CALL FOR TENDER: BACKGROUND DATA COLLECTION for PLASTIC RECYCLING TECHNOLOGY GAP ASSESSMENT

Caritas Czech Republic (CCR) in Mongolia is implementing the EU-funded project “Sustainable Plastic Recycling in Mongolia” in partnership with Environment and Security of Center (ESCM), TG Masaryk Water Research Institute (WRI), Mongolian Sustainable Development Bridge (MSDB) and Ecosoum (ES). The main objective of the project is to contribute to economic prosperity and poverty reduction and support the development of a green economy and the transition towards a low-carbon, resource-efficient and circular economy in Mongolia. The specific objectives of the project are to promote sustainable production and consumption (SCP) patterns by supporting MSMEs in adopting SCP practices, and to create an enabling environment to strengthen the implementation of national SCP policies and assist stakeholders in harvesting the benefits of SCP.   As the project will develop a “Technology Gap Assessment” for plastic recycling MSMEs in Mongolia, it is a priority to conduct a research to collect background data.
