Winner of Grassroots Science Advice Promotion Awards 2022

A proposed project titled “Science Advice on Disaster Waste Management: Enabling Local Governments to Practice and Promote Building Back Better, Circular Economy, and Climate Change Mitigation” submitted by Dr. Glenn Fernandez has been chosen by the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA) Asia chapter as one of the winners of its Grassroots Science Advice Promotion Awards 2022.

This proposed project will have two components: (1) research on the disaster waste management experience in previous major disasters and (2) workshops on how to improve the disaster waste management policy-making and practice at the grassroots level. The new project will build on the accomplishments made under the project funded by the Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) titled “Developing Capacity for Post-typhoon Disaster Waste Management in Coastal Cities in China, Fiji, and the Philippines.”
