The primary objective of this Consultancy is to take stock of baseline information for plastic waste leakage into rivers and seas to build a more harmonized regional monitoring, management, and policy framework for plastic waste reduction and enable a more circular economy model for plastics in the South Asia Region. The proposed assignment will document the current status of plastic pollution and its value chain (e.g. hotspots for marine plastic debris, waste composition, material flow of waste plastics), regulatory gap analysis, and identification of relevant stakeholders involved in the life-cycle of plastic and their needs, and possible recycling technology and innovations, etc.

eC2: National Inventory, Metrics, and Hotspots Assessment of Marine Plastics Debris in Key Indonesian Cities

Deadline:  20-Oct-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)eu-plastic-regels-2019.jpg

The primary objective of this Consultancy is to strengthen the metrics, monitoring, and knowledge base of marine debris in key Indonesian cities, using robust field sampling and mathematical modelling. The assignment will document the distribution of plastic in the ocean, on the coast and in the nearshore environment generated by key cities around Indonesia that have been identified as having significant waste mismanagement or losses into the marine environment, and building up from a recent rapid hotspot assessment. Embedded in this assignment are specific tasks to customize global methods, sampling protocols and metrics to the Indonesian context. The tasks will also help develop a national inventory and monitoring database. Finally, with more robust, comparable baseline of information, this assignment will help evaluate policy options for solutions at the local, and national scales.
