Venezuela is highly prone to earthquakes and torrential rains, which often can cause major disasters such as the flash flooding and major landslides. The mudslide in Vargas was the worst natural disaster in Venezuela in the last century, The number of victims of the mudslides is estimated at 10,000 to 30,000.

One of the most distressing environmental problems we have to face worldwide to date is the "waste-problem" which is becoming an emerging problem particularly in Hungary as it has not implemented a proper waste disposal system which would be an absolute must for an EU-member state. According to our Ministry of Environment, about 4 million people should have been collecting the waste selectively by now, in order to accomplish the EU-requirements. In reality, from the 4 million tons of waste produced each year, only 2-3 percent is disposed selectively, which means that only about 200-400 thousands people participate in the already existing programs. The goal is to boost the environment-consciousness in Hungary, reduce the pollution that origins from wastes; and use less amount of raw materials to lower the costs of waste disposal. This study aims to reveal ideas and the expectations from different groups of subject matter experts.

This report draws on the experience derived from the EUFORIA project, in which three pilot KSF exercises were undertaken for Finland, Germany and Greece. It outlines the steps taken in this project that could be used to inform an Irish project, and explores options for further development of the approach in an Irish context. One of the lessons of EUFORIA is, indeed, the importance of the ‘localisation’ of KSF.
