Solid Waste Management

Sustainability has moved from being a buzzword among the ‘greens’ to a mandatory aspect of urban planning, And solid waste management in urban areas is a factor that affects not just current living conditions, but sustainability of the urban center as well. Our experience in the SWM Sector ranges from preparation of strategy and action plans, preparation of Detailed Project Reports to development of treatment and disposal facilities (including those under PPP framework). iDeCK was involved in the development of India’s first scientific landfill facility under a PPP framework. We have been involved in structuring and developing projects across the entire value chain of SWM including collection, transportation, treatment and disposal. We have assisted Karnataka and other State Governments in India and the Governments of Sri Lanka, Maldives and Bangladesh in preparation of toolkits to enable implementation of solid waste management projects through PPP. Assessment of service delivery levels, gap assessment, investment requirements, assessment of municipal finances etc. have been part of iDeCK’s services in many projects. Many of the assignments have been undertaken for multi-lateral agencies such as the World Bank Group (Water and Sanitation Program, IFC) and the Asian Development Bank. iDeCK has also assisted setting of tariff structures for SWM services in Maldives and carried out capacity strengthening programs in selected State institutions for delivering training to government officials in India and abroad (Maldives, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka) to be able to conceive of, identify, design, bid out, contract, monitor and manage PPP projects in SWM.

Sanitation

Sanitation, one of the most basic necessities of human settlements, is directly linked to other aspects of development including
improved health, environment and natural resource management. With over 53% of India’s population
having no access to safe and affordable sanitation as per the Census of 2011, there is a huge
challenge for administrators to ensure complete coverage of the same in a well-regulated and
sustainable manner. With huge expenses involved in construction and maintenance of the mechanical
infrastructure and limited financing available to make the operations feasible, it is imperative
to explore and formulate alternative mechanisms to ensure that even the most vulnerable segments
of the society have a sustainable access to sanitation services. Other issues of sanitation in
terms of adverse perception & behaviour towards sanitation, lack of strong and enforceable
regulatory mechanism and limited market against huge demand of services have staggered the growth
of the sector. Though several schemes and programs have been formulated to tackle these issues
in the past, implementation on grass root levels is far from achieving intended targets. Hence,
the solution is to have a multidimensional approach at every level of the project life cycle
to ensure successful implementation of sanitation interventions. iDeCK in its initiative towards
supporting infrastructure development, has been assisting various authorities including public
administrations, multilateral banks/development agencies, foundations and research organizations
in assessing and improving the legal & regulatory frameworks for sanitation services as well
as in configuring and developing sustainable models for implementation. We understand the entire
ecosystem of both solid as well as liquid sanitation, hurdles for implementation of projects,
financing, regulating and managing of services etc. The range of services offered include:

  1. conducting detailed sector specific studies
  2. policy formulation
  3. enablement initiatives like development of toolkits
  4. development of manuals
  5. implementation support in terms of city-level planning, project formulation, development
    of strong performance based contractual frameworks
  6. capacity building of stakeholders

Our main strength lies is in bringing together different stakeholders with diverse objectives on a common platform for effective
project delivery

Urban Transport

The rapid rise in human and vehicular population in urban centres has propelled the need for an integrated, meticulously
planned public transport solution grows more urgent. Intra-city movement cannot be limited to
a single-mode solution. Multi-mode and integrated urban transport systems have become the need
of the hour not just to decongest the traffic, but also to provide reliable, seamless connectivity
across the city at affordable levels. This need is made more urgent dur to climate change factors.
Today, urban planners can choose from modes like bus rapid systems, suburban rail, light rail
transit, metro and mono rail systems. iDeCK is advising various entities from Government to private
sector and multilateral agencies in the urban transport across the advisory value chain framework
from carrying out developmental studies which involve demand and traffic assessment, identification
of suitable mode of transport system, product mix, phasing and project viability and preparation
of possible implementation structure under PPP options and model concession agreements. iDeCK
also has experience is carrying out Transit Oriented Development (TOD) studies which supplement
the existing revenue sources through the implementation of the urban transport system.
