- 1st August 2022
MECS is seeking a consultant/s to conduct research on repair and end of life practices relating to cooking appliances in Nepal, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Zambia, Tanzania, and Bangladesh.
Each country should be treated as a separate submission.
The assignment should be completed in two stages.
Stage 1: Contextual study and customer behaviour survey – to understand current behaviour and practices when an item fails, what options are perceived to be available, what drivers lie behind actual behaviour, and what barriers exist to more sustainable behaviour that would extract value from failed devices.
Stage 2: End of life ecosystem mapping – to identify the comprehensive range of stakeholder engaged in handling materials at all stages of end of life pathways, to assess the capability and capacity of each, to estimate materials flow volumes handled by each, to identify barriers constraining the operations of each, and to assess the influence of prevailing policies.
Proposals should be received no later than by 23:59 GMT on 23 August 2022.
