The Government of Botswana (GoB), through the Department of Energy (DOE), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are implementing a project titled “Promoting production and utilization of Biogas from Agro-waste in South-Eastern Botswana (Biogas Project)”. The Biogas Project seeks to facilitate low-carbon investments in the production and utilization of biogas from agro-waste in South-Eastern Botswana. The project aims to assist the government through the following three components:
- Institutional strengthening and capacity development;
- Facilitation and establishment of biogas plants; and
- Setting up of utilization and knowledge platforms.
The Biogas Project aims to complete the construction and operationalisation of 200 small scale biogas digesters by end of 2021. Currently 30 digesters have been completed and 170 are outstanding. To that end, the Government of Botswana through the Department of Energy and with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) wishes to engage an experienced consultant to facilitate and supervise the construction and deliver the remaining digesters within 6 months.
The Consultant will be responsible for managing fifty-five (55) trained masons to construct and operationalise 170 digesters. Each mason will have a contract with the Consultant, binding him/her to complete construction as per specified requirements. UNDP will have a contract only with the Consultant, and will make payments to the Consultant based on completed and operational digesters as well as professional fees of Consultant
