Strengthening of legislative, economic and technological systems on waste management in Ukraine
Composition and management of waste are crucial problems for Ukraine. From one side, natural resources are used at extensive principle, that is not in compliance with balanced development principles and it leads to depletion of mineral and raw materials, from the other side – non-rational use of resources, out-of-date technologies and absence of waste recycling sphere make conditions for composition of great amount of waste. Accumulation of resources, in particular toxic, is the source of long and negative influence on human health and environment. Absence of normal conditions for waste utilization and destruction leads to a great amount of dangerous domestic waste, accumulated on industrial area. Ukraine continues to practice economic, technological, environmental decisions without using a complex approach based on balanced (sustainable) development strategy. Environmental component is not integrated yet in national, regional and sectoral programmes and plans. It is subject to decisions of governmental bodies and business sector.

It is planned to organize exhibition “Waste management” that will contain presentations of companies which deal with waste management, moreover examples of goods, information and promotional materials will be presented. The project outcomes include: – Ratification of Memorandum on cooperation of governmental bodies and local authorities, science, education, non-governmental organizations on environmental issues will be an important step for effective implementation of environmental police in Ukraine; – Development of recommendations on making amendments to the current legislation concerning resolution of municipal and regional problems in solid domestic waste management sphere in Ukraine.
