Disaster Waste Management


If disasters happen, huge amount and various types of waste is generated at once. Such disaster waste might be a major hindrance against relief, recover and reconstruction. Japan, as a disaster-prone country, has been suffering from various disasters, and trying to improve DWM. We believe we could contribute to proper DWM in other countries including Asia and the pacific by utilizing those experiences and communication.
