|Overview : |
The Kasane Landfill is located along the Upper Road, A33, the main road from the Kasane International Airport going through to Kazungula. The landfill can be viewed clearly from the road which is at approximately 200m from the landfill. It sits at 700m from the Chobe River and 200m from the Nyungwe Irrigation Scheme Park. The location of the landfill, in relation to the Chobe river as well as other places such as the main road, shopping malls, bird breeding centre and the airport, poses economic, environmental as well as challenges to public acceptance among others. In order for the landfill to be better managed, and effectively run, and possibly relocated, certain data needs to be collected and analysed for the purposes of developing a strategy that will be utilized for the Kasane Landfill. This data collection will be undertaken over a period of 6 months to take into regard seasonal variations, waste type variations, and other operational and management practices of the landfill. Such data collection will also serve to inform management strategies for waste in other regions in Botswana.
The purpose of this Terms of Reference (ToRs) is to define the objectives, scope of service and the deliverables (duties and responsibilities) of the personnel providing the service of data collection at the Kasane Landfill. It is intended that the methodologies developed under this consultancy will have relevance and applicability to the management of landfills in the rest of Botswana.
