[DevJobsIndo] UCLG ASPAC HR12112015 – Calling Proposal for Solid Waste Management Survey

Background
United Cities and Local Governments Asia Pacific (UCLG ASPAC) is
one of the eight Regional Sections of the United Cities and Local Governments
(UCLG) which is based in Jakarta, Indonesia. UCLG is the largest association of
local governments in the world and the officially recognized voice of local
government by the United Nations. The Asia and Pacific region is the biggest of
the eight sections in UCLG with linkages to more than 7.000 local governments.
It represents well over 3.76 billion people–more than half of the world
population- and incorporates economically fast developing countries such as
China, India and Indonesia.
 
UCLG ASPAC is the key knowledge management hub on local government
issues in the Asia-Pacific region. It promotes democratic local government,
supports cooperation between cities and their associations, and facilitates
programs, networks and partnerships to develop the capacity of local
governments and the associations. Moreover, UCLG ASPAC represents local
governments politically within the international community, and with the United
Nations and its agencies. It also promotes inclusive societies which safeguard
equality, social and economic justice, and sustainable community development.
UCLG ASPAC is engaged in all relevant thematic fields for nurturing sustainable
development comprising poverty alleviation, climate change, decentralization,
local finance and MDGs.
 
ESCAP and
UCLG-ASPAC have shortlisted four cities in Indonesia for hosting a
waste-to-energy pilot that is aimed at converting the organic fraction of
municipal solid waste into biogas through the process of anaerobic digestion.
Key success factors for implementing the pilot will be the identification of sources
of relatively clean organic municipal waste (e.g. waste from vegetables markets

or slaughterhouses), the choice of an appropriate location for the plant, and
the existence of a reliable source of demand for the biogas generated from the
project or its products.

 
To
this end, a consultant (or team of consultants) will be engaged to conduct a survey
in Malang Regency to identify characteristic of agriculture waste. The study
will have the following objectives:
 
1.
Provide an overview of
the condition of agriculture waste in a city
2.
Identify and
characterize organic and animal waste in agricultural points that could be the
source of feedstock to the waste-to-energy pilot;
 
Approach
and timelines
:
 
A
survey study will be conducted for Malang Regency. The study should follow the
template provided by UCLG-ASPAC and be composed of two parts.
 
Part
I
 will address
objective #1 stated above and consist of an in-desk review based on sources of
information that are readily available. This data can be complemented and/or
verified in direct consultations with relevant stakeholders in the cities.
 
Part
II
 will consist of an
empirical study that will address objectives #2 stated above. For this purpose,
the consultant is required to conduct field missions to the cities in order to
obtain primary data and also for consultations with relevant stakeholders. It
is required that the consultant follow the template provided by
UCLG-ASPAC as closely as possible.
 
Tentative
timelines for preparing this assignment are as follows:
 
·         Start
date
: 16 to 22 November 2015
·         Submission
of the report: 29 November 2015
·         
Report
of the survey should be prepared in English and in
close consultation with ESCAP and UCLG-ASPAC. Relevant stakeholders
in the city where the study is being carried out should also be involved and
consulted in the process of preparing the study. It is suggested that at the
start of the assignment, the consultant can identify a focal point on behalf of
the local government authorities who can facilitate in obtaining background
information and liaising with relevant stakeholders.
