Background / Purpose

The JICA Global Agenda (JGA) is a business strategy in 20 thematic areas carried by JICA to contribute to the achievement of the SDGs in 2030 and to realize the principles that Japan aims to achieve through development cooperation such as "human security", "quality growth" and "addressing global issues". JGA on Environmental Management is called the "JICA Clean City Initiative (JCCI)", an initiative to support capacity building of governmental organizations in partner countries to prevent environmental pollution in order to create clean cities for the healthy lives of its people by promoting environmental measures such as waste management and prevention of water and air pollution.

The JCCI international seminar is used as a platform to disseminate and share information on Japan's experiences and technologies to effectively promote "clean cities" in partner countries.
