Smarter waste regulation and pollution crime enforcement

From 12 November 2019 10:00 until 14 November 2019 12:00
Categories: Projects' events

The LIFE SMART Waste project's final conference was held in Brussels, Belgium, on 12-13 November 2019.

LIFE SMART Waste was joining together with the INTERPOL Environmental Security Programme (ENS) and the INTERPOL Pollution Crime Working Group (PCWG) to deliver a conference entitled Smarter waste regulation and pollution crime enforcement.

The joint conference brought together environmental regulators, law enforcement agencies, policymakers, legislators, industry representatives and other key stakeholders, creating opportunities for knowledge exchange and collaboration on a truly global basis.

Delegates heard from a range of prominent keynote speakers, considered the results and recommendations of the LIFE SMART Waste project and participated in discussions and thematic workshops. Conference topics included key current trends in waste crime, innovations to tackle waste crime, strategic and operational approaches and policy developments (including the latest thinking from the European Commission).

To deliver this unique event, the LIFE SMART Waste project's final conference integrated with the first two days of the 24th Meeting of the INTERPOL PCWG, the annual global gathering of the PCWG network, which ran from 12-14 November 2019. The INTERPOL PCWG annual meetings aimed at discussing new and growing concerns relating to pollution crime and to develop action plans going forward. They also allowed INTERPOL, and all participants, to share current projects and enforcement activities, and to advance regional and international cooperation in the field of pollution crime enforcement.
