During the World Mountain Forum, the 'Waste(ing) Mountains' side event will be organized on Tuesday, 18 October, from 18:45 to 20:15.


As the human footprint on mountains continues to grow globally, so does the amount of waste, which affects the health of mountain communities and ecosystems, tarnishes stunning landscapes, and endangers clean supplies of water for large downstream populations. There is a strong need to increase knowledge and awareness on waste issues in mountain regions, and possible solutions.


The ‘Waste(ing) Mountains’ side event will present key preliminary findings from the Waste Management Outlook (WMO) for Mountain Regions and provide a platform for discussion.
