Technological Innovations and Public-Private Partnerships 

A technological innovation is a new or improved product or process whose technological characteristics are significantly different before.  These new or improved processes or innovations can help enhance waste management practices and processes across the Pacific Islands region for a Cleaner Pacific. 

While a “one size fits all” approach is not always the answer for our region, discussions and learning of applied innovative processes, may open pathways for exploration for use through the region.

Collaboration, and support for new and technological innovations through sharing successes, challenges, lessons learnt, and experiences may help empower our Pacific to pioneer, or adapt these new technological innovations.

The intent of the session is to try to bring together outcomes from the technical sessions to discuss the role of business, government, and community in delivering appropriate and sustainable waste management solutions for the region.

Two main discussions will occur:

• Government and industry perspectives - how can innovation and partnerships work?
• What are innovative ways to partner to encourage engagement to deliver sustainable waste outcomes?
