У Мінску абмяркуюць пытанні забруджвання водных рэсурсаў

30 студзеня 2018 года ў Мінску адбудзецца канферэнцыя “Зніжэнне забруджаных водных рэсурсах на раённым узроўні за кошт укаранення інавацыйных рашэнняў і удзелу насельніцтва”.

У канферэнцыі прымуць удзел прадстаўнікі раённых выканаўчых камітэтаў, жыллёва-каммунальных прадпрыемстваў, НДА, СМІ.  На мерапрыемстве будуць абмяркоўвацца “старыя” праблемы забруджвання вады, як напрыклад, біягеннае забруджванне, і “новыя”, сярод якіх забруджванне небяспечнымі рэчывамі і мікрапластыкам, інавацыйныя рашэнні на мясцовым узроўні і міжнароднае супрацоўніцтва ў рэгіёне Балтыйскага мора.

Таксама ў мерапрыемстве паўдзельнічаюць эксперты праекта NonHazCity і падзеляцца карысным для Беларусі вопытам працы па тэме зніжэння паступлення забруджвальных рэчываў, якія ўтрымліваюцца ў прамысловых таварах.

– Адна з мэтаў праекта NonHazCity пратэсціраваць актуальнасць праблемы сярод краін, якія не ўваходзяць у Еўрапейскі саюз, але ўплываюць на Балтыйскае мора, напрыклад, Беларусь. Пачынаючы з гэтага года мы маем даччыны праект у Беларусі Bel-NonHazCity, які фінансуецца Шведскім Інстытутам. Вельмі добра, что беларускі партнёр арганізуе гэтую канферэнцыю, што дае магчымасць узаемадзейнічаць з беларускімі мэтавымі групамі і распаўсюджваць ідэі NonHazCity ды ўжо дасягнутыя вынікі, – падкрэсліла менеджар праекта NonHazCity Тоні Вікман.

Канферэнцыя праводзіцца пры фінансавай падтрымцы Еўрапейскага саюза і Шведскага агенцтва па міжнародным развіцці і супрацоўніцтву (SIDA).
