INTERPOL launches Project Eden to target illegal waste

INTERPOL’s Project Eden, targeting the illegal trade and disposal of waste, has been officially launched during the INTERPOL Environmental Compliance and Enforcement Events in Kenya.

Through Project Eden, INTERPOL aims to raise the profile of this transnational crime which in addition to threatening the quality of the global environment and posing a significant risk to human health, also undermines international conventions, undercuts legitimate treatment facilities and causes economic harm due to the loss of recoverable raw materials.
