TaDWIR is an EU project that aims at reducing the exposure of environmental and health risk of Lebanese population from waste. Its specific objective would be to improve the overall waste management sector across the country and sectors, by using both a multi-scalar and multi-stakeholder approach and structuring its intervention around 3 components: i) Central support to waste sector governance, ii) Sub-sector support to developing management solutions for special streams of waste, iii) Local targeted support to strengthening the performance and resilience of existing municipal solid waste management (MSWM) facilities. The support measures to MSW subsector aim at complementing previous EU support at municipal level to enhance the sustainability of existing MSW facilities. Furthermore, the project will also target soft interventions at central level aimed at strengthening the waste sector in general at policy, strategy and governance level. The critical approach of this project is to tackle special waste streams first and in specific to consider diverting as much as possible from the MSW streams and treated separately. The entire value chain of the waste streams needs to be taken into consideration and the remaining waste, at municipal level, be tackled taking potential value chain and end-use should be taken into consideration to ensure sustainable solutions are designed.
For this purpose, UNDP in close partnership with the EU Delegation in Beirut is seeking the services of an international solid waste expert (referred to as “Individual Consultant (IC)”) to support in the detailed design of the TaDWIR project based on available data and studies.
