The PPP Center has identified solid waste management (SWM) as one of its emerging sectors due to the increase in both public need and private interests. As part of its initiative to contribute in the advancement of the sector, the PPP Center has actively participated in the Technical Cooperation Project (TCP) entitled, “Project for Capacity Development on Improving Solid Waste Management through Advanced/Innovative Technologies in the Republic of the Philippines” headed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The TCP includes the issuance of DENR Administrative Order (DAO) 2019-21, a guideline on evaluation, establishment, operation and decommission of WTE facilities for integrated management of municipal solid waste. Currently, the TCP also covers the development of the Best Available Technologies (BAT)/Best Environmental Practices (BEP) Guidelines for WTE which will provide information on some of the best available technologies and best environmental practices through a survey of cases studies in Asia, Europe and America with more detailed technical, institutional and financial information on WTE.
A Work Plan for the technical assistance of the JICA Expert Team to the PPP Center was finalized on July
28, 2021 which includes the conduct of a KSS (via Zoom) on SWM for the PPP Center employees and the assistance in developing SWM projects.
