Waste Management
With the global economic development and urbanization, waste production is expected to grow across the world, especially in developing countries. For local authorities, solid waste management is becoming a major public health and environmental concern. At the same time, however, it is not only offering various opportunities for private sectors to participate in local problems but also assisting municipalities in making profits. CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides training workshops on how to develop "eco-towns" with the objective of achieving sustainable patterns of production and consumption for local governments and communities from Asia-Pacific.
Climate Change and Green Growth
Buying and selling "green" is no longer a trend but an essential part of building and driving environmental sustainability. Government Green Procurement (GGP) and Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) policies are crucial for green growth in a country as those policies encourage companies to shift towards more sustainable processes in order to qualify for government contracts. CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides training opportunities, aiming to share knowledge on planning and implementing green growth policies for national and local governments. The training workshop on this key issue is part of CIFAL Jeju's learning series for local governments on low-carbon city and eco-efficiency. The Center promotes city-to-city cooperation and facilitates the exchange of experiences and lessons learned from the UN organizations (UNESCAP, UNDP and UNEP) and developed countries.
