  • Title: IGNIS Project - IGNIS Project Background
    Descriptive info: 1:.. 2.. 1:.. Geography.. 2:.. History.. 3:.. Recent Development.. Current page is 2:.. The Idea.. Background.. Objective.. 5:.. Work Program.. 6:.. Project Organisation.. IGNIS shows holistic project goals and a thematic approach which was as far as known not yet subject of research projects.. Medina (1997) [1] and other sources (Furedy C.. , Bartone C.. R.. , the Megacities programme, etc), give an overview on waste projects and programmes and also on income generation through waste.. However, many projects could not support themselves or expand further, so that the waste situation itself, and the social, economical and health situation of the scavengers is still an unsolved and urgent problem.. Waste management is not glamorous, but without it, every city would cease to exist [2].. The ultimate picture might be an integrated waste management system created by combining the knowledge of various parties in the cities: the waste pickers, small recycling enterprises and municipal services under the city council's guidance.. Composting training with youth groups.. Capability and capacity building are the key challenges the IGNIS project faces.. At the end of the project duration there should be well established both the technical know-how and the organisation methods to valorise MSW for income generation.. For this, the pilot projects will continuously improve the actual knowledge in waste management, the training centre will provide skilled "waste  ...   and urbanization represents a phenomenal challenge.. This is particularly true in the area of solid waste management.. In particular, the inadequacy of solid waste management is exacerbated in slums.. Lack of the most basic solid waste services in crowded, low-income neighbours is a major contributor to the high morbidity and mortality because of pests transmitting heavy diseases.. A step towards improved waste management is forcing adapted waste treatment and recycling with view of income generation.. Objectives.. This action-oriented research project aims to make use of the value of waste for sustainable income generation.. This will include developing adapted technologies, strengthening social status of waste workers, health and safety aspects, environmentally sound waste treatment and economically workable concepts (e.. g.. local markets, market studies).. [read more].. Work Pogram.. Main target of the Pre-phase is to establish a consortium of project partners to work out the project proposal according to the given guidelines of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research.. For this, general comprehensive tasks must be defined and filled into a work program.. Project Organisation.. The project will be organised in a way that the NGOs being experienced in development cooperation.. AT-Verband and ENDA are carrying out the co-ordination and organisation activities.. The University Stuttgart-ISWA is in charge of the scientific co-ordination and therefore responsible for the scientific quality assurance.. Previous page:..

  • Title: IGNIS Project - Activities
    Descriptive info: Current page is 3:.. 3.. TOC - Theory of Constraints.. Methods, criteria, standards.. Guidelines.. 4:.. Data information basis.. Inventories and surveys.. Realization of pilot projects.. 7:.. Analysis of pilot projects.. 8:.. Under the work program the project activities are defined.. The main activities are:.. TOC - Theory of constraints.. Developing methods, criteria, standards.. Developing guidelines.. Establishing a data information basis.. Compiling inventories and surveys.. TOC - Theory of constraints.. Stakeholders involved in waste management will participate in TOC based joined analyses for a better understanding of the complex relationships between problems related to waste management services and their causes.. TOC calls those factors – “the constraints”.. Managing and solving these constraints is the leverage point for bottom line improvements and is the main objective of this task.. The IGNIS pilot projects will be analysed and assessed in terms of material flow, technology/functionality, environmental, profitability, occupational safety and health, and social and socio-economic aspects to identify their prospects and restraints on sustainable development.. For this purpose methodologies have to be developed.. There are many guidelines for data and information collection existing.. But, working according to these guidelines mostly  ...   for planning purposes - therefore it must be established.. Latest scientific information relevant for the initiation, scientific analysis and adaptation of the pilot projects is compiled as a basis for further activities.. Realization of pilot projects.. The pilot projects are the key element of the IGNIS project.. When starting the IGNIS main phase the pilot projects were in different stages of implementation.. Some have already started and need to be improved, some are in an initial phase, some are envisaged.. The envisaged target is that the pilot projects are running sustainable beyond the IGNIS project time and will serve as best practise examples for the future.. Each pilot project will be analysed in terms of material flow, technology, environmental, profitability, occupational safety and health, social and socio-economic aspects.. The results obtained from the analyses meet a defined format and quality to perform the subsequent vertical and horizontal evaluation.. Conferences workshops.. IGNIS project was present at several national (Germany) and international conferences or major events.. In addition to this, the Ethiopian team was involved in various conferences and workshops in the local (Addis Ababa) and national (Ethiopia) context..

"Knowledge for Tomorrow - Cooperative Research Projects in Sub-Saharan Africa" of the Volkswagen Foundation, Lusaka, Zambia 14-17 March 2009.. We had the opportunity to shortly present the IGNIS project and bring it in a context with the aspect of installation of a competence and trainings centre.. The workshop of Volkswagen Foundation had the general intention to bring together researchers in the field of engineering from Sub-Sahara Africa and Germany to specifically support the engineering sciences in Africa in research and higher education, to develop new and sustain existing trainings and research capacities in Africa to improve responsiveness to African demands and to foster the interaction between African and German research groups.. In addition new funding strategies and co-operations for scientists from Sub-Sahara Africa and German research institutions should be explored also with few on strengthening local competences.. The Volkswagen Foundation received the feedback from the participants that the idea of training and competence centre to promote research, training, and knowledge exchange is a very urgent and important but still neglected issue.. Sustainable Urban Development Forum 2009, Hanoi, Vietnam, 26-27 February 2009.. This conference aimed to bring together decision makers from relevant ministries in Vietnam and their affiliated agencies as well as representatives from People’s Committees and com-panies from those provinces German Development Cooperation is focusing on the wastewa-ter and waste management sector.. In urban areas, waste from industries and households, water contamination and air pollution contribute to environmental contamination hindering cities sustainable growth economically and socially.. Hanoi as other Asian cities suffers from rapid urbanization that is putting an immense pressure on the countries and cities financial and human resources.. Overcoming this backlog is therefore of great interest and the conference was used to discuss the IGNIS approach with various representatives from emerging Vietnamese cities.. We intend to establish Hanoi (or HCMC) as one of the Asian transfer cities.. World Urban Forum 4, Nanjing, China, November 2008..
