Learning experiences with construction waste management in crisis areas

2023 - Connective Cities virtual ad hoc event series in Germany


Connective Cities


During the virtual event "Learning experiences with construction waste management in crisis areas" on November 10th 2022, an intensive exchange took place between 30 experts from 12 municipalities (mainly from Ukraine and Germany). The event was a reaction to the high demand and relevance of the topic due to the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine. To ensure basic services on the ground, municipalities have to clear away the debris caused by the shelling of infrastructure and buildings. However, this work is highly resource-intensive while those resources are not always available in areas of crisis. The aim of the event was thus to share experiences from other conflict areas about how construction waste disposal can be managed as effectively as possible and also reused for future reconstruction.
