INTERPOL’s Pollution Crime Working Group Provides Effective Forum for DOTCOM Waste

rome-2151629_640The DOTCOM Waste project was presented to INTERPOL’s Pollution Crime Working Group (PCWG) during their 22nd meeting in Rome.

After a general introduction on the project by Vittoria Luda Di Cortemiglia of United Nations University, Nancy Isarin, Environmental Consultant at Ambiendura provided a more detailed presentation on the training toolkit – specifically the modules on the planning of inspections, risks assessments and intervention approaches.

Secondly Nancy demonstrated the mobile application ‘Watch-IT’. This new app supports law enforcement officers in the field during their inspections of waste shipments and guides them through the often complex decision-making process. The App is developed in co-operation with UN Environment and GRID-Arendal.

A number of members of the PCWG have expressed interest to be a part of the user-test group for the App. Further the United States and the African region showed interest in having the app tailored to their regions.
