A Cuban network of cleaner production (CP) centres and strengthening education and research on CP


At the existing Centre of Cleaner Production (CCP) of the University of Cienfuegos (established through VLIR-UOS support) a PhD program will be established, PhD research will be performed, and expertise will be broadened and deepened. Based on experience gained in Cienfuegos during 2 earlier VLIR-UOS projects, CCPs will be established in Moa (province of Holguin, East Cuba) and in Matanzas (province of Matanzas, North Cuba) promoting collaboration and exchange networking over Cuba).
