Sovereign Project | 40621-012

Summary

The impact of the Viet Nam Water Sector Review (the Review) will be increased contribution of water resources management to poverty reduction and national development. Its outcome will be a common framework to guide development decisions in the water resources sector in Viet Nam over the coming 10-years. The framework will represent a consensus among the different Government agencies and stakeholders from the external funding agencies, NGO community, and private sector. It is expected that the framework will lead to enhanced coordination of policy reform and development of a sound institutional framework for integrated water resources management (IWRM) and development in Viet Nam.

The Review will be carried out over 8 months from April to November 2007. The TA will finance a team of international and national consultants to help the Task Force carry out the Review. ADB, as coordinator for the external funding agencies and other development partners will provide overall supervision of the team and administer the TA. The consultants will provide 69.5 person-months of national and 19.5 person-months of international consultant inputs, including 5 person-months provided in parallel under World Bank financing. The international water sector specialist will act as Team leader to manage the Review in close collaboration with MoNRE, the lead coordinating agency on the Government side. Expertise will be required in water policy and institutions, natural resource and development economics, water supply and sanitation, irrigation, water resources, ground water, water quality, sociology, disaster management, industrial water management, environment, energy, river navigation, data management, and monitoring and evaluation.

The World Bank will recruit an International Irrigation Specialist (5 pm) who will operate as a member of the Consultants team and will report to, and be supervised by, the Team Leader.

ADB will select and engage the firm of international and national consultants using the quality- and cost-based selection method and biodata technical proposals, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2006).
