Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The SFA will be supported by four individual consultants: a dryland management specialist and team leader (international, 5 person-months), a sustainable land management specialist (national, 8 person-months), a financial specialist (national, 8 person-months), and a natural resources management and institutional expert (national, 6 person-months). The consultants will be financed and engaged by ADB in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time) using the individual selection method. This method is considered appropriate and cost-effective given (i) the organizational structure has already been established for the partnership, and (ii) the size of the TA. The terms and conditions of the technical assistance framework agreement executed between the government and ADB dated 23 December 1996 apply to the ADB-financed consultants.
