SWMCOL’s Chief Executive Officer, Ronald Roach, delivered a presentation on the consequences of delayed actions as it relates to waste management activities. In addition to highlighting the achievements of some of the Caribbean countries, the forum also focused on disaster waste management and delved into the root causes of some persistent waste management issues. SWMCOL believes that the event was particularly timely given the challenges currently being faced by the region as it relates to water pollution and climate change.
Other participants at the forum included Mr. Dale Cozier–Project Manager, EMA; Dr. Ahmad Khan–Director, Basel Convention Regional Center (Trinidad); and representatives from host country, Guyana, as well as Barbados, Grenada, Belize, Montserrat, Antigua & Barbuda, Jamaica, and St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
The Ministerial Forum was supported by the CWWA, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
