About the Expert Group Meetings

The Expert Group Meetings are expected to be held annually, with participants from both Asia and the Pacific region and Japan. Representatives from Asia will introduce their environmental issues, challenges and concrete needs of the cities and the current progress of their work. On the other side of the meeting table, local governments from Japan, businesses and NGOs will introduce their technologies, know-how and share their experiences in overcoming issues such as environmental degradation at the municipality levels. Through the discussions, we aim to seek further opportunities for collaboration and partnerships, by matching the needs and technologies available. Pilot projects and follow up workshop information will also be available in this website.

Expert Group Meetings 2019

The Tenth Environmental Technology Expert Group Meeting was held under the theme of “Tackling Marine Waste / Plastic Waste” on 29 October 2019 in Fukuoka.

This year, we welcomed senior government officials and representatives from five countries in Asia and the Pacific (India, Myanmar, Philippines, Vietnam, and Solomon Islands), who presented issues, current situations and initiatives in their respective countries and cities.

From the Japanese side, following the keynote presentations by experts from Kyushu University and IGES, experts from the private sector and public organizations shared their technologies and experience on effective solutions and measures for reducing, recycling, and reusing plastic waste as well as production of alternate materials to plastics.

Later the participants from both sides enjoyed fruitful discussion on practical and potential possibilities for collaboration and future project implementation.
