Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

(i) The interim report for the study was delivered on 10 January 2020. It outlines background information including the generation, collection, transportation and treatment of MSW in BTH; how the pilot districts were selected and the survey results; an assessment of national and international case studies for regional MSW management; relevant laws and regulations in BTH; and key issues to be resolved in the project. Detailed assessment of the report findings is being undertaken.

(ii) The international study tour proceeded in November 2019 and comprised 3 senior officials from MoHURD, 1 each from Beijing and Tianjin Urban Management Commissions and 1 from Hebei DoHURD. The tour spent 1 week touring relevant sites and discussing with key officials, companies and agencies in Germany and the Netherlands. The experience and lessons learned will be documented in a study tour report (expected 25 January 2020), but will mainly include lessons on how to view regional MSW management as a broader system including improving Government and private sector working relationships; behavioral change of residents to improve separation; and, improved legislation and investment mechanisms.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services ADB will engage a consulting firm using output-based terms of reference, full technical proposal, and fixed budget selection method. This method is preferred so that all responding-firms can determine how they can best deliver the detailed outputs for the expected price, utilizing the best combination of inputs. The consulting firm will lead an international study tour involving six officials visiting two countries over 10 days and linking with knowledge partners. The firm will host all workshops and training sessions under the TA and will disseminate flyers and materials related to these.
