The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to provide technical services related to development of technological tools to evaluate the impacts of, and vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in Uruguay’s coastal zone.

Recent regional studies conducted for Latin America and the Caribbean demonstrate that the incidence of extreme sea levels increased with a greater magnitude and frequency being noted in the coastal areas of the Caribbean and Río de la Plata.

The  objective  of  CTCN technical assistance  is  to assess  and  analyze  climate  impacts  on  beaches,  dune  zones,  coastal  erosion,  as  well  as risks of flooding and effects on ecosystems, residential areas, and costal and tourism infrastructure. This analysis  will  form  a  basis  for  developing  Uruguay’s  National  Adaptation  Plan.

Scope and activities:

1. Review of international experiences and proposal for marine dynamic variables to be used for coastal zone management;

2. Compilation of existing relevant databases and validation of the marine variables with the Uruguayan authorities;

3. Analysis of the effect of climate change and variability in Uruguay;

4. Evaluation of the effects of climate change on Uruguay’s coastal zone;

5. Training of national technicians in monitoring these threats and their possible consequences;

6. A series of Monitoring and Evaluation documents.

Complete Offer must be submitted via the UNIDO e-Procurement portal https://procurement.unido.org  by 3 April 2017, 17:00 Vienna, Austria time.

In  case  you  are  not  a  CTCN  network  member  yet,  you  may  bid  for  implementation  of  the  technical  assistance,  subject  to  the  condition  that  you  submit  your  completed  application  for  CTC Network membership before the bid closure and the same is acknowledged by the CTCN.
