Relaunch of the UBA platform for online mapping of global best practice projects

Relaunch of the UBA platform for online mapping of global best practice projects

The online mapping of worldwide best practice projects of the German Environment Agency (UBA) is intended to provide an overview of international waste and wastewater management projects with German participation and to inform about the main points: WHERE and WHEN did WHICH international projects with WHICH goal and WHICH actors took place?

A major challenge in environmental technology transfer is knowledge management: in Germany there is a lack of coordination both among public sector actors and between the public and private sectors, with the result that cooperation and synergies often go unused. A lack of transparency means that many similar projects are planned, financed and implemented in isolation from one another. There is no cross-actor database on completed and ongoing projects, including their objectives, results and contact persons. Uncomplicated access is just as important as intuitive user guidance. With the online mapping of worldwide best practice projects (waste/wastewater), UBA is making an initial proposal for a solution that should encourage participation.
