The first Zero Waste International Alliance (ZWIA)

Wales in 2003.
The First International Dialog was held in San

every continent except Antarctica and discussed the state of the art for
the proper management of discards.
Today, Zero waste is a theme of several of the
workshops at the R'07 Conference

3. Identification of key zero waste issues that need help from ZWIA to
resolve identification of barriers to success of zero waste programs
4. Proposed global actions to remove barriers
The Zero Waste Dialog will be web cast.
The details for that are still being worked out.
