It is estimated that approximately 72 person-months of consulting services (24 person-months international and 48 person-months domestic) will be required. The proposed international experts will include a team leader-economist-institutional specialist, agriculture economist, pastureland ecologist, agronomist, land improvement specialist, rural engineer, environment specialist, social development specialist, and others as needed. The proposed domestic experts will include an economist-deputy team leader, institutional specialist, irrigation systems specialist, agronomist, sustainable land management, agriculture-livestock specialist, agribusiness specialist, rural sociologist, environmental specialist and others as needed.

The consultants will be selected and engaged by ADB in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2006, as amended from time to time). It is expected that a simplified technical proposal using the quality- and cost-based selection procedure (80:20 quality-cost ratio) will be adopted for recruiting the consulting firm. Office equipment will be procured in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2006, as amended from time to time).
