The International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) World Congress is widely recognized as the premier event in the field of solid waste management. IIASA researcher Adriana Gomez Sanabria will participate in a panel discussion at the event which will take place in Oman.

The ISWA World Congress is a global meeting which includes high level plenaries, as well as technical site visits and a cultural and social program, where waste management professionals, government officials, industry leaders, policy makers, scientists, and young professionals meet to exchange views and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable solid waste management.

For the first time since its beginning in 1972, the ISWA World Congress will take place in the Middle East. This year's congress will be hosted by Oman Environmental Service Holding Company S.A.O.C (be’ah) in Muscat, Oman. 

IIASA researcher Adriana Gomez Sanabria will participate in a panel discussion on the "Waste Sector's Impacts on Climate, and living Conditions". The session is a stepping stone towards ISWA’s presence at the Climate COP28 in Dubai, focusing on how waste sector activities can effectively support climate protection during the transition to de-fossilization. It will also examine the potential roles and contributions of different waste management actors.
