Description:

ROLE DESCRIPTION:

Advisory Consultant – Solid Waste Management Programme is anticipated to be a full-time embedded resource within the identified MDA.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The overall impact of the programme is enhanced economic growth in Uganda, leading to job creation and poverty reduction. The programme aims to reduce poverty principally by supporting inclusive economic development and structural transformation, by building the enabling environment for investment into urban, energy and infrastructure sectors.

The aim of this support is to strengthen the management of the urban and energy sectors and boost investment in infrastructure. The programme should deliver inclusive economic transformation and growth that is climate resilient and contributes to poverty reduction and economic inclusion of disadvantaged groups.

The focus will be to develop both the concept and resulting programme, learning from what has happened in the sector and identifying opportunities for cohesion, collaboration, clarity and accountability in line with the principles (or parameters) of the ‘soft-side’ approach to SWM.

Some of the programme aspects will include:

  • This will include supporting the set-up of the Solid Waste Management Programme (SWMP), the integration of the project in CIG and working primarily with operational municipalities and supporting MDAs.
  • SWMP project definition and implementation of one pilot project in each municipality, in the context of forthcoming integrated development strategies.
  • Identification and selection of four additional/pilot urban areas, if applicable.
  • SWMP implementation in urban areas/counties, set-up and training of parent ministry Advisory Unit, training of municipal staff and communities, awareness raising in all applicable donor support, support the definition of SWM policies and by-laws, investment in community-based infrastructure and exploration of possible engagement of private sector in reuse, recycling, etc.
  • Sensitisation of stakeholders is key to effective and successful implementation.
  • Evaluation of the potential public-private collaboration models that could be used to increase private sector involvement in the collection, sorting and transportation of waste. These models should have a particular focus on the creation of employment within informal settlements and the development of the reuse and recycling sector that is able to create enterprises that are financially viable. This includes unlocking investments in the green economy through industry and international funding agencies.
  • Evaluation of pilot area results and dissemination of policies and bylaws models to all counties. This exercise is to include the removal of regulatory restrictions.
  • Solid development and implementation plans must be created that include accurate measurement, reporting and verification procedures. This will lend credence to (hopefully) further potential funding and private sector participation.
