UPNG students visit sustainable project site


A GROUP of students from the University of Papua New Guinea recently visited sustainable projects funded by Japan and to learn about life in the workforce.
The trip was organised by Japanese International Cooperation Agency (Jica) and the university for the students to see what the organisation does and what it offers to students.
Jica manages aid and development projects funded by the Japanese government.
Jica project coordinator Thomas Plimin told the 17 final-year students, mostly from the Bachelor of Sustainable Development programme, that maintaining work ethics including time management and team work was important in the workforce.
The students visited the Japan-funded sewerage system upgrade at Kilakila in Moresby South.
Student Jacob Koim said waste management was one the biggest issues in the country.
“Turning waste water into a clean water is one of a good sustainable method of supporting the sewerage project,” he said.
