Overview of position

Libya faces a serious solid waste management problem, with grossly insufficient solid waste management (SWM) services nationwide, including unreliable local collection services in only 62% of municipalities, unsightly smelly solid waste piling up in the streets, landfills nearing capacity with mixed solid waste including hazardous and commercially recyclable materials, and health and environmental risks for urban residents and the entire country.  This problem is the result of population growth, urbanization, changing consumption habits and insufficient SWM; with capacity gaps exacerbated by the recent years of conflict and compounded by lack of incentives to improve service or efficiency. The Ministry of Local Government (MoLG) has recognized this problem and has proposed an appropriate strategy in response, based on decentralization of SWM responsibilities to municipalities and improved quality of services through expanded use of performance-based contracting with local public and private sector service providers.  Together with UNICEF, UNDP Libya is leading the development of the approved concept note into a UN Joint Project Document including a feasibility study.

The Fund will support UN Country Teams in investing in key initiatives that leverage public and private financing in order to advance the SDGs. These initiatives will provide a demonstration of concept and will be scalable both in country and elsewhere.

SWM Concept Note – now approved for development as a full project proposal – is innovative for Libya in its effort to improve the results and costs of public services (SWM) through harnessing private sector resources and competitive approaches.  The proposal contains the following major components:
  • Improved neighborhood collection of solid waste collection through private hauling firms operating under incentive-based contracts.  Improvement expected in frequency and lower cost.
  • Improved neighborhood hygiene and ease of collection due to resident deposit of household solid waste in more widely available collection bins
  • Increased recycling and reduced use of landfill through commercial recycling plant operate on basis of public-private partnership, most likely BOT
  • Decreased organic waste (household and market) and increased inexpensive energy through biogas processing facility to be operated on basis of public-private contract once established
Role objectives
The main objective of this initial assignment of the Recycling engineer/business analyst is to provide support and work in cooperation with the international expert on biogas to participate in the development of the joint proposal “Private-Public-Community Partnership for Solid Waste Management”, along with the rest of the team of consultants, specifically the:
  1. Solid waste separation and recycling
    1. Transit and sorting centers
    2. Business feasibility (business model and potential operators)
  2. Recycling plant
    1. Estimated volume of recyclable solid waste
    2. Technical requirements
    3. Business feasibility (business model and potential partners)
    4. PPP risks and conditions for effective engagement of private sector

The national consultant will be responsible to estimate source and scale of commercially relevant solid waste streams, confirm the engineering and market feasibility of available business models, identify potentially interested partners, and identify PPP risks and conditions for engagement of private operator.
The expected deliverables are: Feasibility study of commercial recycling plant; identify potentially interested parties; identify risks, specify PPP tender process, and contract conditions and administration, including budget requirements. The natinal consultant will also work with SWM and biogas engineers regarding business feasibility of those components.
