WASTE AND CLIMATE CHANGE PROJECT:

TRAINING OF POLICY MAKERS FROM BHUTAN, MONGOLIA AND NEPAL

From 11 to 15 December 2017, policy makers from Bhutan, Mongolia and Nepal will join the International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC) team in Bangkok, Thailand, for a five-day training on how to achieve long-term reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and short-lived climate pollutants from the waste sector.

Organized jointly by IETC and the Asian Institute of Technology, Regional Resource Centre for Asia and the Pacific (AIT RRC.AP), the event will gather five representatives from Mongolia, Bhutan and Nepal from national and local governments as well as implementing partner organizations.

Through a mix of interactive learning methodologies including lectures, peer-learning sessions and field visits, participants will gain a better understanding of the tools available to select suitable environmentally sound technologies and to improve waste management systems. Participants will also be trained on current opportunities in climate financing.

The training is part of the Waste and Climate Change project, funded by the German International Climate Initiative (IKI) and implemented by UN Environment International Environmental Technology Centre (IETC).
