One of the cornerstones of ISWA is sharing experience, knowledge and information within its network of waste professionals. ISWA has amongst its members an enormous amount of expertise and knowledge on different aspects of waste management. This know-how covers technical aspects as well as social, economic and legal aspects. ISWA members and non-members can participate in this sharing of knowledge and experience through a number of different programmes.
