Kitakyushu Urban Centre
CCAC Workshop on Development of MSW Work Plan
Medan City was selected as the target location for developing a practical Municipal Solid Waste Management Work Plan in 2017-2019 with support from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). IGES has been assigned as the implementation agency and has been conducting a basic study on the status, challenges and opportunities of waste management in Medan City to develop a Work Plan in collaboration with relevant stakeholders in Medan City since May 2017.
IGES, in collaboration with the Regional Planning and Development Agency (BAPPEDA) of Medan City and Graha Kirana Foundation, organised a workshop to present the draft of the Work Plan on 16 July, 2018, at Medan City Hall.
The draft Work Plan was prepared by IGES based on a basic assessment and was circulated to key stakeholders prior to the workshop. The workshop aimed to: (i) review the draft Work Plan for finalisation, and (ii) discuss and identify the way forward.
The Mayor of Medan conveyed in writing his appreciation of the contribution by IGES within the CCAC programme and formally opened the workshop. Mr. Kohei Hibino from IGES Kitakyushu Urban Centre presented a draft of the Work Plan while Dr. Fritz Akhmad Nuzir, also from IGES Kitakyushu Urban Centre led the discussion with the participants.
The draft Work Plan will be useful for Medan City as a basis for the city level waste management strategy (Jakstrada) that they are mandated to develop from the national government. The Jakstrada needs to be in place within one year after the issuance of national strategy (Jakstranas) which reaches its limit in December 2018. To follow up the implementation of the Work Plan, IGES was verbally requested to continue to provide technical assistance for Medan City.
