Our company, part of the Resources and Waste Advisory (RWA) Group (UK), is implementing a project in South Africa. The project is financed by GIZ and aims at identifying areas for strategic interventions in the waste management sector that advance the objectives of both the National Climate Change Response Policy and the National Waste Management Strategy of South Africa.
As part of the project, DEA and GIZ organized a study tour on waste management in three EU countries (Austria, Bulgaria and Romania) for representatives of the Ministry of Environment of South Africa, representatives of 6 South African municipalities, GIZ and waste management experts. The objective was to raise awareness about international practices related to waste management and to share specific EU experience in relation to South-African specific context. We were responsible for organizing the study tour in Romania.
