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.

[2020 October 15] Current Affairs Webinar Series on Green New Deal (2) - Energy Policy 기사를 twitter로 보내기 기사를 facebook으로 보내기 2020.10.23

Centre International de Formation des Autorités et Leaders Jeju (CIFAL Jeju) organized Current Affairs Webinar Series on Green New Deal (2) – Energy Policy. UNITAR CIFAL Jeju invited 25 participants working or studying on policies and projects related to Green New Deal (green transition) in governmental sector, academia, NGOs and International Organizations. They came from 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific region and East Africa including Bangladesh, Cambodia, the Philippines, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Myanmar, Pakistan, Tanzania, and the Republic of Korea.


As the second of the series, the Green New Deal webinar – Energy Policy invited experts who can address green energy transition from a policy perspective, the impact of green energy transition on the community and people’s livelihood in developing countries, and future implications of energy transition on industry. The three resource persons invited include Mr. David Wortmann, CEO at DWR Eco GmbH, Ms. Hye Jung Min, Energy Specialist at SEforALL, and Mr. Peter Lundberg, Head of Operations at Asia Pacific Urban Energy Association (APUEA).


Participants were given time to interact and get to know each other more during the Prep-session, while taking a further look at the topic from a pre-reading material which was shared by one of the invited experts. They were also able to share specific examples and learn lessons through co-developing Session Brief, a final product of the webinar. This Session Brief not just contains the summaries of presentation and discussion, but also features country cases that can provide a diverse range of stories to “How to ensure long-term perspectives in making and implementing green energy transition policies?”.


This virtual online event, with the Prep-session and collaborative Session Brief, aimed to serve as an interactive and effective learning opportunity. As the Green New Deal is a fairly new concept to developing countries in general, participants commented that the webinar helped them to identify leading examples in the region and narrow down the differences to adapt and implement the green transition policies.
