This Practical Guide is the compilation of good practices identified and developed by experts in the region through J-PRISM Phase I. This covers all solid waste management (SWM) issues from the technical ones, such as waste generation survey and landfill improvement, to the managerial ones, such as contract management and user pays system. These good practices have high applicability to other Pacific islands, although modification and adaptation are always necessary.

This research covers two PNG cities, Port Moresby (POM) and Lae. POM has a
population of 650,000+ and Lae has 200,000+. Both cities expect rapid
population growth (due to urban drift) and economic boom (due to gas, oil and
mineral projects), and therefore the level of waste generation and management is
becoming a real concern.
The collection, collation and review of data on the management of healthcare waste and best-practice options for its disposal in FSM under the PacWaste project. Information regarding the waste management process occurring, from ward-level waste generation through to ultimate treatment and disposal was collected during audits of the four largest hospitals:
• Yap State Hospital, Yap
• Chuuk State Hospital, Chuuk
• Pohnpei State Hospital, Pohnpei
• Kosrae State Hospital, Kosrae
This new State Solid Waste Management Strategy (SSWMS) is formulated with the aim of enabling Yap State to establish a technically sound and financially sustainable solid waste management (SWM) system. To do so, this SSWMS consists of not only strategic elements but also a mid-term action plan of the first five years with technically, institutionally and financially appropriate options, which will propel realization of the SSWMS.

This small study is an initial feasibility study, designed to give some indication of the numbers of vehicles and the economics of any waste management system that might be appropriate to dealing with the problem. This study looks at two issues: what does it take to strip a typical wrecked Tarawa vehicle so that it can be recycled; and how many vehicles might there be in South Tarawa that need some waste management.
This assessment provides the broad findings of the research and investigation undertaken by the UoM team in relation to Kiribati. It provides:
