CTCN Call for Proposals - Technical Assistance in Mozambique

Row

Objective:
Publication date:
Mozambique water-energy-food

The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance project: 

Implementation of Water-Food-Energy nexus using digital technologies for local communities in Mozambique

The completed offer must be submitted via the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) e-Procurement portal https://procurement.unido.org

Deadline: 20 June 2022, 17:00 CET

Mozambique has a long coastline affected by extreme weather events such as cyclones. During the 2018-2021 period, cyclones Idai, Keneth, and Ana caused myriad deaths and injuries, alongside the destruction of homes, health units, schools, and crops. The impact of extreme events is predicted to worsen, affecting the most vulnerable sectors including agriculture, water resources and energy. Since the country is highly dependent on agriculture, it is imperative to implement smart agriculture practices that increase productivity, improve food security, bolster resilience, and restore degraded agro-ecosystems.

The objective of this technical assistance is to develop a fit for purpose system for one selected farm in the Zambezi Valley that includes aquaponic, biodigester, bio composting, and hydraulic management systems (including water storage and solar pumping integrated systems for drip irrigation). The assistance will diagnose the needs of local farmers and benchmark international best practices and develop a complete flowchart of the system including the collection and pumping of the water through the photovoltaic system, the use of integrated reservoirs for fish production coupled with horticulture (aquaponics), the generation of compost, and the generation of biogas and biofertilizers as well as organic food for the selected farm. The cost of the fit-for-purpose system will be estimated, and finally, training materials and workshops will be developed.
