About the LEDS GP Waste Management Working Group

The Waste Management Working Group (WMWG) was launched during the LEDS GP Collaboration in Action workshop that took place in London in March 2012. The WMWG builds on and complements ongoing initiatives and networks supporting low emissions development in the waste sector and plans to facilitate information exchange and collaboration on low emission development activities focused on the waste sector. The WMWG seeks to assist developing countries in successfully designing and implementing low emissions climate-resilient waste management strategies under the LEDS GP, its regional platforms, and working groups.
