Training programme on “Achieving International Climate Change Commitments in the Waste Sector in Bhutan, Mongolia, and Nepal

11-Dec-2017- 15-Dec-2017
Bangkok, Thailand

​The Waste Management Cluster in partnership with the United Nations Environment - International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC) organized a five-day training programme on “Achieving International Climate Change Commitments in the Waste Sector in Bhutan, Mongolia, and Nepal” from 11 to 15 December 2017. The training programme was part of a capacity building programme for the International Climate Initiative project “Strengthening the capacity of policymakers and practitioners in Bhutan, Mongolia, and Nepal to reduce greenhouse gases and short-lived climate pollutants from the waste sector, based on the circular economy concept” (Waste and Climate Change project). The UN Environment IETC in partnerships with World Wildlife Fund Bhutan, The Asia Foundation Mongolia, and Leadership in Environment and Development Nepal is implementing the Waste and Climate Change project. Fifteen representatives from the national and local government and implementing partner organizations in three countries attended the training programme. The training programme was successful in transferring necessary skills to participants from Bhutan, Mongolia, and Nepal, in support of achieving long-term reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and short-lived climate pollutants generated from the waste sector. During the training programme, participants were navigated through various tools and concepts associated with waste policy framework, waste baseline, strategic planning, assessment and selection of technologies, climate change impact of waste disposal and climate change mitigation in the waste management. At the end of the training programme, the participants developed a strategic “roadmap” for implementing the Waste and Climate Change project in each country, thus contributing to the successful achievement of the project goals and outcomes.
