Armenia: Solid Waste Management Improvement Investment Program

Sovereign Project | 45398-003

Summary

A Project Preparatory Technical Assistance (PPTA) is required to conduct a feasibility assessment and related due diligence; it will also fully develop the Investment Program. Advisory services for SWM strategy, regulatory framework, and capacity development will be supported through the projects under the MFF. In addition a Policy Advisory Technical Assistance (PATA) is required to develop a SWM Road Map, essentially outlining the strategic directions being pursued and the rationale for sector investments (both physical and non-physical). PATA also provides a strategic context for SWM, defines a policy framework and further articulates the Investment Program

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB has recently completed a study of SWM market and practices in Armenia through a small scale regional TA (TA 7635-REG). The assessment indicates that there is a fairly robust rationale for a dedicated project. However, further in depth due diligence will be required to establish technical, economic, and financial parameters to guide the investments. Policy, institutional, regulatory, operational and financial risks that may impede effective SWM need to be carefully assessed. A detailed assessment of poverty, social and gender dimensions of SWM needs to be undertaken. Specifically, attitudinal and behavioral considerations will also be important as they impact waste collection and disposal. Based on the exploratory RETA assessment, all SWM investments are likely to be categorized as A for environmental safeguards; all tranches will likely be categorized A' for involuntary settlement. The PPTA will undertake initial environmental examinations and social safeguard assessments; (re)confirm the classification; and formulate environmental frameworks and resettlement plans as required.
