|Overview : |
The Government of Liberia (GOL), with the support of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), is designing a project to protect vulnerable coastal communities and infrastructure in the Monrovia Metropolitan Area from the impacts of the sea level rise (SLR) and related extreme events. The project will:
- Support building local technical/institutional capacity to manage climate change induced coastal flooding from the expected sea-level rise; and
- Implement critical soft and hard coastal protection measures to reduce the exposure of coastal communities in MMA to climate change induced sea-level rise and incidences of extreme precipitation events.
A time sensitive output of the proposed project is the implementation of critical (hard) infrastructure and (soft) ecosystem based measures to protect high priority economic and social assets from imminent threat of recurrent and worsening incidences of flooding.
Considering the imminent threat to key social and economic assets, the project will identify the most economically efficient and effective coastal protection measures and implement them as priority interventions in the short-run to protect key social and economic assets against storm surges and associated impacts. Considering the lack of existing knowledge and information related to coastal dynamics and its physical impacts, and the dearth of technical know-how, these interventions will need to be informed by detailed engineering, environmental and social assessments.
In view of above, UNDP, in collaboration with Government of Liberia (GoL) is seeking services from a highly qualified and well-recognised national expert with experience in climate change adaptation in coastal areas to support the project formulation development process. Accordingly, this procurement notice is placed seeking interested qualified individuals to review the attached terms of reference, confirm their interest as per attached the form to this notice and submit their offers to: firstname.lastname@example.org on before 18 September, 2018 indicating the subject matter and the number of this procurement notice.
