Country: Switzerland
Organization: International Organization for Migration
Closing date: 7 Mar 2021

1. Background

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. IOM acts with its partners in the international community to assist in meeting the growing operational challenges of migration management; advance understanding of migration issues; encourage social and economic development through migration and uphold the human dignity and well-being of migrants.

IOM recognizes that a healthy environment is inherently linked to the safety, security and wellbeing of migrants and societies. As part of IOM’s mission to uphold the well-being of migrants and communities, IOM made an institutional commitment in 2017 to mainstream environmental sustainability in its strategies, projects and programs, and facility management and operations. This commitment is in line with the environment-related commitments of the Sustainable Development Goals, the environmental sustainability related commitments of the United Nations and the latest Strategy for Sustainability Management in the United Nations System 2020-2030. To achieve these objectives, IOM launched its global Environmental Sustainability Programme, with a focus on three key environmental management areas: clean energy, water and waste management.

Two of IOM’s key commitments are related to the clean energy transition: enabling access to clean energy in the organization’s facilities and operations as well as in its projects, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, while ensuring environmentally sound management of waste associated with such transition, in accordance with Sustainable Development Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. Given the humanitarian sector’s and IOM’s vision on the clean energy transition articulated through the sector-wide initiative, the Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy in Displacement Settings, and the increasing distribution of pico-solar and solar products in its operations, IOM aims to ensure that challenges and opportunities related to e-waste derived from solar products are systematically addressed through a lifecycle approach and in partnership with relevant entities, including the private sector.

Most refugees and internally displaced person (IDP) camps have no access to the electricity grid or energy sources other than biomass. In order to meet the energy needs of the camp population, humanitarian agencies have been supplying off-grid products such as solar lanterns, solar streetlights and solar home systems. These products get damaged or stop functioning, with the methods for disposal generally not environmentally friendly, nor cost effective, and additionally can have impact on human health. The unregulated discard of electronic and electrical waste (e-waste) is among the fastest growing waste streams in camps and camp-like settings, with no clarity on the environmental, human health and economic impacts of missing recycling and reuse opportunities. IOM, along with other humanitarian stakeholders, recognize the urgent need for a circular economy for renewable energy to enable alignment with the frameworks and commitments previously outlined. However, attempts to address this issue have to date been adhoc and siloed within individual organizations.

2. The Project and Innovation Partnership

Given IOM’s key role and extensive humanitarian operations, IOM aims to tackle the challenge of e-waste management in displacement settings, in coordination with UNHCR, through the Innovation Norway-funded project Greening humanitarian responses through recovery, repair, and recycling of solar products in camps – the E-Waste Project (“the Project”). The Project specifically looks at creating a circular economy for solar lanterns and solar home systems and their accessories that have been distributed in IDP and refugee camps. The overall objective of the Project is to identify solutions that reduce and manage e-waste, while prolonging energy access, creating employment opportunities, supporting alternative forms of livelihoods, increasing knowledge transfer and promoting environmental sustainability.

Significantly, the Project also aims to transform e-waste policies for humanitarian organizations and UN agencies, ensuring systemic change within the humanitarian sector with the ability to transform the way solar products are procured and manufactured, repaired, recovered and recycled in the long-term. In addition, the Project also has the objective of providing evidence to replicate the solutions in other camps and camp-like settings, creating a global reach for the proposed solution, and possibly also to scale up beyond solar products and their accessories to other types of electronic waste.

Research (Phase 1) for the Project was undertaken March to November 2020, which highlighted key findings (Annex 1), including a list of potential innovation opportunities for creating a circular economy for e-waste in displacement settings (Annex 1, page 3). Implementation (Phase 2) will include a pilot trial of a proposed solution in Kakuma refugee camp, in Kenya selected based on the findings of the Phase 1 research. . The Project recognizes (further confirmed in Phase 1) the importance of partnerships to deliver on the potential innovation opportunities. Partnerships enable a multi-faceted and holistic approach to the e-waste issue by creating synergies between different aspects of the waste stream and capitalizing on, and growing, previously siloed solutions of various partners. This Call for Innovation Partners (CfIP) aims to foster these partnerships between humanitarian organizations and relevant private companies and/or social enterprises to implement a pilot of a solution(s) to be determined by the CfIP.

