About the course

Globally, the waste management industry is increasingly moving towards a circular economy and managing waste innovatively to reduce negative impacts on public and environmental health. However, in Nigeria, there is a dearth of professional training programmes on sustainable and innovative waste management to facilitate the growth of the industry.

The ‘Leadership Programme for Sustainable Waste Management’ is a capacity-building programme that advances leadership development and trains young leaders on innovative and sustainable methods of waste collection, removal, processing, recycling and disposal. The certificate programme is also geared towards providing technical advice, business skills training, deepening the understanding of sustainability concepts. In all, the programme is geared towards improving the operational and financial viability of waste management businesses.

  • Understand key concepts and principles of sustainable waste management and what circular economy means for businesses in emerging and developing economies.
  • Gain knowledge of relevant regulations/legislation, standard procedures, best practices, ethical and social aspects of waste management in Nigeria.
  • Apply business and leadership skills to effectively manage finance, technology and human resources in waste management.
  • Examine the complex nature of waste generation, treatment, disposal and monitoring within the value chain.
