Emission Reduction in Cities Programme: Solid Waste Management (SWM) – Accompanying Measures Consultant

Detailed description of project:

This SWM Programme is a contribution to achieving the Government of Indonesia’s CO2 emission reduction targets and to implementing the Solid Waste Law (UU18/2008). The Directorate General of Human Settlements, responsible for establishing a national project management unit (NPMU), is supported by an Implementation Consultant (IC) for the planning and construction of SWM facilities (a loan up to EUR 75 million has been allocated through KfW to finance the investments, among them four new Sanitary Landfills), and an Accompanying Measure Consultant (AMC). Partner municipalities are four cities and regencies, i.e. the Cities of Malang and Jambi and the Regencies of Jombang and Sidoarjo. Each of them will set up a local PMU.

The AMC, subject of this contract, advises on institutional and organisational development, financial management and capacity building measures accompanying the investments on the level of the national Ministry MoPWH, of the involved four provincial and municipal partner administrations.

Project activities involve preparation and conduct of public awareness campaigns in the partner municipalities, regulation and improvement of municipal SWM services including the consideration of waste pickers and middle men in the informal sector. After an update of needs assessments in several feasibility studiesin previous ERiC phases, generic tools for the planning and operation of SWM systems are now being elaborated and used in centralized capacity building measures for representatives of MoPWH and staff of provincial and municipal administrations. Customised trainings to the needs of the SWM departments of the selected cities and regencies as e.g. annual SWM investment planning and budgeting, set up of a digital SWM planning and information software, are being applied on local level.
