Wastewater and sludge management for the circular economy in the Western Balkans
Over the past decades, the wastewater paradigm in the Netherlands has shifted from linear to circular, putting the emphasis on closed cycles and energy, water and nutrient recovery. The recently adopted European Green Deal, that seeks to make the European Union climate neutral by 2050, may offer new opportunities for Western Balkan countries which are actively working on improving wastewater and sludge management.
To explore these opportunities, the Netherlands Water Partnership, with the support of the Partners for Water Programme, will host a webinar on 22 September on the topic of ‘Wastewater and sludge management for the circular economy in the Western Balkans’.The webinar will last 60 minutes. The first 45 minutes will consist of short presentations of key experts from leading Dutch and international organisations. The last 15 minutes will be reserved for an open discussion.
Date: 22 September
Time: 14 hours CET
Instructions to join the online meeting to be sent by the organisers.
