SUMMARY Objectives of the workshop: The objectives of the Regional Workshop on Solid Waste Management in the Pacific countries were: (I) to assess the current solid waste management situation in the Pacific island countries, with particular emphasis on the adequacy of present approaches, and common problems being faced; (2) to discuss ways to improve technical and managerial capabilities for developing and running effective and efficient solid waste management systems; (3) to assess the applicability of various technological solutions to problems in Pacific island countries; (4) to discuss the preparation of comprehensive project proposals for funding by external support agencies; and (5) to identify areas for future cooperation in improving solid waste management in the Pacific countries. Summary of proceedings and conclusions: The workshop was attended by 20 participants from 14 Pacific island countries and an observer from the University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji. The proceedings comprised presentations of country reports by the participants, presentations of 14 techniwl papers by WHO staff and consultant, five plenary discussions, and a preparation of written project proposals. A half-day field exercise was carried out to conduct a time and motion study of refuse collection and evaluation of a landfill site in Suva. An evaluation by the participants showed that the above objectives had been successfully achieved.
