Seeking experts: CTCN projects in Malaysia and Pakistan

Publication date:

The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance projects:

Malaysia has developed national plans to enhance resilience against climate change, but the approach has been largely reactive and focused on structural mitigation measures such as canalization of rivers, raising river embankments and building multi-purpose dams. Better prediction is needed to enable proactive action to be taken.

The project will adapt carefully selected meteorological and hazard models for tropical conditions in the Iskandar Malaysia (IM) economic region and integrate them into the Iskandar Malaysia Multi-Hazard Platform (MHP). The platform will be used by the five local authorities in IM to support the management and communication of risks and strengthen the management of flash floods, landslides, sinkholes, strong winds, urban heat and air pollution in the region, thereby enhancing disaster resilience.

Pakistan has the world’s largest indigenous rainwater harvesting (runoff collection) system, known as the spate irrigation system, which diverts flood water through natural weir-regulated structures and irrigates roughly 0.3 million hectare of cultivated land. In some areas, the spate irrigation system is technically advanced. However, even though this technique is long practiced by several communities, it is often lacking in quality and sustainability. Most community-owned storm water harvesting ponds are poorly designed and vulnerable to contamination. 

Rainwater harvesting for artificial groundwater recharge and flood control in urban areas uses a technique that involves the construction of an inverted well that channels flood water to help recharge groundwater, while also stopping urban flooding. This technique offers both an opportunity for urban flood management and increased drought resilience in areas dependent upon rainwater.

The CTCN seeks experts to help with policy advocacy for technology transfer action plan of rain water harvesting and rain water harvesting for groundwater recharge at community and sub national level.

In case you are not a CTCN network member yet, you may still apply (further details are found in the document).

Please note that this request for expression of interest (EOI) is not an invitation for submission of tenders. Its purpose is to identify companies that would be interested and eligible to participate in the solicitation when issued. Vendors that are deemed qualified upon completion of an objective evaluation of their EOI submission will receive the final tender solicitation documents.
