Invitation to Tender: RSLA-0023: Vulnerability of the health sector in Quito: making technical data accessible to policy makers

Submission deadline: 12pm UK time 24th November 2014

CDKN is looking for a technical Ecuadorian or international supplier, or a consortium, to support the Municipality of Quito in exploring the vulnerability of the health sector in Quito in respect to vector borne diseases and in making these technical data accessible to policymakers. CDKN has been supporting the Metropolitan District of Quito (DMQ) since 2009 in the elaboration of a climate change adaptation plan that is evidence-based and locally adapted. As a foundation for the adaptation plan, the city identified the need for a robust vulnerability assessment that integrates key priority sectors such as health, water, ecosystems, agriculture and risks. For the health sector however it proved to be difficult to secure appropriately disaggregated data. The proposed methodology for the health sector which included the analysis of vector-borne diseases could not be applied primarily due to several knowledge and information gaps, and it is within this context that this project is conceived. It is crucial to provide a comprehensive adaptation plan regarding the vulnerability to climate change of the health sector in the DMQ.

Invitation to Tender: RSAS-0019 Pakistan low carbon scenario analysis

Submission deadline: 12pm UK time 19th November 2014

CDKN is looking for a supplier to undertake an assessment of low carbon development options and cost-benefits in six mitigation sectors set out in Article 4.1 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): energy, transport, industry, agriculture, forestry, and waste management.

The research involves preparing top-down projections of GHG emissions in the six sectors mentioned, in five year periods up to 2030 (or longer), in accordance with the guidelines of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Against this baseline, the researchers will undertake a GHG mitigation options analysis to explore opportunities for GHG emissions abatement across the six sectors and the potential to deviate growth from the business-as-usual (BAU) reference scenario to alternate low carbon pathway.
