Welcome to International Institute of Waste Management
Waste managementis a continuing issue of concern, which has plagued the consciousness of both the citizens and the Government over the years in several countries. One of the key problems facing by developing countries is the raising levels of poverty and degradation of environmental resources. This covers the social, economic, political, technology, governance and administrative dimensions. The Waste Management has neglected mainly on account of lack of priority by all stakeholders including the Local Authorities (LAs) and has become a matter of great concern for maintaining health, sanitation and good quality of life. In this critical situation, understanding the deep rooted implications of the waste management and environmental problems of present India, Vijnana Bharati, has come up with the novel idea to develop an institute, appropriately named "International Institute of Waste Management" (IIWM). The Institute was established in June 2009 at Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh supported by the Madhya Pradesh Council of Science and Technology (MPCST).
Vijnana Bharati is a science movement strives to achieve overall excellence in science, engineering and technology for national/regional/local development with a unique ideology deeply rooted in Indian ethos and culture. It is the biggest popular cum professional science movement with the longest chain of units widely across the length and breadth of the country. Top level academicians, scientists and policy makers of science in India are the torch bearers of this movement, which aims sustainable development of all the living species, preservation and conservation of nature and natural resources of the planet earth and regain past glory of India in the process.
