Globally, the waste management industry is increasingly moving towards a circular economy and managing waste innovatively to reduce negative impacts on public and environmental health. However, in Nigeria, there is a dearth of professional training programmes on sustainable and innovative waste management to facilitate the growth of the industry.

The ‘Leadership Programme for Sustainable Waste Management’ is a capacity-building programme that advances leadership development and trains young leaders on innovative and sustainable methods of waste collection, removal, processing, recycling and disposal. The certificate programme is also geared towards providing technical advice, business skills training, deepening the understanding of sustainability concepts.
