The World Bank invites expressions of interest from consultants, including those with hydropower experience, to provide technical assistance to a Java Water Resources Strategic Study on Indonesia’s Java Island. Responses are due June 16, 2009.
The bank seeks consultants to work with the Directorate General of Water Resources, the Ministry of Public Works, and the National Planning Board to prepare a long-term strategy for investment priorities for water resources on Java. The work is expected to require 20 months for an estimated cost of US$1 million.
The World Bank said a recent study indicated Java, with 60 percent of Indonesia’s population, is the most physically and socio-economically vulnerable area to climate change in Southeast Asia. The consultant is to document Java’s water resources, develop scenarios for future water use, and formulate priority mitigation and adaptation plans for future water resources development.
Consultants sought are to have expertise in water resource planning, hydropower, irrigation planning, and other areas.
Expressions of interest and qualifications, in English, are to be submitted by June 16, electronically via the World Bank Group eConsultant Internet site, www.worldbank.org/wbgeconsultant. Short-listed firms are to be invited to submit bids.
