Consulting Services

For technical assistance (TA) implementation, an international firm will be engaged to provide services of a multidisciplinary team comprising international and national experts. The consultant will bring to bear international best practices and lessons learned from similar interventions elsewhere in the world while preparing this Project. The baseline data on technical, social, environmental, financial, and economic aspects will be collated (and collected where necessary) for base-line reference in the future. The consultant is expected to work closely with the counterpart staff of the executing agency (EA)-Qingdao Development and Reform Commission-and both the implementing agencies (IAs)-Jiaozhou County and Laoshan District Government). They will have full access to all the relevant data and information pertaining to the subproject pre-feasibility study reports (PFSR) and other planning documents.

PFSR of both subprojects have been prepared but they require a detailed review to determine their respective objectives and institutional arrangements. The TA will be implemented in two phases. In phase-1, a detailed technical review of both PFSR will be carried out and subsector analysis accomplished. Institutional review will also be undertaken to establish an integrated water resource management (IWRM) framework. If found viable, the TA in phase-2 will assist the EA to prepare comprehensive feasibility study reports (FSR) for both subprojects along with preparing the requisite environmental impact assessments (EIA), environmental management plan (EMP), and the resettlement plans following the Government and ADB guidelines.

The consultant team will comprise 14 international and national experts in a variety of disciplines. The consultants will be engaged for a total of 52 person-months; 6 international consultants for 16 person-months and 8 national for 36 person-months. An experienced international economist will lead the TA team.
