Federico Magalini of United Nations University will speak at the upcoming EU Environmental Enforcement Networks Conference on behalf of the DOTCOM Waste (development of tools to counter the illegal management and waste of trade) project. The overall theme for the conference is ‘Strengthening environmental compliance: Challenges and Solutions’, and Federico will provide attendees with an overview of the DOTCOM Waste project and how it aims to increase the capabilities of all those involved in the fight against cross-border waste crime. The event will take place on 12-13 May, 2016 at Dome Church, Utrecht, the Netherlands.
