Tender Details
The European Union (EU) - North Pacific - Readiness for El Niño (RENI) project is about communities working to secure food and water resources ahead of drought. The three-year (2017 - 2020) project is funded with € 4.5 million from the EU and implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) in collaboration with the governments and peoples of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Marshall Islands and Palau. The implementation period is from 6 July 2017 to 30 October 2020.

The specific objective of the RENI project is to strengthen the implementation of a sustainable, multi sectoral, multi stakeholder approach to readiness for future El Niño events. Key outputs are:

•Uptake of key individual and community behaviours that support El Niño resilience
•Local area measures implemented to support El Niño resilience building in water and food security and paying special attention to the rights of women and vulnerable groups in outer islands
•National measures - Institutional, planning and technical - implemented to support readiness for future El Niño events

Yap State, FSM, has selected water security in Yap Proper as the main focus for the RENI project activities. Yap State Government has decided to focus on refurbishing abandoned community water systems in Yap Proper. These water systems would then provide "point water sources" for the public during drought. After initial assessments and consultations in Yap Proper, the groundwater sources in Dugor, Weloy Municipality, and Rumuu, Fanif Municipality have been identified as the most feasible sites; and community water catchment systems in Rull, Gagil, Tamil and Weloy municipalities have also been identified for refurbishment and expansion. Agreements will be entered into with the communities for the long term maintenance of the water systems.
In addition to these larger scale activities, the project seeks to assist women's groups by building capacity about water conservation and assisting them plan and implement small-scale water conservation and drought resilience measures in their communities. These activities will also empower women and vulnerable groups to address climate and disaster risk.
The objective of this consultancy is to review the existing active women's groups in Yap Proper and identify those that are interested and ready to undertake and complete small scale water conservation/ drought resilient measures by April 2020. Provide training and capacity building in
water conservation measures and share information about registering informal women's groups. Assist, oversee and provide guidance to a minimum of three women's groups, to plan and undertake a small scale water conservation/drought resilience measure in their community. (The
actual cost of undertaking the specific resilience measures will be paid by SPC). Measures will be selected from the following list:
•Repairing leaks in houses, community buildings, water storage tanks and connections.
•Repairing and refurbishing water catchment systems e.g. gutters, fascia boards, down pipes, first flush diverters, tank repair. (Note a new installation of a rainwater catchment system is not included).
•Clearance and proper disposal of rubbish, plastics, and other materials from community waterways, streams and wells.
•Education activities within the community, including with schools and youth groups, about water conservation
•Communication activities around water conservation
•Uptake of household behaviours to conserve water
•Reduction of soil erosion
•Tree planting
The consultancy will be conducted under the direction of the RENI Project Manager based in Fiji, Executive Director, Yap State Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Director, Resources and Development Department (R&D), and in collaboration with the RENI-FSM National Coordinator based in R&D, Yap State Government.
