New MSW draft rules continue to exclude Waste Pickers
Time: 10 AM To 1.30 PM
Day: Wednesday
Date: 23 October 2013 
Venue: Constitution Club, New Delhi.

The Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, has recently come out with the Draft Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules, 2013 (MSW Rules). These rules would supersede the earlier MSW Rules, 2000 and have huge implications for the way waste is managed in cities across India.


It is important to draw the attention that these rules completely lack to focus on the lives and livelihoods of millions of workers, both formal and informal, who have been involved in waste management. As per the claim, it is also have lack of potential to address the problem of pollution control.


All India Kabadi Mazdoor Mahasangh (AIKMM), CIS&LS,JNU, PRIA, FIUPW, NALR, LRC,, CEC, BVD, CWE, Janpahal, AIPLR, ULRF, Environics Trust, SAFP, LEDS, AMSS has decided to host a dialogue of various stakeholders to thresh out the issues so that the new Rules may lay the foundation for much more sustainable, inclusive, and holistic waste management rather than the present inefficient draft.
We therefore request you to participate in the dialogue and enrich it with your expert views on the matter.
