The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to provide technical services in order to design scale up of climate resilient waste management and energy capture technologies in small and medium livestock farms in Ecuador. 

Ecuador has  requested  technical  assistance  from  CTCN  to  develop  an  implementation  plan  to  design,  pilot  and deploy  sustainable  management  models  that  harness  energy  from  the  manure  of livestock  production units.

Scope and activities:

•    A baseline to serve as a diagnostic of the country’s agriculture sector and the potential demand  for biodigesters among small and medium producers

•    A  technological  and  financial  analysis  of  the  biodigester  models  developed  and  structured  by livestock  subsector  and  region

•    An  analysis  of  the  potential  for  contributions  of  biodigesters  in  Ecuador  to  adaptation  and mitigation  of  climate  change 

•    A suite of communication materials tailors to the specific set of actors in the livestock production chain

Complete Offer must be submitted via the UNIDO e-Procurement portal https://procurement.unido.org by 7 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. Furthermore, the contract award – should your bid be selected – is conditional to your network membership application having been successfully approved by the Director of CTCN. Should the bidder partner with another institution to deliver the services described in these Terms of Reference, it is expected that the partner institution also joins the CTC Network.
