3RINCs Creative Session 2: March 15, 10:00 – 12:00 (JST)
“Disaster Waste Management” – Developing a “Simulation – based training tool”
* open to the public for free


Impacts from disasters become severer due to climate change, and the preparedness and response to waste generated by such disasters have become increasingly important. In order to support the implementation of the Contingency Plan (CP) and the Management Plan (MP) for Disaster Waste Management (DWM), the JSMCWM is developing a “Simulation-based training tool”.
In this session, we invite several academia and specialists on DWM from Asia and the Pacific. And they try to test the “Simulation-based training tool” based upon the experience in Japan. Then we discuss the policies to modify the tool for use in Asia and the Pacific, reflecting the current status, issues, and challenges of the DWM and the general MSM (Municipal Solid Waste) .
In addition, we will discuss how to implement such a tool by collaborating with various stakeholders of DWM.
