The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking proposals to assist the Bahamas with developing a national framework for the standardization of stalls and procedures for a climate smart street side vendor.
There is a consensus of the growing problem with street and roadside vendors in The Bahamas. Vendors are selling their goods without the necessary permits and breaching Covid-19 orders. The government of The Bahamas is taking steps to bring street vendors into the formal economy, with the development of enabling policies and fostering agriculture production. Currently, 90% of the food is imported in The Bahamas and there is an urgent need to become more self-sufficient.
The overall objective of the technical assistance is to build resilience in the agricultural sector to improve food distribution, and to an extent, improve food security.
Deadline to express the interest: 8 July, 2021
For this call, the CTCN has initiated a new procurement process through the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON). Interested vendors should forward their Expressions of Interest (EOI) along with the signed vendor response form and qualification documents (included in the attachment) addressing the pre-qualification criteria to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to: email@example.com.
