The Japanese Technical Cooperation Project for Promotion of Regional Initiative on Solid Waste Management (J-PRISM I) for Solomon Islands has yielded successful results.
Japanese Ambassador to Solomon Islands, H.E Kenichi Kimiya during his remarks at J-PRISM’s first steering committee on Monday said through the continuous efforts and team work with the Ministry of Environment, Honiara City Council and Gizo, Western Province, they have achieved the successful result from the project.
“It was J-PRISM Phase 1 that Japan had actively extended the support to Solomon Islands for improving the waste management program by sending consultants and experts to transfer the technology as well as the knowledge and experience,” he said.
The meeting was attended by members of the project from nine Pacific countries including the Solomon Islands.
The meeting was designated as a regional cooperative framework for the management of the J-PRISM and bridging of both phases I and II.
On Tuesday, the J-PRISM committee meeting participants visited some of the projects’ site in Honiara which concludes the program.
