Hydro-economic analyses sought for countries' water management

The World Bank invites expressions of interest from consultants to perform hydro-economic analyses to ensure sustainable water resource management by the bank's various client countries. Responses are due January 10, 2013.

The World Bank's International Finance Corp. (IFC) has been engaged in such work in India, Jordan, South Africa, Mexico, and Mongolia and plans to engage in four to five new countries in the next two years. IFC is working with the 2030 Water Resources Group, a public-private-civil society partnership that helps advance water resource management for economic growth while respecting social and environmental issues.

The bank seeks consultants to provide a water resource fact base, assessing the magnitude of a country's water challenge, to advance water reform discussions. Data is to include availability of water for food production, energy and power, industrialization, and urban growth. Potential market benefits and risks are to be estimated and solutions proposed.

IFC intends to award a framework agreement for one year with two possible option years. Firms would be issued specific assignments under the agreement.

Expressions of interest are due by 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, January 10, in English, electronically via the World Bank's eConsultant2 Internet site, https://wbgeconsult2.worldbank.org/wbgec/index.html. A solicitation notice is available on the website under Business Opportunities, Selection No. 1090067.
