About The Course

Asia is drowning in waste. It’s nearly 700 Million tons every year. A staggering 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in our oceans each year. Waste born greenhouse gas emissions, toxic leachate pollution of soils, waters, plants, rotting or burning biomass cause environmental pollution of epic proportions.


Local governments can’t keep up to build the necessary waste management infrastructure for the exploding urban centers, growing industry and rapidly changing rural communities.


Many communities put all their hopes on private investors to develop the urgently needed waste-to-energy and recycling projects. However most projects never start or fail.


Fortunately, the Asian Development Bank has identified one of the most important root causes – poor project preparation.  Which this training helps local players to improve their project preparation and quality.
