Background

Montenegro was granted the status of a candidate country for membership in the European Union (EU). The recommendation of the relevant authorities of the European Commission (EC) underline the need to protect the environment and, in this regard, to build municipal infrastructure that should ensure appropriate waste management. Among other things, the status of a candidate country also intensified Montenegro’s commitments related to the implementation of regulations aligned with the European legislation, and concurrently increased opportunities for larger financial support from the EU pre-accession funds. The process of adaptation or harmonization of the national legislation with the EU legislation, which resulted in adoption of numerous laws and other regulations, has taken place since 2000.

The issues of environmental protection did not receive the necessary attention. Being aware of the need to change that situation, the Parliament of Montenegro adopted the Declaration concerning the Ecological State of Montenegro in 1991, while the 1992 Constitution and the Constitution of 2007 established Montenegro as an ecological state. Thus, the basics to regulate the situation and measures to be taken at the state level for resolving environmental issues were clearly identified. This also represents an unequivocal support to sustainable development, which Montenegro has identified as a predominant strategic developmental determinant in two important documents: "Development Directions of the Ecological State of Montenegro", approved by the Government of Montenegro in 2001 and the "National Strategy for Sustainable Development", adopted by the Government of Montenegro in March 2007. By adopting the Environmental Law in 2008, Montenegro committed itself to base its own development on the principles of sustainability.

Having realized the critical impact of environmental protection on the economic development potential, particularly on tourism, the Government of Montenegro has confirmed its commitment to identify and eliminate deficiencies, as well as to improve the situation, both at the legislative and institutional level and at the level of construction of necessary infrastructure.

1. Current situation in the field of municipal waste management

With regard to the waste management infrastructure, the following has been built so far: regional landfills for non-hazardous waste in Podgorica and Bar; recycling centers in Podgorica and Herceg Novi; treatment facilities of end-of-life vehicles in Podgorica (2), Berane, Cetinje and Niksic (3); transfer stations in Kotor and Herceg Novi; recycling yards in Podgorica (5), Herceg Novi (1) and Kotor (1). A waste sorting facility was opened in Zabljak (recycling yard with a transfer station). The first compost production facility was opened in the municipality of Kotor, with the aim of solving green waste management issues in the municipalities of Kotor, Tivat, Budva and Herceg Novi. A facility for treatment of medical waste collected from territories for municipalities of Kolašin, Mojkovac, Bijelo Polje, Pljevlja, Berane, Rožaje, Andrijevica and Plav was set up in Berane, and another one in the Capital City of Podgorica.

Montenegro Waste Management Strategy until 2030 and the National Waste Management Plan 2015-2020 were adopted in July 2015, and the National strategy with the action plan for transposition, implementation and enforcement of EU acquis on environment and climate change 2016-2020 was adopted in 2016.

In addition to the institutional framework development, it is important to underline the possibility of receiving funds through financial arrangements with the European Investment Bank and the World Bank, as well as the possibility of getting grants from IPA pre-accession support. The funds for preparation of spatial planning and technical documentation are generally provided by the Government of Montenegro, as well as through technical support of international financial institutions and organizations.

Objective of the assignment

In 2016, The Government of Montenegro adopted the National strategy with the action plan for transposition, implementation and enforcement of EU acquis on environment and climate change 2016-2020. This Strategy serves as a frame for transposition, implementation and enforcement of EU acquis on climate change environment. The Strategy also includes the action plan with detailed activities to be implemented, as well as plans for development of relevant administrative capacities and an assessment of financial sources. For the purposes of implementation of the Strategy, the action plan envisages development of the Study of the management of special types of waste and specific implementation plans for related directives.

The overall goal to be accomplished with preparation of the Study and Specific Plans is creation of conditions for organization and performance of waste management activities in Montenegro, particularly special types of waste (packaging waste, end-of-life vehicles, waste tyres, waste from electrical and electronic equipment, waste batteries and accumulators) in a feasible, sustainable and efficient manner, in accordance with relevant legislation and the best practice in EU member states.


Duties and Responsibilities

In order to establish an optimal applicable model of organizing waste management activities, the geographic area that needs to be covered is the entire territory of Montenegro. The goal of drafting the Study and Specific Plans is to solve problems in the area of waste management, problems which affect the population, touristic and economic structure in Montenegro. The Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism will perform the coordination of activities in regard to the preparation of the Strategy and Specific Plans and its authorized representatives (coordinators) will be in charge of cooperation with the Consultant during the drafting of relevant documentation.

The Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism will provide all relevant documents (reports, maps, etc.) in their possession to the Consultant for insight, as well as the documentation that it manages to obtain from competent institutions. It is the Consultant's obligation to check the quality and adequacy of this documentation. Cooperation with relevant competent bodies is being performed through the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism.

At the end of its involvement, the Consultant will continue to be a contact person, who will be available for consultations, with regard to follow-up activities of the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism on implementation of the Strategy and Specific Plans.

The consultancy assignment includes the following:

I Preparation of the Study will include, but not be limited to the following activities:

  • Analysis of current experiences in the management of special types of waste – the Consultant needs to analyse the current status of management of special types of waste in Montenegro. This should include the analysis of special types of waste (i.e. their origin, amount, disposal, etc.) and the data on where these types of waste are being generated or stored. The Consultant needs to prepare projections on future waste generation for each individual type of waste. For that purpose, the Study Consultant needs to make realistic and EU Member States comparable presumptions with regard to the effects which result from measures such as separate collection, implementation of extended producer responsibility (EPR) schemes, etc.
  • Presentation of the legislative and institutional framework – the Consultant will present the current EU legislation requirements, current situation and results in regard to implementation of EU legislation in Montenegro, in order to reach a conclusion on further requirements for full implementation of EU legislation.
  • Presentation of the best EU practices in the area of management of relevant special types of waste – the Consultant is required to show the experiences of other EU Member States which refer to previously applied, current and planned technologies, in order to implement EU directives. Based on the input information, possible models of management for certain schemes of separate collection and processing and introduction of extended producer responsibility or some other system of collection need to be explained and their comparability with EU Member States’ schemes needs to be shown.
  • Organization of a workshop – after obtaining the positive opinion from the Commission for Technical Check of Documentation, the Consultant should organize a workshop and present the Study to the relevant stakeholders, with particular reference to the conclusions.

II The Consultant will prepare special specific implementation plans for the following directives:

  • Directive 2008/98/EC on Waste,
