Context The GIZ “Support to a Sustainable Waste and Circular Economy” Project (WCE) aims to enable public and private actors to implement circular economy practices in Rwanda-s waste sector. It is part of the Rwandan-German Climate and Development Partnership that was signed by the Environmental Ministers of Rwanda and Germany in March 2022. One of the project-s key instruments is needs-based capacity development. The support aims to enhance and increase technical and organisational capacities and skills within the structures relevant for implementing approaches of circular economy in waste management. Through its support to the Ministry of Environment (MoE) and subordinate institutions, the WCE project provides these relevant state actors with technical and process-related advice regarding the development of instruments for implementing and operationalising policies, strategies, and plans for circular waste management. A specific focus lies on the cooperation between the public and private sector, which is taken into regard through initiating and moderating dialogues between state institutions and private enterprises. Furthermore, the WCE project is supporting private enterprises to develop financially viable business models and access finance for inclusive, climate-smart waste management and a circular economy. A major enabling factor is an improved financial environment for WCE activities, including access to finance, setting up subsidized target programs, and a higher educational level of financial institutions and intermediaries for the specific needs of WCE business approaches. An improved regulatory framework, for example by enforcing common standards in waste management, would also create further markets for WCE services. The project provides training measures to develop entrepreneurial capacity and is initiating a call for ideas in selected value chains to support and identify innovative, inclusive, and climate-smart circular approaches and to develop the necessary business cases that would showcase the potentials for doing business in the WCE sector. Depending on their market maturity, selected innovative project ideas receive targeted advice and coaching to develop their ideas or support to access financial grants and technical support from a financing facility that is being developed. Finally, the WCE project aims to pilot national strategies and plans for circular waste management in a selected satellite city located in the Kigali metropolitan area. Once the satellite city has been selected, the project will address the local government departments responsible for circular waste management and advise them on the implementation of national strategies and guidelines for circular waste management at the local level. This will involve the development of an action plan based on a selected waste stream, such as organic waste. The experience gained with piloting will be fed into the national dialogue process. As part of these interventions, the WCE project is exploring the potential for innovative approaches in different sectors to reduce waste streams. These include but are not limited to a more efficient and effective use of materials in production processes, new and alternative uses of by-products, strengthened logistic chains, changed products- designs towards more sustainability, as well as general reuse, repair, refurbishing and recycling of products. This tender specifically focuses on the agri-food sector and selected agricultural value chains. The WCE project wants to interact with actors from different value chains, discuss the relevance and importance of the topic, and support actors with implementing low-cost circular innovations that will reduce waste outputs in their relevant production processes and value / supply chains. To realize this, the bidder (also referred to in this document as the contractor) shall plan, organize and conduct several workshops on circularity in specific agricultural value chains. In addition, the consultant shall provide dedicated coaching to selected companies that show both the motivation and the potential to implement concrete circular solutions in production processes that will lead to reductions in waste output, as described in Chapter 2. 2. Tasks to be performed by the contractor The contractor is responsible for providing the following services: Prepare and implement 6 workshops to increase awareness and build up knowledge on circular economy topics in the agricultural value chains / agri-food sector.
