This action will open an external link.
The consulting services (“the Services”) include development of land use/planning coastal scenarios for a site in each PPCR pilot country and the use of said scenarios in the delivery of 3 training workshops to build the human resource capacity in each pilot country. It is anticipated that the assignment will be implemented over 9 months beginning in May 2020.
More specifically, the consultant will use LIDAR, multi-spectral, aerial imagery and other available information from external Components and stakeholders to develop the following for one highly vulnerable coastal area (e.g. protected area, marine park or fish sanctuary) in each country: land cover/use classification maps; benthic classification maps; socio-economic impact assessment and mapping. The outputs noted should then be used to develop ‘Best-Case’, ‘As-Is’ and ‘Worst-Case’ scenario maps with changing coastal utilisation for: Coastal land cover/use classes; Benthic classes, and; socio-economic activities/benefits (specifically the interplay between changing coastal/marine uses and cover with the quantity and quality of the provision of goods, values and services)
The consultancy should provide stakeholders with the ability to set-up, coastal scenarios under varying climate change/variability, use and development options by training them to create, edit, update and manipulate input data and output files in the scenarios/model application/tool. Additionally, the selected consulting firm will work with local stakeholders to include where possible post-graduate students by providing assistance with technical approaches and methodologies for analysis for their future research and to serve as potential contributions to future reports and papers for publication.
