Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH | Jul 2022 - Present

Technical Adviser - Sustainable Solid Waste Management and Circular Economy

One of the four areas of intervention of 3RproMar is implementation of pilot projects in selected communities along the value chain at the national level, ranging from sustainable consumption to enhanced waste collection and recycling. My main focus is this area, particularly the implementation of project activities in the pilot (Province of Guimaras). To further gain lessons and find best practices that can potentially be scaled and replicated, as well as identify a rapid set of criteria in identifying positive deviants (positive outliers), I also conduct a sub-study focusing in selected LGUs and communities. Other tasks performed for the project are monitoring and evaluation, data processing and analysis, report writing, and coordinating with partner agencies and stakeholders in the government, private sector, non-government organisations, academe, research institution, and development agencies.

The study is ADB’s first in terms of support for MSWM sector in Asia and the Pacific after the launch of Strategy 2030. It will build on other pertinent ADB studies in MSWM sector, and perform a diagnosis based on ADB portfolio review, group meetings and interviews assisted by literature review, to prove or disapprove the hypothesis of the study, discover other reasons and gain insights. This will be very useful in informing ADB for developing an investment strategy and program, framed by conventional hierarchy/chain of measures from waste generation/reduction up to waste reuse/disposal.
