The KitaQ System Composting Network is a group of cities committed to waste reduction through composting following the KitaQ System Composting. They are supported in these efforts by Kitakyushu City and the Kitakyushu Urban Centre, Institute for Global Environmental Strategies who host an annual KitaQ System Composting Seminar in Kitakyushu in cooperation with the Kitakyushu Asian Center for Low Carbon Society and JICA Kyushu to review progress, update skills and share experiences. Membership of the network is open to interested cities in the Asian region who are willing to submit an achieveable waste reduction strategy using the KitaQ System Composting. Cities also receive access to waste reduction experts and opportunities to attend related workshops and seminars in the region. It is hoped that over time the remit of the network can be expanded to cover a full range of environmental sustainability issues and support.
