UN-Habitat is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) from interested implementing partners for the category 2 content development of the online course on the selected themes of waste management.

The Waste (Wise) Academy is an initiative by UN-Habitat under its Waste Wise Cities (WWC) program to equip decision-makers and practitioners with knowledge and tools to assess current solid waste management challenges and to prepare feasible strategies and actions towards more sustainable, safe, accessible, and innovative solid waste management in their city.

One component of the Waste Academy is an online course, which will build capacity of the WWC stakeholders on different solid waste management topics. UN-Habitat has conducted a needs assessment study to identify the topics to be covered in the online courses. The current project is to develop 6 modules of approximate 2 hours each by December 2020. Each module will be a mix of recorded lectures, videos, quizzes, reading material, all structured to achieve the learning objectives.

The work should be carried out under the guidance of UN-Habitat’s instructional designer. Further, the implementing partner may be a not for profit organization, government or public institution, university or research institution.

Funding Information

UN-Habitat will provide funds to the tune of $40,000 based on delivery of outputs for this work.

The EOI should be not more than 10 pages and contain, but not be limited to the following:

  • The overall background of the institution particularly about capacity and past work in content designing;
  • Quotation for the category 2 content development, module wise and if possible, with the bifurcation of each task and an aggregated quotation for the 6 modules.
  • Work plan and schedule including dependencies and data requirements and assumptions on roles and responsibilities.
  • The support/ contribution the organization is willing to make including, cash and in-kind;
  • The support expected in-kind from UN-Habitat.
  • Governance and organizational structure; experience and qualifications of key professional staff and infrastructure facilities of the organization;
  • A certified true copy of the original Audited Account Statement for the last two years; and latest annual report.
  • Implementing partners who can demonstrate the effective delivery and appropriate quotation for the task will be given preference.
