In 20 conferences and panel discussion speakers from all over the world gave the trade audience the benefit of their expertise on topical subjects in the environmental sector.
This year one of the main issues was the current shortage of skilled workers in India. On the Capacity Development Day, on October 15, 2015, the possible solutions were discussed and options set out for corresponding training and qualification. Special Awards for young people and Skills Development Sessions rounded off the educational offering in the accompanying program to IFAT India.
Another highlight was the All India Environmental Journalism Competition. Each year awards are presented on the first day of IFAT India for outstanding journalism dealing with environmental themes on the Indian subcontinent.
For the first time this year a German business delegation participated in workshops about municipal waste management to get an idea about the current situation of the Indian Solid Waste Management System associated opportunities and risks.
