  • Circular Waste Economy Opportunities in Southeast Asia and in the Nordics

    Sustainable waste management is an ever-increasing challenge across Southeast Asia (SEA), addressing wastewater and drinking water supply; recycling versus landfill and incineration and converting organic waste into useful products. Due to a lack of incentives and sufficient infrastructure, recycling rates in SEA remain low. 

    At this closing event, we will draw a comparison between the challenges and opportunities of sustainable waste and water management in SEA and the Nordics, and discuss the applicability of Nordic solutions in this region.
