In addition to the integrated water resources plan, the World Bank said the consultant is to help the government conduct feasibility studies of priority schemes recommended in the plan. Over eight months, the consultant is to conduct a preliminary assessment of water resources and flood situations and identify priority investments, including flood protection, irrigation, and drainage works that would be financed under the program.

Expressions of interest are to be sent by e-mail to the address below by June 5. For information, contact IJsbrand de Jong, Senior Water Resources Specialist and Co-Task Team Leader, World Bank, 1818 H St., Washington, DC, USA; E-mail: idejong@worldbank.org.
