WWF Thailand currently implementing No Plastic in Nature Global Initiative in five cities in Thailand. The main objective of the initiatives is to reduce plastic pollution in the targeted cities using the Plastic Smart Cities (PSC) approach. Plastic Smart Cities approach is focusing on plastic pollution reduction in cities by enabling cities to set tangible commitments and share best practices on their plastic waste management. Through PSC, we would engage directly with the cities that comprise the major leakage points for plastic pollution and working together with governments and other stakeholders to urgently improve policy and waste management processes.
The main target of the Plastic Smart Cities (PSC) approach is to reduce plastic pollution in designated pilot areas within the five cities/municipalities by 30% by 2030. To achieve the ambitious target, therefore, a scoping study to prepare the baseline information is critically important. The study will be focusing on establishing baselines data for each city, which will serve as a benchmark for monitoring the impact of the PSC approach, as well as identifying local strengths and key issues related to plastic pollution. The baseline study component includes general information about the city, the physical component of waste management, and governance factors (see Appendix 1). Finally, at the end of the scoping study, we need to have an action plan which layout the matrix of key intervention to achieve targeted output in a priority area in a specific time frame
This TOR is developed to conduct a scoping study in five cities of Hat Yai, Songkhla, Surat Thani, Patong, and Hua Hin. The TOR would be used as a guideline for a consultant to implement the work and to understand the rationale of the work.
Scope of Work
The consultant(s) will conduct a rapid baseline study by applying the ‘Wasteaware’ methodology, which is a set of international indicators for Integrated Sustainable Waste Management (ISWM), to evaluate the effectiveness and sustainability of municipal solid waste management in the City Municipalities of Hat Yai, Songkhla, Surat Thani, Patong, and Hua Hin. The consultant(s) can select one or multiple cities to work on.
The expected deliverables from the baseline study is a baseline assessment report document (30-35 pages max not included, table of contents annexes and map) per city (see Appendix 1).
The baseline assessment is expected to be completed in no longer than 60 calendar days since the contract is signed
Submission of Application
The interested consultant can submit their technical proposal to execute the work including the time frame of the work and the budget. We will evaluate the consultant based on their approach and the cost associated with the work.
Please note that the application should include:
Soft copies or online links to comparable documents, reviews, or evaluations carried out by the interested consultant(s) will also be an advantage.
