1. The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) is undergoing a new project aimed at reducing the environmental impact on cities in South East Asia of plastic waste pollution and leakage into the marine environment. The project will develop an innovative digital tool to assist local governments in South East Asia to monitor and visualize plastic waste leakage with a view to: i) prevent this waste from entering water streams and the ocean; and ii) improve identification of waste generation hot spots and improve their management at the municipal level. The project is expected to be completed in March 2021. 2. In this regard, UNESCAP is exploring the global market, to assess availability of credible vendors who have the capability, experience and a sound technical team to provide professional services in developing the tool and supporting the capacities of four South East Asian cities, to be selected by UNESCAP, in applying the tool to support more sustainable and effective municipal solid waste management systems. 3. Interested vendors should share relevant documentation pertinent to the development of this tool with their response to this RFI and may be contacted to participate in a videoconference with UNESCAP to share information on different methodologies, approaches and technology options for the implementation of the project's objectives.
