Background of consultancy assignment/ project

Currently, plastic pollution has emerged as one of the biggest environmental challenges of our time. About 150 million tonnes of plastic waste are in the ocean, with another eight million added every year (Jambeck et al., 2015) and by 2050 there would be more waste than fish in ocean (World Economic Forum, 2016) if the consumers’ perception has not shifted toward a greener style. Viet Nam has ranked 4 in the top 5 countries discharged the most plastic waste into the ocean (Georgia University’s research, 2015).

WWF, as the leading conservation organization globally, has taken the plastic waste issue seriously. WWF has set the ambitious global target of reducing plastic leakage into the ocean by 50-100% by 2030 and WWF-Viet Nam is a key part of that initiative. To address the root-cause of the problem, we want to work with local level of provinces or cities, districts, involving public and private sector to build pioneer models in plastic reduction. This strategy is the key to WWF’s Plastic Smart Cities (PSC) program.

The project will be implemented in three (03) years from July 2018 to July 2021 at various cities in Viet Nam. It comprises three (03) objectives, focusing on (i) studying the overview of marine plastic litter in Viet Nam, (ii) building and delivering a behavior change communication program targeting consumer groups and the public; and (iii) involving three cities in signing up the PSC commitment to the WWF Plastic pollution free Cities Program and having policy changes in plastic waste management.

WWF is recruiting a Public Relations and Communication consultant(s) (hereinafter called the Consultant(s)) to produce and deliver the mobile exhibition booth at 03 selected cities of the project based on the designed concept.
