National Institute for Environmental Studies Japan has been organizing the workshop on the topic of “Improvement of Solid Waste Management and Reduction of GHG Emsisions in Asia” for the past 6 times. It has originally started to produce an expert recommendation to the IPCC guidelines to input the perspective of waste management.
The issue of solid waste management has been identified important in relation to the reduction and greenhouse gas emission in Asian region.
Therefore, we are continuing and evolving the network as a place for dialogue among the waste management experts in Asian region.
Objectives of SWGA Workshop:
1) To draw a roadmap of the improvement of waste management corresponding to climate change issues
- 1.1 Issues on waste management arising from current and future climate change(ex. epidemics, disasters and renewable energy demands)
- 1.2 Action plan for feasible mitigation and adaptation actions in waste management
- 1.3 Feasible technology and management scheme for each city/country in Asian region
From the 6th workshop in 2013, we have started to see the possible contribution of waste management research towards the adaption to climate change.
It is usually held annually and we welcome the contributions from policy makers/academic/private sector who are interested in our discussion.
