East Africa Waste is Wealth Conference

The inaugural Eastern Africa Conference, "Africa’s Waste is Wealth: Promoting Effective Waste Management Practices for Environmental Conservation and Climate Change Mitigation," aims to provide stakeholders a platform to evaluate waste management policies across primary production, industry, and green finance in the region. 

Date & Location

6th to 8th June 2023 

Nairobi, Kenya.

About The Event

This first conference will unite government institutions, private sector actors, development partners, and finance organizations to develop the necessary regional commitments to scale best-practice sustainable waste management models. It will also explore the potential of waste management as a driver for economic empowerment and job creation while advancing circular economy principles of eliminating waste and pollution, circulating products and materials at their highest value, and regenerating nature.

A key outcome of this meeting will be to identify commercial opportunities for environmental conservation and climate mitigation.

The conference will be held over two days of discussions, including keynote speeches, plenary sessions, and breakout sessions, followed by a full day of exhibitions showcasing innovations in sustainable waste management.
