DAI, the implementer of the “USAID-funded Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (IUWASH) Project” invites qualified offerors to submit proposals to supply and deliver CLIMATE CHANGE TECHNICAL WRITER For Water Supply VA&AP Summary Report 2 PDAMs (PDAM Kabupaten Jeneponto and PDAM Kabupaten Bantaeng), South Sulawesi Province in support of program implementation.  The Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (USAID IUWASH) Project (or the “Project”) is a sixty-month program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented under the leadership of DAI. USAID IUWASH works with government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and other stakeholders to improve access to safe water supply and sanitation in Indonesia’s urban areas.

The overall goal of USAID IUWASH is to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in making significant progress in achieving its safe water and sanitation Millennium Development Goal (MDG) targets by expanding access to these services. The expected results to be achieved are: 2 million people in urban areas gain access to improved water supply; 250,000 people in urban areas gain access to improved sanitation facilities; and the per unit water cost paid by the poor in targeted areas decreases by at least 20%.

To achieve the above, assistance provided by the project is divided under three main technical components, including:
  1. Mobilizing demand for water supply and sanitation service delivery; 
  2. Improving and expanding capacity for water and sanitation service delivery; and
  3. Strengthening policy and the financial enabling environment for improved water supply and sanitation service delivery.
An important element of the second component is to provide assistance to local governments and water utilities to better manage and protect raw water supplies—i.e. improved “water security”—specifically as the twin forces of economic development and climate change place increasing pressure on these finite resources. In many ways, municipal water utilities are on the front line of efforts to mitigate or adapt to the wide-ranging effects of climate change.

Towards this end, the IUWASH Project is working with water utilities to conduct water supply vulnerability assessments and adaptation plans.  This work is in accordance with Outcome IC-4: “At least 20 PDAMs implementing necessary climate change adaptation measures based on preliminary raw water sources vulnerability assessments.”

Briefly, under the auspices of the Water Supply Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Planning (VA&AP) process, the IUWASH Project:
  • Implements a baseline vulnerability assessment in cooperation with a local partner such as a university or consulting firm;
  • Facilitates a series of stakeholder workshops to hone in on key natural and physical asset vulnerabilities and identify priority adaptation options; 
  • Supports the development of an Action Plan, including the integration of this plan into PDAM and local government planning/budgeting documents. 
  • Compiles a “Summary Report” that documents the major elements of the process and the final results. 
Objective
The objective of this scope of work is to provide assistance to the IUWASH Project’s climate change team in the preparation and finalization of the water supply VA&AP summary report for two PDAMs, namely, Kabupaten Jeneponto and Kabupaten Bantaeng, South Sulawesi Province. The baseline assessment and stakeholder workshops are has been done and, as such, the Project team requires the assistance of a climate change technical writer (hereafter referred to as “the Consultant”) to compile the “Summary Report” for each of the two locations.

For those mentioned subject, IUWASH inviting you to submit the proposal, detail Scope of Work (SoW) etc, please see : http://iuwash.or.id/rfp-no-req-jakarta-0333/

Thank you very much for your kind attention

Sincerely yours,
