Uzbekistan: Solid Waste Management Improvement Project

Sovereign Project | 45366-003

Summary

The purpose of this PPTA is to thoroughly test and prepare, through the Investment Program, establishment of modern SWM systems and remediation of old 'truck and dump' practices in uzbekistan cities and regions, which is poised with challenges. The majority of municipal SW stream in Uzbekistan is not segregated, it is poorly colected, and often simply ilegally dumped to inappropriate sites. Hence, technical, economic and financial feasibility will focus on testing least cost technical solutions based on international standards , which operate on the principles of waste minimization and material recycling. Such systems will be also structured to achieve efficient collection, transfer and disposal of residual waste that meet acceptable standards of environmental protection. Finally, the PPTA will ensure completion of safeguards assessments and project readiness.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy A technical assistance package is required to conduct a full feasibility assessment of the envisaged SWM intervention and project related due dilligence; it will also fully develop the Investment Program. These activities will include technical, economic, financial and governance due dilligence. It will also cover initial environmental examinations and formulate any potentially required resettlement plans. An environmental assessment and review framework, especially given that formalized environmental awareness towards waste flows such as 'reduce, reuse, recycle' that should translate into best operational practices, namely a dedicated waste separation / waste recycling programs, do not exist in Uzbekistan at this stage, will be prepared for the Investment Program.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The Ministry of Finance (MoF) will be the executing agency and the Uzbekistan Communal Services Agency (UCSA) will be implementing the Program. UCSA also implements ADB's ongoing WSS projects and is experienced and familiar with ADB's procedures and requirements. The Government will follow ADB's policies including the Procurement Guidelines, Loan Disbursement Handbook, and Guidelines on the Use of Consultants during Investment Program implementation. To facilitate timely implementation, ADB will consider advance contracting for detailed design work. Retroactive financing may also be explored on some preliminary eligible expenditure, which would include recruitment of design engineering consultants and procurement of SWM equipment.
