Please summarise your areas of climate-change expertise (in terms of subjects and geographical areas)
We work on waste and climate change: wastepickers, the poorest of the urban poor, already provide large-scale mitigation through recycling and can do more with proper financial support. But instead the CDM is funding false solutions such as incinerators and landfill gas which increase emissions, displace recycling, and reduce employment.

I am the waste and climate change campaign director for a global alliance of 680 organizations in 87 countries. We work to stop waste incineration and implement real solutions such as recycling and composting. Many of our members -- wastepickers -- make a living by picking recyclable materials out of the waste stream and recycling it. Their contribution to mitigation is not acknowledged, nor are governments attempting to improve their conditions and increase the level of recycling. On the contrary, they are being pushed aside in favor of waste incinerators and landfill gas systems -- technologies which destroy resources, increase emissions and undermine sustainable development.
