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
Palau has selected water security as the main focus for the RENI project activities. Planned activities will provide improved water security for residents of Koror and the southern states of Babeldaob. In particular a new water storage system will be designed and constructed beside the Tabecheding River alongside the Compact Road in Ngatpang State. During low rainfall and drought conditions, this water will be available to residents of Ngatpang State as well as to the residents of nearby states such as Koror and Airai. Other measures include the purchase of water tanker trucks to transport water during droughts, especially to households where people, such as the elderly and those with disabilities, cannot access communal water distribution systems.

The objective of this consultancy is to review the water conservation promotion and communication activities that have been taken by the Palau Public Utilities Corporation (PPUC),