Simultaneously to implementation (Phase 2), awareness raising through advocacy will be conducted (Phase 3) through the IOM Environmental Sustainability Programme’s involvement in global, sector-wide networks such as the Environment and Humanitarian Action Network (EHAN), the United Nations’ Greening the Blue initiative and the Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy in Situations of Displacement (GPA); and through IOM’s Global WASH Support Unit’s involvement in the Global WASH Cluster, among others, with the aim to encourage transformative wide-spread change. In addition, the Project findings will be promoted at conferences, sharing through organizational newsletters and social media. Monitoring visits will be undertaken throughout the pilot to assess its effectiveness and make adjustments as required to facilitate ongoing learning and adaptation.

3. Benefits of Innovative Partnerships

IOM seeks to form strategic partnerships with legal entities from the private sector/social enterprises/NGOs and/or CSOs (herein after referred to as “partners”), with the aim of developing and strengthening programmes in support of its mandates and economic development in countries where IOM operates. Through this CfIP, we invite partners to submit proposals to implement solutions to step-change e-waste management in humanitarian settings.

Upon selection, partners will be expected to contribute to the development of the implementation of the E-Waste Project pilot trial with their expertise, networks and resources. It is expected that there will be significant long-term benefits for partners and local communities in terms of access, environmental preservations, and scaled effects of sustainable social, economic and health impacts, as well as involvement in shaping the future landscape of solar within camps.

IOM, along with UNHCR will bring expertise of the humanitarian sector, networks, camps access and overall management of the Project. IOM also has funding to support the logistic related expenses likely to be incurred by partners such as for the collection of materials, camp site development, spare parts and development of earning and visibility materials, to the extent the funding benefits the project.

The partnership(s) is based on fair and equitable sharing of costs, resources and knowledge. Each partner should contribute to the extent they have capacity, with recognition of the shared benefits and risks of their contribution.

4. Process

The process to form the partnership(s) consists of the following seven steps. The timeline for the steps is outlined in Section 8 – Timeline.

Step I: Review the CfIP: Interested potential partners are encouraged to carefully review the CfIP and verify that they comply with the eligibility criteria.

Step II: Information session: Interested potential partners complying with the eligibility criteria outlined in the CfIP, are encouraged to participate in IOM’s information session which will explain the project objectives and this CfIP in more detail. The information session will take place through Microsoft Teams. Interested potential partners should send names and email addresses of all participating individuals from their organization to washsupport@iom.int by 11.59 pm 29 January 2021.

Step III: Ideation workshop: In addition to the information session, IOM invites interested potential partners complying with the eligibility criteria outlined in the CfIP, to participate in IOM’s ideation workshop, which will allow interested potential partners to come together and generate innovative ideas for solutions for the e-waste issue. The workshop will be facilitated by IOM and will include a range of activities designed to challenge current thinking, explore alternatives and think creatively, sparking innovative thinking for proposal submission. The ideation workshop will take place online. Potential partners should send names and email addresses of all participating individuals for the ideation workshop from their organization to washsupport@iom.int by 11.59 pm 29 January 2021.

Step IV: Submit a proposal: After the ideation workshop, interested potential partners are encouraged to submit a proposal detailing their proposed solution(s) as further outlined in section 4 below to the washsupport@iom.int, before the submission deadline. Please ensure that you have provided all the requested information and supporting documents.

Step V: IOM reviews the received proposals: IOM reviews all proposals and notifies potential partners if additional information is required. In some cases, IOM might invite selected partners to participate in an online interview for IOM to better understand the proposed solution.

Step VI: Selection result: Based on a complete assessment of all the proposals including supporting documents and interviews (if applicable), IOM will select the partner(s) it wishes to collaborate with. All potential partners who have submitted proposals will be notified whether or not they have been selected.

Step VII: Partnership agreement and pilot implementation: A partnership agreement will be signed by selected partner(s) and IOM, with additional planning discussions regarding the proposed solution(s) between partners and IOM experts prior to pilot implementation.

5. Partnership proposal

Potential partners are encouraged to submit a partnership proposal that reflects one or more (or other) opportunities identified in Phase 1 (Annex 1, page 3), based on their current experience and expertise. IOM may select multiple partners to encourage a collaboration across multiple areas of the waste stream (recovery, repair, recycling, reuse).
