Waste pickers reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save raw materials through recycling: they are a real human force to mitigate climate change and offer a necessary alternative to polluting waste-to-energy technologies. Representatives from the Global Alliance of Waste Pickers and allies will talk about their realities and views on the climate and waste policy situation, including a critical perspective on the CDM and the Green Climate Fund.
