06. __UNDP- GEF – Global Healthcare Waste Project –India

The project is initiated by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with Global Environment Facility (GEF) and focuses primarily on activities such as waste minimization, promoting the use of non-burn waste treatment technologies, improved waste segregation practices and the use of appropriate alternatives to mercury-containing devices. The project demonstrates the effectiveness of improved healthcare waste management practices and technologies in order that other Stockholm Convention signatory countries may use these models as they set their own national healthcare waste management priorities. The project's ultimate goal is to protect public health and the global environment from the impacts of dioxin and mercury releases. This project is assisting seven countries - Argentina, India, Latvia, Lebanon, Philippines, Senegal and Vietnam - in developing and sustaining best healthcare waste management practices in a way that is both locally appropriate and globally replicable. India first became involved in this project in 2002, and the first global project planning meeting took place in 2002 in New Delhi. The project was formally endorsed by the GEF Operational Focal Point in India on 25 August, 2004. The India project activities are being executed by the Government of India with oversight management services by the United Nations Development Programme India Country Office. The Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) has lead responsibility for project management and direction, and it has appointed a National Project Director to lead the project.
