Sewage Business Management Centre, SBMC was established in 1991 to
contribute to the improvement of living environment and the preservation
of water quality in public water bodies by conducting several activities such
as research and investigation regarding sewage facility construction,
management, and planning and also to contribute to the effective promotion
of sewage works construction and maintenance by cooperating and
supporting with the activities of Japan Sewage Works Agency.
In addition to these activities, since 1999 SBMC has organized "Sewage
Works Engineering II" technical training course for technical engineers
in developing countries implemented by Japan International Cooperation
Agency (JICA) under official development assistance (ODA) extended by
the Japanese Government. SBMC has managed the training course in
close cooperation with Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transport
(MLIT), and Japan Sewage Works Agency (JS).
