DHInfrastructure LLC – Quatro Posicoes – CD

DHInfrastructure LLC, an economic consulting firm has been shortlisted for an Asian Development Bank Assignment (TA-8750 TIM: Urban Services Improvement Sector Project – Contingent Valuation (Willingness to Pay) for Water Supply and Solid Waste Management Services). We are seeking an individual (freelance or associated with a firm) who can fill this position below:

(i)     Study Coordinator (1 person-month, national). The consultant will hold a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field such as social science from a recognized university. The consultant should have at least 5 years of experience in the design and implementation of household surveys in Timor-Leste, including demonstrated experience working on externally-financed projects.

The consultant should have good spoken and written English skills.

Interested candidates should have Timorese nationality, and attach a CV in an email addressed to Deborah Ong atdeborah@dhinfrastructure.com 

Terms of Reference for the Assignment:

  1. Background


(i)               The existing water supply and solid waste situation


  1. While 70% of Timor-Leste’s population lives in rural areas, the country’s urban centers are growing rapidly. Dili, the country’s capital city and main commercial center, has a population of around 227,000. In recent years, the city has grown at an annual average rate of 4.2%, well above the national population growth rate of 2.4% over the same period.[1] This has contributed to emergence of growing informal settlements around Dili.


  1. Around 18,000 people in five target areas of Dili are now receiving 24-hour water supply as a result of investments undertaken under the ADB-supported Dili Urban Water Supply Sector Project (DUWSSP), scheduled for completion at the end of 2014. However, there is a need to expand access to safe and reliable piped water supplies. Only 36% of households in Dili have a legal piped water supply connection. Service is intermittent, with water supplied for an average of 6 hours daily. A growing urban population, dilapidated infrastructure, leakage and pilferage have hampered efforts to expand access to improved water supply services to address high rates of water-borne disease.


  1. Illegal dumping and burning of waste is common, with around a third of waste in Dili being disposed on in this manner. Discarding of solid waste in drains provides breeding grounds for mosquitoes and contributes to flooding. Unsegregated solid waste is disposed of at the Tibar dumpsite, which is uncovered, and lacks engineered environmental protections systems, such as basal lining systems or leachate and landfill gas collection systems. Formal recycling systems are not well-developed, with only a few private operators involved in the recycling of cardboard, scrap metal and aluminum cans.


  1. The government is currently implementing a $550 million sanitation and drainage investment program over the period 2013-2025. However, to fully realize the benefits of these investments, in terms of improvements to public health and environmental quality, and flood risk reduction, upgrading of water supply and solid waste management services is critical.


  1. The National Directorate for Water Services (DNSA) within the Ministry of Public Works (MOP) is responsible for water sector regulation and service delivery. Responsibility for solid waste management in Dili is split between: (i) the National Directorate of Basic Sanitation (DNSB) under MOP, which is responsible for solid waste regulation and disposal, and (ii) the Dili District Administration (DDA) under the Ministry of State Administration (Estatal), which is responsible for solid waste collection and street cleaning. The private sector provides solid waste collection services around Dili under contract with DDA; however there is significant scope for improving contract design and monitoring to strengthen efficiency and collection coverage. Water tariffs are only levied on those households that receive a 24-hour supply. Solid waste collection and disposal services are provided free of charge.


  1. Expanding access to safe and reliable 24-hour water supply is a key objective of the government’s Strategic Development Plan (SDP) 2011-2030. The 2012 National Sanitation Policy outlines the overall vision for a clean and hygienic environment, and calls for strategies to support the reduction, reuse and recycling of solid waste. The Timor Leste Country Partnership Strategy 2011-2015 identifies improved water supply services in urban centers as a priority area for ADB support.[2]
