Implementation of improvements to the National Drought Monitor of Ecuador (MONSE) for the integration of a drought risk scenario module in Ecuador   

Deadline for submission: February 14, 2024

The purpose of this request for the provision of technical services is to identify a suitable implementation partner to implement the project in Ecuador. The project implementation will happen under the overall supervision of the CTCN. This technical assistance will contribute to:

  • Definition and prioritization for the incorporation of at least one additional indicator to those dy implemented in the current MONSE;
  • Generation and visualization of drought scenarios with time horizons of 3, 6, 9, and 12 months;
  • Extend the current resolution of MONSE (28 km) to the maximum possible;
  • The definition of an action/mitigation plan to increase the resilience of affected communities;
  • Definition and prioritization of specific products (such as newsletters; among others) for sectors of interest such as agriculture, energy, and drinking water, others;
  • Identification of volunteer observers in the framework of the Volunclima platform for the assessment and continuous improvement of MONSE;

Enhance the resilience of Suriname´s water supply system by modelling drought risks and developing a roadmap of prioritized alternatives for aquifer recharge

Deadline for submission: February 25, 2024

The primary objective of this Technical Assistance (TA) is to pinpoint areas most vulnerable to droughts and subsequent water variability and shortages through drought risk assessment and mapping. Subsequently, this data will be utilized to manage aquifer recharge (MAR) strategically, aiming to bolster water supply during dry spells and drought conditions by intentionally replenishing aquifers in regions facing the highest drought risk. This technical assistance aims to: 

  • Assess drought risk and water resources in Suriname;
  • Issue risk maps through Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software to identify the areas most at risk of droughts;
  • Mapping aquifers suitable for recharge;
  • Design a fully integrated system that will enable Suriname to recharge its aquifer in times of drought in a sustainable, clean, and safe manner;
  • Train national officers in the use of the drought prevention model, and the designed system to manage the water resources in the aquifer in times of drought;

Promoting sustainable irrigation technologies: a water-energy-food (WEF) nexus perspective towards reducing climate risk from small farmers in high climate risk in the municipalities of Rabinal, and San Miguel Chicaj in the Dry Corridor of Baja Verapaz

Deadline for submission: February 26, 2024

The objective of this technical assistance is to establish suitable systems and business models for the deployment of Photovoltaic Solar Irrigation Systems (SPIS), specifically targeting small farmers and women in the dry corridor of Guatemala. The technical assistance will encompass a comprehensive approach, including the development of SPIS, comparative evaluations of existing technologies, sensor irrigation, irrigation planning, and satellite observation.

Anticipated outcomes of this initiative include:

  • Evaluate current irrigation practices and validate appropriate technological options tailored for small farmers, culminating in the design of suitable irrigation business models.
  • Promote well-coordinated and integrated planning and management of a water-energy-food model to enhance resilience systems. This involves interventions to improve sustainability within the nexus of water, energy, and food.
  • Provide training for smallholder farmers in the integrated management of water resources, sustainable agricultural practices, and the incorporation of renewable energy. The aim is to enhance energy efficiency and implement water supply technologies that safeguard livelihoods.
