Learn from the past experiences of Japan that we are unable to be in

In the lecture

JICA-Net Multimedia-based Learning Materials are globally use in JICA's Knowledge Co-Creation Program, especially in JICA Kansai Center, multiple materials are repeatedly utilized every year for expanding of training effects, and gain a good reputation.

    The training courses which utilize the materials are following.
  • - Comprehensive Waste Management
  • - Advancement of Solid Waste Management Technologies (Advance, Technique)
  • - Enhancement of Solid Waste Management Capacity (Advance, Planning and Policy)

Practical training of Fukuoka method 1

The advantage of using movie materials can watch the scenes from the past. In the actual training, planners reported what are those good points as below;

  • - In "Technical Expetise of Japan in Solid Waste Management" and "Japan's Experiences in Tackling Environmental Pollution", those indicate today's hygienic Japanese city also had an incredible struggling situation in the past, after watching the movies, trainees are able to realize the background and importance of Japanese waste management implemented by local government administrator.

Screening materials during lectures will promote their understanding, "Reducing Waste Through the Promotion of Organic Waste Composting" "Takakura Composting Method", "Road to Sanitary Landfill- The Fukuoka Method (Semi-Aerobic Landfill)" and "A time and mottion study of municipal solid waste collection systems" are the materials of important thematic information with detail explanation what trainees are willing to know in JICA's Knowledge Co-Creation Program. To utilize the Know-How they studied after returning, these materials are distributed to trainees in optical discs.

Practical training of Fukuoka method 3


Besides new materials registered, solid waste management materials, mainly as "Japan's Experience in Promoting 3R's, "Reducing Waste Through the Promotion of Organic Waste Composting" "Takakura Composting Method", are always in higher rank of access and duplication monthly ranking for the last few years. Not only in JICA Kansai Center, the materials are utilized in/outside of our country, in further it would like to be utilized as universally necessary contents for infrastructure of life of all over the world.

*The Material(s) mainly applied

"Technical Expertise of Japan in Solid Waste Management"

The technology of Japan's solid waste management has started to improve public health since the restructuring period after WWII. Japan has completed its incineration and reclamation technology, after repeated trial and error. The next step has involved studies designed to bring about a recycling society. This material introduces the efforts made by administrations, citizens, and businesses. Also, this material is designed to make people understand the fact that Japan once had the same problem with managing solid waste that developing countries are facing at present.

"Reducing Waste Through the Promotion of Organic Waste Composting"
A method of "Composting" and related activities will be introduced, as one of the measures to reduce amount of wastes in developing countries.

"Takakura Composting Method"
Technologies of "Takakura Composting Method" will be introduced, following the steps to prepare "Takakura Compost". One of the advantages of Takakura Composting Method is to collect fermentation agents from the locally available foods and goods.

"A time and motion study of municipal solid waste collection systems"

This material introduces a 'Time and Motion Study' which is a procedure for carrying a data collection and analysis process in a systematic manner. If it is appropriately utilized, will be very useful for decision makers in the public cleansing services of developing countries in their task to identify actual requirements and viable options for the improvement of garbage collection systems.
This material is produced with the aim of providing an introduction to the method and reference for ex-participants to practice it in their own workplace after returning to their countries. The contents closely follow the original training material, which has been widely referred to and utilized to improve municipal solid waste collection in urban areas of many developing countries and regions through JICA's international cooperation for about thirty years.
