Our focus is on capacity building of stakeholders. This includes knowledge exchange and bridging top-down strategies to bottom-up. Topics cover

  • reduce the flow of waste into the environment
  • the need for segregation and separate collection of waste streams at household and company level;
  • the impact of waste in the environment (on human health, climate change, impact on the marine environment, on the fresh water source and our food chain)
  • riverine waste and waste entering (open) lakes
  • stakeholders connecting to the Indonesian recycling industry, to divert plastic recyclables from the environment to the recycling industry.
  • effective campaigning on reduction of Single Use Plastics (SUPs)
  • waste & tourism
  • circular economy & alternative delivery model development

This is how we connect stakeholders

  • Direct communications with and between 4850+ stakeholders in our national and international network on our discussion forum
  • Direct communications via WhatsApp groups, Zoom meetings and webinars
  • Peer-to-Peer Capacity Building Program – facilitating stakeholders to meet in person for a powerful week of knowledge exchange and capacity building for waste management skills for selected leaders of grass root organisations from remote regions which have the potential to spread their acquired skills in their region.

On Bali there is a high concentration of waste experts from various sectors who are willing to share their knowledge and best-practices to their peers in IWP. Their knowledge transfer is an in-kind donation. Bali is unique in this respect. The fact that waste experts are located in such a compact region enables us to offer a compact, cost and time efficient program for knowledge transfer.

This knowledge exchange covers exchange

  • Awareness / skills waste separation, composting, permaculture;
  • Recycling of plastics waste business skills;
  • Campaigning skills;
  • Community based waste management concept;
  • Environmental education
  • Technical solutions
  • Establishing community cleanup group activities
  • Holistic Education: Green School concept
  • Collection requirements of the recycling industry regarding plastic

Outcomes

  • insights in local waste stakeholder networks, local waste management and challenges regarding waste management;
  • connections & collaborations established between local governmental stakeholders, grass root organisations and the recycling industry
