Ulaanbaatar Wastewater Expansion Programme

Assignment Description:
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) is considering investing in the expansion of the wastewater treatment services in Ulaanbaatar, which is experiencing increasing urbanisation. The City of Ulaanbaatar (the City) intends to implement its Water and Wastewater Master Plan to cover the projected needs of the increasing population. The Master Plan outlines the following critical components to meet the needs of the population and increased economic activity by 2020: (i) modernisation and upgrade of the Central Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP); and (ii) closure of old Soviet-designed small WWTPs to be replaced by modern WWTPs in the new housing developments areas. The City is constructing several new zones in the outskirts to provide modern housing for migrants and to reduce the proportion of inhabitants living in the so called 'Ger area' (small, fenced-in plots of land, isolated from the main commercial activity and public services in the City).

Water supply improvement has been supported by several aid agencies, such as Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), in the past, but wastewater infrastructure, particularly wastewater treatment to comply with the Master Plan, has yet to be established. The Project will enable the Ulaanbaatar Water and Wastewater Authority to expand its wastewater treatment services to the new housing development areas. The key benefits of the operation are: improved living conditions, reduced health risks for the City’s population, as well as prevention of environmental pollution.

The specific objectives of the Feasibility Study are to develop an affordable least cost and cost effective bankable Investment Programme to expand the wastewater treatment services to the new housing development area by constructing a new WWTP; and carry out environmental and social due diligence to establish Project's compliance with EBRD's Environmental and Social Policy and Performance Requirements (the Assignment).

The Bank wishes to engage a Consultant (the Consultant) to undertake the following tasks for the Assignment:

Task 1: Baseline Study: Assess current conditions of wastewater management particularly in the area not covered by Central WWTP but by small WWTPs and prepare a detailed technical and environmental audit of the Company’s current sewerage facilities and management operations.
Task 2: Financial analysis and projections: Prepare a financial analysis of the Company and financial projections.
Task 3: Long-term investment programme: Develop a long-term Investment Programme.
Task 4: Priority investment programme: From the long-term Investment Programme, prepare a detailed short-term plan for immediate investments and a procurement plan.
Task 5: Environmental and Social Due Diligence: Carry out an E&S audit/review of the Company's management systems, existing facilities and operations, and an E&S analysis of impacts and benefits of the proposed priority investment programme to ensure project's compliance with EBRD PRs, develop a draft project-specific Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP), a Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP) and a non-technical summary (NTS) to be disclosed to the public.

In order to meet the above objectives, the Consultant will review existing reports and data, such as but not limited to; Water and Waste Water Master Plan of Ulaanbaatar (2006); and The Study on City Master Plan and Urban Development of Ulaanbaatar City (2011). The Consultant should research these existing documents in line with the requirements for the scope of work mentioned below.

Based on these numbers, it is estimated that about 27,000-54,000 tons of hazardous waste is generated annually throughout the country. According to the 2014 inventory of obsolete chemicals, it was revealed that 369 tonnes and 69,000 litres of outdated chemicals are stored in 297 economic entities in 139 soums (administrative unit) of 21 provinces. It is estimated that 55.6% of these chemicals are stored in workplace, 25.4% in inappropriate storage and 2.6% in open areas.

The Government of Mongolia has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) to provide technical assistance to assess current controls for the management of hazardous waste and subsequently develop recommendations to improve hazardous waste management in Mongolia. The Bank therefore intends to engage a consulting company (the Consultant) to undertake an assessment of hazardous waste management practices in Mongolia, develop priority recommendations to improve hazardous waste management and deliver a capacity building programme for ministry officials (the Project).

The expected outcome of the Project is a comprehensive assessment of the current controls in place for management of hazardous waste, and based on this to develop a set of prioritised recommendations to improve the management of hazardous waste in Mongolia.

• review relevant data and undertake some verification in terms of balancing volumes generated with disposal routes, and visual inspection/technical reviews of the various handling, storage, disposal, treatment and recycling options being used for hazardous waste;
• review main existing waste recycling operations in Ulaanbaatar to assess existing and possible additional hazardous waste recycling and reuse opportunities that are or can be operated in line with Mongolian regulations and Good International Practice..

3. Capacity Building Programme
• Review existing level of knowledge and skills of the MET in relation to hazardous waste management, and conduct a needs assessment of their qualifications and training;
• Design and deliver a training programme for MET staff based on the needs assessment consisting of three (3) one week modules of training. Each module would be of a duration of five days. The Consultant shall design the technical content of the training module to be agreed with MET in advance;
• Design and deliver a one week international study tour to demonstrate hazardous waste management practices in a developed country. The Consultant shall prepare a proposal for a study tour with the participation of up to 5 MET staff, including organisation of all related travel, itinerary and associated logistics. The Consultant is expected to meet all related expenses (travel, full board and accommodation) for the study tour.

4. Prioritised Action Plan
• Develop a prioritized action plan addressing the management of hazardous waste in Mongolia based on the outcomes of situation analysis and preliminary inventory;
• Identify opportunities for new ventures to handle, transport, treat, use, recycle and dispose of wastes, as well as opportunities for private investment.

5. Awareness Raising Campaign
• Initiate tasks and develop proposals for development of a public awareness campaign on hazardous waste aimed at industry stakeholders and the general public.
