We conduct surveys and researches on incumbent environmental control measures and environmental industries in cities around Asia. Also, the ten-year-old “Kitakyushu Initiative Network” (comprising 62 cities in 18 countries/regions), which was organized in 2000 by ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific), has been reconstituted as the Asian City Network for Environmental Improvement, so that the network can function more effectively.
Moreover, we release information on successful precedents and model cases of effective utilization of social technologies. Such precedents include Surabaya, Indonesia, which has introduced a waste management system based on composting of kitchen garbage. We hope that the information we provide will encourage other cities to seriously consider introducing similar technologies.
