Capacity building and development in the solid waste management sector is one of FEEV’s major activities. FEEV is developing various courses in collaboration with experts, institutes and private industries for enhancing capacities of the workforce to the solid waste management sector.
India, one of the largest developing countries, is faced with a continuously increasing rate of generation of industrial and domestic solid waste, resulting from both a rapidly increasing materialization of society as well as the increasing population in combination with the absence of a systematic approach for the management of solid waste. This has everything to do with a serious lack of interest and capacity of those involved, i.e. governmental administrators and engineers, consultants, academia, etc. As a result, awareness related to managing solid waste at the residential and industrial level is virtually absent.
there is little or no awareness of the potential value of solid waste as a material and/or energy resource. In fact, the existence of solid waste is ignored at the level of physical planning, market opportunities, need for general awareness, capacity building, etc,
Indian solid waste sector has been neglected to the point where both the industries as well as the government is feeling the pinch due to the obvious dearth of good planners and consultants, this is a major area of concern for both.
The Swachh Bharat Mission has given a required boost to the phenomenon of solid waste and the generation of it. As a result, societal interest, awareness and professional capacity are in urgent need of development at the level of citizen/stakeholder involvement, and technical, financial, social capacity for the implementation of sustainable waste/resource management.
