The Climate Technology Centre is seeking a member of the CTCN Network to provide technical services in order to asses suitable flood mitigation measures in Tbilisi, Georgia. 

Flash floods and mudflows occurring on small rivers as a result of heavy rains impact various parts of Tbilisi, causing heavy damage and/or human casualties. Recommendations for appropriate actions to prevent flooding of the Tsavkisiskhevi River are therefore sought. 

The scope of work anticipated in this technical assistance includes creation of an inventory of available data and selection of suitable methodology and technology for use; modelling of flood scenarios including influence of climate change; a proposal for suitable measures for flood mitigation and adaptation in the pilot catchment; and technology and knowledge transfer activities.  The results of the assistance will enable appropriate contingency planning for extreme flood events, based on actual flood hazard maps. 

The completed offer must be submitted via the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) e-Procurement portal https://procurement.unido.org  by 26 May 2017, 17:00 Vienna, Austria time.

Please note: In the event that your institution is not yet a CTCN  network  member,  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 decide to 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.
