The ISWA World Congress 2021 will be the 31st edition with high-level plenaries where waste management professionals, government officials, industry leaders, policymakers, scientists, and young professionals meet to exchange views and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for sustainable solid waste management.

The congress will be based on a circular economy, a central pillar of new policies also interconnected with climate change mitigation policies. New waves of legislation and regulations are expected to stimulate serious changes within the coming years regarding the transition from linear economy and waste management to a circular economy globally, promoting zero waste production and resource efficiency and climate change mitigation.

The congress will focus on this transition and the changes required, overcoming obstacles, our daily practices, infrastructure in recycling and recovery, regulatory aspects, funding mechanisms, society acceptance, and the design of our cities.
