DOTCOM Waste is organising two training workshops on tackling waste crime. These free events will be held in Italy and China in 2017. We invite representatives from agencies and organisations directly involved in fighting waste crime, particularly on the EU-West Africa and EU-China routes.
Attendance is free, but on an invitation-only basis, limited to 25 participants. Representatives from the following stakeholder groups are invited to express their interest in participating:
- Law enforcement agencies, e.g. police
- Port authorities
- Environmental agencies or inspectorates/ regulatory bodies responsible for waste matters
The content for these multidisciplinary training sessions will be based on the outcome of research by the DOTCOM Waste project including a comprehensive needs assessment looking at the gap between what’s needed by target audiences and current training programmes.
Each workshop will last for 4 days and focus on improving collaboration among authorities and increased enforcement skills to help fight cross-border waste crime more effectively.
The first training session will take place in Rome, Italy, focusing in particular on the EU-Africa route, while the second training session taking place in Beijing, China, will look at the specifics of the EU-China route.
We will also be delivering online training seminars, both live and on-demand.
