Description du projet ou contexte

With a support from the Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Expertise France will implement a programme which aims at improving the overall efficiency of ship waste management within the South-East Asia. The project will contribute to the achievement of sustainable development goals for ASEAN countries, by reducing the number of illegal discharges of waste from ships into the marine environment.


The project will enable the ASEAN MTWG/STOM to develop a systematic approach to regional Ship Waste Management through the identification and harmonization of a number of relevant issues and provide recommendations of regional importance in an ASEAN Sustainable Ship Waste Management Strategy. This regional program relies on other experiences and activities carried out in Asia e.g. “The Rethinking Plastic” project which was implemented from 2019 to 2022.


Hereafter the 2 expected main results and a short description of their related activities:

  • Result 1: a regional cooperation framework has been elaborated with ASEAN Member States (AMS) to develop recommendations to improve ship waste management.

Related activities: 1. organisation of a 3 day study tour in EU for representatives of AMS ; 2. organisation of national consultations on the waste management situation for each AMS; 3. Organisation of technical meetings and workshops with AMS according to their needs (to be discussed and agreed with MTWG/STOM); 4. Identification of ship waste management measures of regional importance that affect delivery behaviour and competition between ports; formation of recommendations for harmonization and implementation.

  • Result 2: a sustainable ship waste management strategy for ASEAN has been developed to support the development of national roadmaps on sustainable waste management.

Related activities: 1. Organisation of a series of meetings to discuss and agree with MTWG/STOM on relevant recommendations for regional harmonization; 2. Production of an ASEAN sustainable ship waste management strategy, to be shared and validated by the relevant stakeholders (AMS, MTWG/STOM); 3. Preparation of a plan for national implementation of the regional strategy.

For this programme, Expertise France is seeking 2 key experts:

-a senior technical expert (Ship Waste management) who will be in charge of the planning and the implementation of the programme,

-an ASEAN expert who will support the senior expert in implementing all activities.
