In issue 3 of the "ISWA TIMES" 1996, pg 33, the Intl Solid Waste
Association's (ISWA) Scientific and Technical Committee announced the
appointment of Dr. Luis Diaz to set up an ad hoc interim task force to
develop a proposal to establish a permanent ISWA Working Group on
developing countries. The proposal will contain a detailed description on
an action plan, terms of reference, membership criteria, funds, budget and
other pertinent information will be prepared. The ISWA Working Group on
developing countries will be set up in 1997.

To undertake this task, a roundtable was organized by Dr. Luis Diaz on 27th
Oct., at the eve of the 7th International Congress & Exhibition of ISWA in
Tokyo, to discuss how the assignment could undertaken. Four papers were
also presented during this roundtable and an action plan was discussed and
adopted. One of the items in the action plan was that the Institute of
Advanced Studies, The United Nations University, would assist in providing
the electornic platform for communications via mailing lists. While most
members of the 27th Oct Tokyo roundtable already have long experiences in
the field, it was felt that a call for global participation and involvement
was essential to allow others who are also concerned to help identify
issues related to solid waste management in low-income communities of both
developing and developed countries. The results of this electronic exchange
will contribute to the writing of the proposal to ISWA.

We are interested to have your suggestions. We like to know how various
groups can participate and contribute to this joint effort as well as to
assist in identifying funding agencies and potential donors.

Some participants from this list will be selected to join the interim
ad-hoc task force led by Dr. Luiz Diaz to prepare this proposal.

I like to invite you to join this mailing list, send an e-mail to:
