The "Mitigating Climate Change through Solid Waste Management in Southern Jordan" project, is considered to be a new inspiration in solid waste treatment in Jordan, based on the successful models already implemented by UNDP with the support from the Government of Canada in Northern Jordan and other similar models worldwide. The project takes into account the local context of the target area in the south and the different technical (amount and type of waste generated) and socioeconomic aspects. This project is built on the successes of the previous projects implemented in the North of Jordan. This project is designed to address climate change mitigation measures in Jordan and particularly in the Southern Region of the country by controlling the impact of landfilling waste and introducing the circular and green economy instead, to create income generation opportunities and improve livelihood opportunities for the local community including women and youth. New business models will be introduced pursuing solutions for solid waste management under integrated approaches and employing the circular economy concept. It is anticipated that the present intervention will make a good contribution and complement earlier interventions by Canada and UNDP in the north and northern western Jordan to the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) which Jordan has just submitted (the updated NDCs) to the UNFCCC on October 12, 2021. Furthermore, the present intervention is in line with the recently updated National Climate Change Policy where a set of mitigation Policies and Actions have been proposed to support the Mitigation Policy Statement “towards achieving the vision of a net-zero carbon economy by 2050”. The “Promote a circular waste economy” is one of the relevant policies proposed in the document and the action under that policy was “enhance the national solid waste policy and strategic framework to develop a circular waste economy taking into account all waste management operations (e.g. reducing waste generation, reuse, sorting (at source and other), collection, transport, storage, recovery (materials and energy), recycling, treatment and environmentally-sound final disposal of waste, closure and subsequent follow-up on waste treatment facilities) at all fundamental principles (e.g. Prevention, Precautionary, Extended Responsibility, The Polluter Pays, Proximity, etc.).” The different components proposed under this project are comprised of building infrastructure and operation, responding to socio-economic challenges, improving the livelihood of the community, awareness raising, establishing marketing channels, and developing research (in collaboration with local and national universities). Under this consultancy service, the focus will be on the new proposed MRF, transfer stations (one upgrade/one new compactor), and compost plant in Transfer Station located in New Shoubak Municipality or any other location if some machinery is re-located. In the framework of the current call, UNDP intends to hire a consultant to support the project team through the design of machinery, vehicles, and equipment (the goods) for the project, and support in inspecting the goods during the implementation phase..
