Contribution to Conference
Asia has experienced a significant increase in population and consumption, leading to a rise of waste generation. However, the ability of socio-economic systems in the region to effectively manage and dispose of this waste remains insufficient. The Erasmus+ Project “SWAP” (Sustainable solid WAste management and Policies) aims to build capacitiy in higher education and technical and vocational training in the field of solid waste management in Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia. This workshop abstract provides an in-depth exploration of the current state of education on solid waste management in these countries, the challenges they face, the structure, the objectives, and the main results of the SWAP-project.
