Also university professor, Miguel acknowledged that Angola is now in a very comfortable situation, saying that the country has right policies on waste management and recycling.

He defended awareness among human being and explain that the natural resources are finite and the mismanagement directly reflect on the human being.

As for the cities, Faia Miguel defends projects adapted to a planning model increasingly focused on ecological requirements, reducing the use of raw materials and products and increasing reuse and recycling.

There are talented and skilled young people who contribute to the reuse of waste and promotion of green industry in the country, but there are discouraged by the lack of financial incentives.
