Coming soon: Central Asia Waste Outlook

Central Asia is witnessing an impressive transformation from a region richly endowed with waste legacies - including radioactive, mining and industrial waste - to an increasingly functioning waste management system. The Waste Management Outlook for Central Asia, to be published soon, provides a richly illustrated synthesis of the global waste challenges, facts and figures from the countries and an executive regional outlook.


Drones in Humanitarian Action

Drones have become functional, user friendly and cheap enough, to significantly help in humanitarian crises. That is one of the key findings of the research initiative “Drones in Humanitarian Action”, which examines different uses of drones for humanitarian operations. It was presented by the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD), in partnership with CartONG, UAViators and Zoi Environment Network during the EU Humanitarian Aid Annual Partners’ Conference in Brussels. The corresponding report, produced by Zoï, is available as an ebook and in PDF format, while a video can be viewed above or on Vimeo.
