The Monrovia City Corporation will on today November 16, 2018 commence a two-day Solid Waste Management conference at the Monrovia City Hall.
The conference is expected to bring together stakeholders within the waste management sector including donors.
The conference is aimed at rallying the needed expertise, logistics, and synergy to address the rising solid waste challenges confronting Monrovia and its environs.
According to a release, the MCC said “the problem of solid waste/garbage in the city is soon becoming a national threat and therefore requires an immediate collective response.”
The release further said the Monrovia City Government anticipates that a meeting of the minds amongst stakeholders and institutions is expected to formulate an effective strategy and identify the needed support for an urgent response to this potential national threat.
“This will involve the review and updating of ongoing solid waste disposal mechanisms and also brainstorming on best practices and effective strategies for the sanitary wellbeing of Monrovia and its people,” the release quotes the MCC.
Stakeholders and institutions invited to participate in the two days conference will share light on their entity’s work, programs and support to solid waste management within the city limit of Monrovia.
It added “promoting a clean, green and safe city in Monrovia is key to the government’s pro-poor agenda and remains the utmost commitment of the Monrovia City Government under the leadership of Mayor Jefferson T. Koijee.”
The conference is expected to start on November 16, 2018 and ends on November 17, 2018.
