Waste Management
With the global economic development and urbanization, waste production is expected to grow across the world, especially in developing countries. For local authorities, solid waste management is becoming a major public health and environmental concern. At the same time, however, it is not only offering various opportunities for private sectors to participate in local problems but also assisting municipalities in making profits. CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides training workshops on how to develop "eco-towns" with the objective of achieving sustainable patterns of production and consumption for local governments and communities from Asia-Pacific.
Climate Change and Green Growth
Buying and selling "green" is no longer a trend but an essential part of building and driving environmental sustainability. Government Green Procurement (GGP) and Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) policies are crucial for green growth in a country as those policies encourage companies to shift towards more sustainable processes in order to qualify for government contracts. CIFAL Jeju/JITC provides training opportunities, aiming to share knowledge on planning and implementing green growth policies for national and local governments. The training workshop on this key issue is part of CIFAL Jeju's learning series for local governments on low-carbon city and eco-efficiency. The Center promotes city-to-city cooperation and facilitates the exchange of experiences and lessons learned from the UN organizations (UNESCAP, UNDP and UNEP) and developed countries.

Workshop on Climate Technology Implementation and Its solution for Sustainable Development


6~8 November 2017  Jeju-do, Republic of Korea




Background


In this era of globalization, new products and services are introduced daily with the rapid advancement of technology, and thus, eco-innovation became important in order for the global society to respond to sustainable development and overcome problems such as climate change, low-efficiency and natural resource crisis. Climate Technology, which is the term for advanced technologies of adaptation and mitigation to respond to Climate change, is an alternative solution. Developed nations recognize the importance of innovative technologies tackling climate change and other environmental problems as a driving force in creating new industry and job since long ago, and they accelerated their efforts in preoccupying this global market ever since.


In order for countries to succeed in sustainable development, it is important for governments to actively engage in fostering adaptation of advanced climate technology as well as best practices of climate policies. The focus is sustainable development for taking into account of efficiency as well as productivity.

Sound scientific and manageable solutions are required not only for emerging environmental issues, but also for shortcomings in existing environmental policies. In this sense, this workshop will provide participants with information and understanding of the concept of advanced climate technologies, sustainable development, promoting efficiency and green policy management.
