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.
