The objective of the Addis Ababa workshop was to generate three main outputs:
- Mapping the challenges related to solid waste management, recycling and recovery of raw materials in Africa and Europe
- Identifying innovative research, technical, policy and business ideas that can help tackle these challenges.
- Forming partnerships between researchers, policy-makers and waste operators around these innovations.

- From one side, replacement of bulk feed ingredients (constituting up to 90-95% of feed weight) will be studied from the starting waste materials. These bulk materials could cope part of the huge amounts of food waste generated in Europe.
- From the other side, the valorisation of active ingredients as well as the upgrade of waste into more valuable feed additives will be studied. The later constitute approximately the half of the feed cost.
Global Waste Management Outlook Initial Consultation
8-9 July 2013. Paris, France. The UN Environment Programme’s (UNEP’s) International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC), in collaboration with the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), is leading the development of the Global Waste Management Outlook as a tool to provide an authoritative overview and analysis of policy instruments and resources for waste management, and recommendations for action. An initial consultation meeting will gather experts from governments, intergovernmental organizations, the private sector, academia and public interest groups, to discuss development of the Outlook.
