Documenting Evidences for the Uptake of Climate Smart Disaster Risk Management (CSDRM) : The Case of the Municipality of San Francisco, Camotes, Cebu
After its research work on hazardous waste disposal, A2D Project now embarks on a new project to document solid waste management (SWM) in Metro Cebu in partnership with the Japan-based Institute of Global Environmental Strategies (IGES). Due to come out before the end of the year, this report will detail the best practices of decentralized composting in Cebu City as well as its ongoing replication in Mandaue City and Talisay City.
“We hope to provide a report that will pave the way towards adoption of better SWM policies and programs in Cebu and elsewhere,” says Aloysius Canete, Chair of A2D Project. He shares that many countries in Asia presently have composting activities as part of their solid waste management programs.
Mr. Canete says that A2D Project is looking to partner with IGES in future projects, as both organizations have similar perspectives and advocacies. For more information on IGES, please visit their website at http://www.iges.or.jp/.
