Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

A team of consultants comprising research scientists, coastal engineers, and specialists in natural coastal protection, community-based coastal management, and training is envisaged. The consultants will work at national, state, district and community levels, with total estimated inputs of 66 person-months (22 international and 44 national). Consultants will be engaged by ADB through a firm using quality- and cost-based selection procedures with 90:10 of technical and financial weight on a full technical proposal.

The consultancy contract package will include provisional sums to cover the costs of additional activities, namely:

(i) subcontracting of three focal research institutes to provide information and data, and implement specific studies that will define and quantify coastal climate change and impacts; (ii) project management of the pilot community projects and subcontracting of local nongovernment organizations (NGOs), community organizations, or local contractors to implement natural protection activities; (iii) organization and management of training courses, workshops, preparation of awareness materials and report production; and (iv) engagement of an advisory panel of experts to review and endorse the project climate change analysis and adaptation guidelines (the members of the panel will be nominated by MOWR and maritime states and union/island territories, and approved by ADB).

Procurement Minor procurement of equipment is planned which will follow ADB guidelines.
