Invites for Expressions of Interest: Waste Wise Cities Tool in Kiambu
UN-Habitat invites Expressions of Interest from Not-for–Profit Organizations and Governmental Institutions to conduct a waste assessment in Kiambu County by applying Waste Wise Cities Tool (WaCT), an assessment tool for city’s municipal solid waste management performance through SDG indicator monitoring methodology developed by UN-Habitat.
In addition to this, COVID-19 impact assessment in waste management chain will be conducted. Such waste management survey will include organizing a local stakeholder meeting as well as developing action plan and potential project through identifying the key intervention areas and infrastructure investment.
Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in African cities affects the vulnerable, especially informal waste pickers in hazardous conditions without sufficient protection. Protecting those people from infection is the important measures for preventing the further spread of and mitigates the wider impacts of COVID-19.
UN-Habitat, in collaboration with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will conduct data collection surveys to support municipal solid waste management, through analyzing the impact of COVID-19 and the linkages to opportunities for JICA’s potential support for urban areas in Kiambu. Building upon the “Waste Wise Cities”, and the established African Clean Cities Platform (ACCP), this project aims to conduct a survey to understand the impact of COVID-19 on Solid Waste Management; UN-Habitat informs the countermeasures toward the challenges, through conducting basic data collection on risks and idea of infection control in solid waste management.
