Hence, the basic social, municipal, and economic services and infrastructures are affected and overloaded. According to UNHCR reports (January 2015), Jordan hosts over 750,000 Syrian refugees, of which over 55% are settled in the Northern Governorates of Irbid, Mafraq and Ramtha, where approximately 85% of the refugees are living in a non-camp setting in the urban and rural areas. The recent increase in the local population represents nearly an additional 350 tons per day of MSW, which exceeds the current collection capacity and overloads the disposal capacityThe Solid Waste Management (SWM) services are no longer held to the same standard that they were prior to the influx of refugees. MSW collection and disposal has become a major challenge for local municipalities and Joint Service Councils (JSC); the average MSW generation rates have dramatically increased over the last four years, further stressing the existing MSW collection capacity, the limited airspace, and the operational capacity of the landfill and disposal facilities. Accordingly, the overall situation of the MSW management system in most of local municipalities of the Northern Governorate of Irbid is characterized by a massively littered environment: deteriorated MSW collection systems with damaged equipment and vehicles, a total absence of any MSW recycling, and inappropriate and dangerous waste disposal activities in the existing landfill site of Al-AkaiderThere is an urgent need to construct a new MSW transfer station facilities in both designated local municipalities to minimize the depreciation of current operating MSW fleets, and to control the overall cost of MSW collection and transportation services. The construction of such transfer stations will result in a prolongation of the operational period of the MSW collection trucks and in the minimization of the environmental risks arising from the waste transfer operations.UNDP, through a fund from the Government of Canada, is at the stage of constructing the planned transfer station in Jerash. The project also will focus on local female involvement through the generation of women’s employment opportunities, including at the transfer station and within the different communities of the 3 designated municipalities—Tabaqet Fahel, Mo’ath Bin Jabal, and Sharhabeel Bi Hasna.The Solid Waste Management (SWM) Trainer (IC) is to serve:Under the supervision of Multi-Sectoral Environmental Engineer and the Construction Manager;In Coordination with the technical supervision of the Project Management Unit of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (MoMA).Technical and financial proposals along with CV & 3 references should be submitted, and without such will not be considered.

To apply, kindly read the procurement notice, attach the following documents and submit through the following email: ic.jo@undp.org CV with at least three references;Applicant’s letter to UNDP/Confirmation of interest form;Technical proposal (proposed methodology describing the actions to be taken for successfully completing the assignment); and Financial proposal no later than 23 August 2017.Any request for clarification must be sent by electronic communication to fatima.abu.snaineh@undp.org. Ms. Abu Snaineh will respond by electronic email and will send written copies of the response, including an explanation of the query without identifying the source of inquiry, to all applicants.With the Syrian crisis, the number of refugees entering Irbid Governorate has increased the population substantially; and caused a considerable burden on the local host communities, exacerbating existing vulnerabilities, national resources, and the governmental and sub-national budgets. Hence, the basic social, municipal, and economic services and infrastructures are affected and overloaded. According to UNHCR reports (January 2015), Jordan hosts over 750,000 Syrian refugees, of which over 55% are settled in the Northern Governorates of Irbid, Mafraq and Ramtha, where approximately 85% of the refugees are living in a non-camp setting in the urban and rural areas. The recent increase in the local population represents nearly an additional 350 tons per day of MSW, which exceeds the current collection capacity and overloads the disposal capacity.[1]The Solid Waste Management (SWM) services are no longer held to the same standard that they were prior to the influx of refugees. MSW collection and disposal has become a major challenge for local municipalities and Joint Service Councils (JSC); the average MSW generation rates have dramatically increased over the last four years, further stressing the existing MSW collection capacity, the limited airspace, and the operational capacity of the landfill and disposal facilities. Accordingly, the overall situation of the MSW management system in most of local municipalities of the Northern Governorate of Irbid is characterized by a massively littered environment: deteriorated MSW collection systems with damaged equipment and vehicles, a total absence of any MSW recycling, and inappropriate and dangerous waste disposal activities in the existing landfill site of Al-Akaider.[2]The local municipalities are responsible for collecting and hauling the MSW to the relevant landfill sites daily. However, most of the local municipalities in the Governorates of Jerash and Irbid collect the solid waste from the urban and rural residential areas in specialized small to medium loading capacity compactor vehicles (4- 16 m3). The daily MSW deliveries are discharged directly to Al-Akaider landfill site for the final disposal by the same collection vehicles, with an average of a 2-3 daily trips per vehicle. The haulage distances between the location of Al-Akaider landfill site and the local municipal service areas in Jerash and North Shouneh/Moa’th bin Jabal are 45 and 80 km one way, respectively. Accordingly, these medium to long distance hauling transportation trips accomplished daily by these collection vehicles affect their availability and services within the municipal collection zones, and increase the depreciation of the mechanical vehicles and systems, as well as the periodic maintenance procedures and spare parts replacement. Furthermore, the financial capacity of the local municipalities is adversely affected due to high cost of daily MSW haulage to the relevant final destinations.The establishment of such MSW transfer station facilities within the local municipalities will reduce the waste haulage distances travelled by the small capacity collection vehicles, and accordingly reduce the operating costs of waste transfer, by using large capacity waste collection trucks with more compacted volumes. These Municipal transfer stations will enhance the quality of the MSW services within the municipal service area and increase the collection efficiency along the routes (collection frequency) by decreasing the haulage time and distance of the collection compactor vehicles between the solid waste collection routes and the transfer station (the final destination for these small vehicles). Also, the use of large waste trucks and compact containers will reduce the volumes of waste to be hauled to the landfill site of Al-Akaider.There is an urgent need to construct new MSW transfer station facilities in both designated local municipalities to minimize the depreciation of current operating MSW fleets, and to control the overall cost of MSW collection and transportation services. The construction of such transfer stations will result in a prolongation of the operational period of the MSW collection trucks and in the minimization of the environmental risks arising from the waste transfer operations.UNDP, through a fund from the Government of Canada, is at the stage of constructing the planned transfer station in Jerash. Recognizing the additional needs mentioned below, this proposal outlines initiatives of construction of other transfer stations in North Shouneh, along with livelihoods activities in the total budgeted amount of 3,500,000 (three million, five hundred thousand) US Dollars prepared and submitted to the Government of Canada.The project also will focus on local female involvement in the project through the construction of a final recycling handicrafts workshop. The recyclables will be delivered to the site from other running projects being implemented under the supervision of various donors and implementing agencies to ensure a comprehensive approach to the SWM sector. This facility will be considered a complementary component along with the other recycling activities being operated in Irbid Governorate.The project will be comprised of two main components as follows:The Construction of a MSW transfer station (TS) at North Shouneh, which will reduce the cost of waste collection and transportation by 20% for the 4 municipalities that will use this transfer station to reduce haulage distances. Under this component, UNDP will conduct the following activities:Conduct a full Environmental and Social Impact Assessment prior to construct/ rehabilitation of the designated transfer station;Develop a design for the new transfer station based on the existing design of Jerash Transfer Station and a list of machineries and equipment with specifications;Identify and engage with the local private sector companies in Jordan specialized in mechanical and hydraulic installments for innovative solutions on the installments needed. UNDP will secure funding for the mechanical and hydraulic works needed from other funding agencies through consultations with MoMA and other key stakeholders of the proposed project;Construct the transfer station facilities based on the developed and approved design and innovative solutions;Develop bills of quantity (BoQ) for the infrastructure and civil works;Present the project to the beneficiary (MoMA & the relevant Municipalities/JSCs).More details on the project’s activities are discussed in the further sections of this proposal: 2. The establishment of a reuse and recycling center to be operated by vulnerable females of the Northern Region under an implementation agreement with local CBOs:Identify potential recycling and reuse items (e.g. insulation panels produced with different types of waste such as wool; furniture etc.) and assess feasibility;Conduct a value chain analysis on the identified recycling and reuse items from other running projects at the Northern Region, and select a few items/commodities for production at the workshop;Design and set out the specifications of the facility and needed equipment and tools based on the identified recycling and reuse products;Construct the facility and contract local CBOs to handle the operation (trainings on marketing the product will be conducted) with ensuring the active involvement of the established community groups;Select targeted women and working team groups;Conduct technical hands-on skills training on production of recycling and reuse products with design support.Accordingly, UNDP/ Jordan seeks to contract a SWM specialist to work as an Individual Consultant to support UNDP’s project team in the implementation of the project’s activities in a timely manner and as planned.The Consultant will report to the UNDP specialist who is responsible in the overall management of project’s activities.Technical and financial proposals along with CV & 3 references should be submitted, and without such will not be considered). (Only Short Listed Candidates will be contacted)UN is an employer committed to gender equity and to providing equal opportunities to both males and females. [1] Baseline Report of the National Municipal Solid Waste Management Strategy in Jordan, LDK,2015[2] Environmental Impact Assessment Report of Al Akaider Landfill, UNDP Jordan, 2015

