Deadline:  31-May-2021 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) eu-plastic-regels-2019

The objective is to generate knowledge to support PICs to better implement policies for reduction of single-use plastics and strategies for adoption of less environmentally damaging alternatives. To achieve this objective, the consultants will assess the economic, policy, and institutional needs for supporting reduction of plastics pollution through potential policies to limit the import, production, sale and use of single-use plastics and identification and assessment of environmentally sustainable and economically feasible alternatives. This will involve assessing the scale of single-use plastics waste; an analysis of economic, social, and environmental costs of single-use plastics and potential alternatives; and identification of policies, incentives and market-based instruments that can effectively incentivize greener choices and steer economic activity towards less environmentally damaging practices and products; and/or to provide disincentives to discourage the demand for plastics products that have adverse environmental impacts.
