Following SCP/RAC work on guidelines to phase out single use plastic bags and guidelines to address single-use plastics through public procurement, the Centre has been mandated by the Barcelona Convention Contracting Parties to elaborate policy guidelines to reduce single-use plastics (SUP) in the Mediterranean.
Within this process, it is crucial to tailor the guidelines to specific situations in the Mediterranean context. Thus, the call for experts intends to gather information on the baseline situation of SUP in one country per non-EU Mediterranean sub-region, as well as on the potential impacts that policy measures could entail.
The country-specific Terms of Reference are available here:
In addition, another related call for international consultants to produce the baseline situation report in the Mediterranean, among other tasks, has been announced at SCP/RAC website. Within that contract, the methodology to be used by national consultants will be produced.
Interested applicants are invited to submit their bid by 20th April midnight (CET) following the instruction laid down in the ToR.