Project Description: Jordan is facing a severe humanitarian and development crisis that threatens both its short- and long-term development. Recurring political crises in the region have forced a large number of displaced people (currently mainly from Syria) to seek refuge in Jordan. The 1.3 million Syrian refugees living outside of refugee camps are direct users of municipal services, including water supply and sanitation. The increased demand for water and wastewater resources also results in increased pressure for electricity, which represent up to 60 per cent of operating costs in the water and wastewater sector of Jordan.

Despite the Ministry of Water and Irrigation (“MWI”) and the Water Authority of Jordan (“WAJ”) putting a lot of effort into improving the overall quality of the services, the financial and operational performance of the sector still needs improving. Combined water and wastewater tariffs are insufficient to cover operating costs in the majority of areas.

As parts of its response to the crisis the Bank will manage a EUR 30 million investment grant to be provided by the European Union (EU) (the “EU investment grant”) to the WAJ, to finance “turnkey” contracts for construction of c. 25 MW photovoltaic plants on a net meeting basis in up to 5 pumping stations, or on a wheeling basis in Al-Mafraq to produce electricity for water pumping in Jordan (the “Project”). The key objective of this Project is to tackle the increased stress on water infrastructures in the most cost-effective way by generating energy from renewable sources in order to reduce the sector’s strong dependency on conventional power.

Assignment Description: At this stage, WAJ and the Bank are keen to start the procurement process, while in parallel, the minimum technical requirements are being prepared. WAJ require an external consultant (the “Consultant”) to assist them with site assessment (restudy of all sites to identify the capacities required for each site according to the available fund), the tender document preparation , tender process, including O&M process & concepts (prepare a long term service contract with the winning company), selection of the suitable land for each site (the “assignment”). The assignment is designed to assist WAJ in the tender documents review, preparation and evaluation to ensure compliance with EBRD’s Public Procurement Policies and Rules (“PPRs”) and the environmental and social requirements of the Bank.

The overall objective of this assignment is to facilitate the timely and effective procurement of the Project components by rendering assistance to WAJ in the preparation of tender documents, including technical specifications, evaluation of tenders in line the Bank’s PPRs.
The Bank will be provided with an elaboration of all tender documentation for the Project, and the Consultant will provide support WAJ to conduct the tender process in accordance with the Bank's rules.
