The government of Mozambique invites expressions of interest from consultants to assist in integrated water resources management of the Incomati and Maputo rivers. Responses to three solicitations are due February 10.
In 2002, Mozambique, Swaziland, and South Africa formed the IncoMaputo Agreement for water sharing and cooperative development of the two common rivers. In 2008, Mozambique recruited consultants for a water resources development project including completion of Corumana Dam, construction of three small dams, and preparation of future investments in Pavua Dam on the Pungue River and the Moamba Major Dam, which is expected to include a hydro project, on the Incomati River.

The current solicitations seek to realize the goals of the IncoMaputo Agreement. In one solicitation, Mozambique’s National Directorate of Water Affairs seeks consultants for implementation of a project on integrated water resources management, with management plans for each basin, action programs, and a time frame until 2027.
A second solicitation seeks consultants for a project on stakeholder participation and communication, while a third seeks consultants for implementation of river system operating rules integrating rules for dam and river system operations.
Expressions of interest and qualifications in English, for each solicitation, are due by February 10 to the address below.
