is a global problem and need a global solution!
