United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is looking for member of the CTCN Network that can provide technical services related to catalysing low cost green technologies for sustainable water service delivery in Kenya.
Water services available for the poor in Kenya are often inadequate, unsafe and unsustainable. Arid and Semi-Arid areas in the Northern part of Kenya and poor peri-urban areas are particularly vulnerable, characterized by low level of water service provision and acute water scarcity, where water demand considerably surpasses availability. In addition, climate change is expected to further impact water availability and infrastructure, which highlights the need for improved water access in underserved areas and a more sustainable and strategic management of water resources.
The objective of the overall technical assistance is to catalyze low cost green technologies for sustainable water service delivery in the Northern and ASAL regions of Kenya. This technical assistance is based on a request submitted by the CTCN Kenyan National Designated Entity (NDE) and on a response plan developed by UNEP DTU Partnership in coordination with the NDE and request proponent.
Within the framework of this Contract, which shall be concluded within five months (January to May 2017), the Contractor, in coordination with and support of the Consortium Partner lead of the Response Plan - UNEP DTU Partnership – UDP - will produce the following three main outputs:
- Identification of potential private sector actors and Public Private Partnerships (PPP) within the water sector for the deployment of green water technologies
- Capacitation of public and private sector actors to engage in PPP
- Development of a Public Private Partnership business model in collaboration with relevant stakeholders
Complete Offer must be submitted via the UNIDO e-Procurement portal by 10 October 2016, 17:00 Vienna, Austrian time.
