Clean Oceans through Clean Communities (CLOCC) arranged its first stakeholder meeting with the participants in Tabanan Regency, Bali.
The workshop was opened by CLOCC’s Programme Director Sigve Andera, and the Tabanan newly appointed Head of the Environmental Agency, M. Si I gusti putu ekayana.
The participants come from governmental agencies, waste management organisations, community organisations, including women’s community and the private sector.
It's part of the Integrated Sustainable Waste Management (ISWM) seven steps. This is a highly inclusive process to collaborate with a broad range of stakeholders to develop a sustainable integrated waste management plan, for regency and village level.
The agenda of the workshop was to discuss and validate the findings of the baseline study CLOCC recently completed in Tabanan, executed by Udayana University. The data collection aims to reveal how much waste is generated, how much waste is treated, how it is treated, and how much leaks into the environment.
The next step in the process is to agree on the elements a new waste management system will consist of, and construct potential scenarios for a new waste management system.
The workshop was arranged by CLOCC partner InSWA (Indonesia Solid Waste Association).
