The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking qualified interested firms in our Network to submit Expression of Interest(EOI) to participate in the upcoming solicitation for the following technical assistance: 

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

Deadline: 06 July 2023

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.

In case you are not a CTCN network member yet, you may still apply (further details are found in the document).

The complete details of the requirement will be provided in the tender documents that will be issued to bidders after this request for EOI is closed. 

For more information, please visit UNGM portal here and UNPD Intranet here.

Please note that this request for expression of interest (EOI) is not an invitation for submission of tenders. Its purpose is to identify companies that would be interested and eligible to participate in the solicitation when issued. Vendors that are deemed qualified upon completion of an objective evaluation of their EOI submission will receive the final tender solicitation documents.
