|Introduction : |
The Ministry of Environment (MoEnv) is implementing the project “Reduction and Elimination of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and other chemical releases through implementation of environmentally sound management of E-Waste, healthcare waste and priority Unintentional POPs release sources associated with general waste management activities” with UNDP technical support and the Global Environment facility (GEF) fund. The project aims to protect human health and the environment from the negative impacts of (POPs), as POPs is an organic toxic substance that accumulates in the human body and stays long in the environment causing serious damage.
The avoidance of releases of POPs and unintentional POPs like Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers (PBDEs), Furan and Dioxin, will contribute to the development of the waste circular economy elements based on the 3R (Reduce, Re-use, Recycle) approach principles. The project is designed with the following three (3) components:
The UNDP Jordan country office seeks to contract a service provider to achieve two main targets:
1. Short term target: The urgent collection of potentially POPs-contaminated plastics (100 tons) in Jordan to reduce the negative impacts on the environmental resulting from the uncontrolled disposal of these items in accordance to the best practices and national regulations.
2.Long term Target: Plan and implement a pilot of e-waste sustainable collection system based on data collected and previous published relevant studies, international best practice and regulations, introducing and testing at least one or mix of the known financial mechanisms for financing the collection and treatment of e-waste, identifying risks, challenges and opportunities leading sustainable e-waste system concentrating on internalization of environmental costs and closing the gaps in the value chain for POPs contaminated plastics to ensure the sustainability of collection and proper treatment. The pilot should provide lessons learned, a roadmap for future sustainable management systems for e-waste (especially for the collection part) and shall create an increased momentum towards enforcing such relevant financial mechanisms.
The bidder will cover all the costs for the piloting of the financial mechanism to be tested under this assignment, including the minimum quantities required for the reports, recommendations, and studies evolving from this pilot (all inclusive). proposed by the bidder and approved by the UNDP. As for the collection of plastics from e-waste, the bidder offers shall cover the costs of all related activity including any agreements with authorized collectors or dismantling facilities.
