Global Environment Centre Foundation(GEC)

JICA Group Training

Commissioned by JICA, GEC has carried out the training course of Improvement of Solid Waste Management Technologies (Basic, Techniques) that is designed for engineering or administrative government officials in developing countries.

At the beginning of the course, the participants from each country presented their own 'job report' in order to share the challenges that their country faces. They worked on developing 'action plans' through participating in the course and shared amongst themselves how the knowledge and expertise gained during the programme could be applied to their country's policy-making.

A training course which is popular in developing countries will continue to be provided, based on coordination with the relevant organisations, in order to meet the diverse range of individual needs. We will also remain vigilant regarding any emerging demand for training in new areas of interest and will bolster the cooperation with research institutions and other relevant organisations.
