Living Earth has been joining forces with academics, NGOs and private sector organisations interested in working to help push waste management up the development agenda. These include Professor David Wilson of Imperial College, Dr Costas Velis of the University of Leeds and Dr Ljiljana Rodic of Wageningen University, who won the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) Telford Premium Medal 2014 for their paper on “Integrated sustainable management in developing countries”, recognising it as one of the best papers published across all the ICE journals. We are delighted that the authors have chosen to donate their cash prize to Living Earth, in acknowledgment of our work in tackling waste management challenges and championing the positive benefits that well-managed waste managed systems can bring. A public lecture to present the paper will be given by Professor David Wilson on Monday 16th March as part of the ICE’s Thomas Telford Prestige Papers Lecture Series 2015.
