The Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform an independent environmental and social assessment of two small multi-purpose dams in the Mara River Basin of Tanzania. Responses are due March 25.
The Mara River Basin Management Project already is in advanced stages of recruiting a consultant to undertake feasibility studies for the two projects. NBI's Nile Equatorial Lakes Subsidiary Action Program (NELSAP) envisages preparation of an investment project through feasibility studies for multi-purpose regional water storage infrastructure that could include hydroelectric power, flood control, water supply, irrigation, fisheries, and recreation.
The latest solicitation seeks consultants to undertake detailed environmental and social assessments and preparation of environmental and social management plans and resettlement action plans for the two projects. The work is to require seven months beginning in September 2011.
Expressions of interest, an original and three copies in English, are due to the address below by 10 a.m. March 25, labeled "Expression of Interest for Consultancy Services for Undertaking Independent Environmental and Social Assessment for two Multi-purpose Small Dams in the Mara River Basin."
