Waste Characteristics and Management Studies
The characteristics of waste and its management are one of the focuses of InSWA which aims to find and validate data on waste management from various activities. Short term studies have been carried out in collaboration with governments or international organizations.
1. Port Waste Management Study
A port waste management study was carried out in 2011 funded by German International Cooperation (GIZ), where InSWA conducted a port waste management study at the largest port in Indonesia, Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta. This study includes estimates of the amount and type of waste in the port and its surroundings, including those in Jakarta Bay, which originates from 13 rivers in DKI Jakarta Province..
