These centres are: the African Centre of Meteorological Applications for Development (ACMAD) Regional Centre for Agro meteorology and Operational Hydrology (AGRHYMET), IGAD Climate Prediction and Applications Centre (ICPAC) and SADC Climate Services Centre (SADC-CSC) former Drought Monitoring Centre (DMC). This project will strengthen the capacity of various African scientists to generate relevant information on climate and to make them available to end users referred through appropriate channels.

    This request for an individual consultant to undertake a Vulnerability and Socio-economic Impact Assessment

    The overall objective is to undertaken assessment of the impacts and vulnerability of climate variability and climate change for the fifteen SADC Member States countries. The study has a number of key aims to assess the potential impacts of climate Variability and change on key sectors on the economy and non-market sectors (such as health) so Members States can understand what is at stake for them. More specifically, the study is to include at a country level:

    (a) Impact Assessment: substantive analysis to develop a comprehensive and quantified assessment of the economic impacts of climate variability and change. The impact analysis should emphasize climate effects both on economy and prospects for growth, as well as on the poorer and more vulnerable sections of society (specifically via the MDGs).

    (b) Costed Options for Mitigation and Adaptation: analysis of the costs and benefits of climate change mitigation and adaptation in the short, medium and long term, including an assessment of regional interdependence and its consequential multiplier effect. (Time horizons may be informed by country planning processes, e.g. 2020, 2025 and 2030. For adaptation use of the MDG 2015 target may be helpful).

    The Southern African Development Community (SADC) now invites eligible individual consultants to indicate their interest in providing these services. Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services (brochures, description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions, availability of appropriate skills among staff, etc.). Consultants may constitute joint-ventures to enhance their chances of qualification.

    Eligibility criteria, establishment of the short-list and the selection procedure shall be in accordance with the African Development Bank’s “Rules and Procedures for the use of Consultants”, dated January 2000, which is available on the Bank’s website at http://www.afdb.org.
