The Climate Technology Centre is seeking proposals for the technical assistance project in Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Palau and Solomon Islands:
Capacity development to address risks in coastal zones. Deadline 19 March 2019, 17.00 Vienna time.

The Centre is seeking experts to provide technical support and training for personnel from the four target countries to collate available data and information, develop standardised metadata for bathymetric and coastal surveys, and integrate these data into products (standardised bathymetric grids and digital elevation grids) with appropriate quality control and identify any data gaps.
