LAWMA Academy, SafeEnviro strike partnership deal.

The Lagos State Government has recognised the need for education to manage and utilise waste more effectively in the state.

In this line, the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) becomes a business partner of the Chartered Institution of Waste Management (CIWN), to implement professional certification courses in waste and resource management.

This partnership is a product of LAWMA Academy and SafeEnviro, an environmental consulting firm, based in London.

According to Managing Director/CEO of LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, who noted that the partnership was approved by the Governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the development would create opportunity for interested persons who seek professional certification courses in waste management and related disciplines.

In his words he said, “It is gratifying for the Agency to have this partnership at this time approved by the Governor, to open up opportunities for individual scholarship, as well as investment opportunities and wealth creation in waste management to add value to the waste management sector of Lagos State”.

Furthermore he described the courses as a way to instill best practice in waste management, which would ultimately bring forth cleaner environment that will guarantee good health and promote environmental sustainability.

Odumboni urged interested candidates to take advantage of the courses so as to become chartered, as some courses are free, while some attract fees.

The collaboration between LAWMA Academy and SafeEnviro UK would help build change agents for a sustainable environment in the state and beyond, while it will meet the need for quality education in waste management practices, laws and regulations.

LAWMA Academy serves as a centre of expertise in the development and implementation of sustainable waste management solutions, while it also a knowledge hub for instruction and certification, set to raise the next generations of scholars and entrepreneurs specialising in the sector.
