Background

UNDP is working with the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency on GEF project development to support transformation of Sharm El-Sheikh City into a green city.  The overall project objective of the project will be to turn Sharm El Sheikh into a model integrated and ecologically sustainable tourism city of national and international importance through the adoption of further low-carbon technologies, good waste management practices and a further-enhanced protection of its natural capital.  The project concept is based on a vision of the Green Sharm Initiative that the Government has developed for the city in 2010. This will be achieved through a holistic approach including four key components, namely: reduced carbon emissions, sustainable water supply, effective waste management and healthy biodiversity in particular coral reefs.

UNDP will recruit an international expert for project formulation to prepare the project document and full proposal with all required annexes in time for submission.  Since it is a multi-disciplinary project, the project formulation expert will receive technical inputs from three International Consultants on biodiversity, waste management and environmental safeguards as well as a national consulting firm to support in collection of baseline data and identification of local context.

UNDP seeks to recruit an International Consultant (IC) to draft the section for a GEF full-sized Project in the area of sound management of (Persistent Organic Pollutants-Pesticides (POPs), chemicals in products, plastic and organic/inorganic Municipal Solid Waste in Sharm El Sheik. The IC will initiate an analysis in the respective fields and design the relevant interventions, in consultation with lead and support experts, and all partners, of the future GEF Full-Size Project within the eligible areas of the GEF- 7 Cycle, Chemicals and Waste Focal Area and identification of scale-up opportunities.

Waste streams in Sharm El-Sheikh includes plastic containing PVC or flame retardants, products and packaging designed with harmful additives or heavy metals reaching to municipal waste.  Introduction of waste prevention and diversion for productive use will be the centerpiece of the future programme with consideration of reverse derived fuel options from inorganic Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) parts and specifically plastic residues Organic MSW streams as related to methane generation and disposal are also of interest in the project design. Appropriate segregation and minimization of organic parts by leveraging resources for the introduction of bio-reactors for compost and fuel, and minimization of methane generation at landfills.
