Consultancy: Erosion control expert Lake Tanganyika (Deadline 12 April 2021)
The Governments of Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Tanzania, Zambia, and the Lake Tanganyika Authority have acquired funds from the GEF through UNEP for a project titled: "Biodiversity conservation, sustainable land management and enhanced water security in Lake Tanganyika basin". This proposed project has received a Project Preparation Grant (PPG) to prepare a Full-Sized Project (FSP) document, based on the approved project proposal concept (PIF). On this basis, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has contracted IUCN for the execution of the PPG as set out in the Project Identification Form (PIF) approved by GEF. In this regard, IUCN has to contract a Consortium of technical service providers engaged in the sustainable management of the Lake in support of the Convention for the Sustainable Management of Lake Tanganyika. The Consortium will deliver specific assessments, activities, reports and other inputs required.
IUCN is seeking to hire soil erosion control expert to support the formulation of component 2 of the project. The expert will assess erosion threats and formulate restoration measures in three protected areas (one in DRC, one in Burundi-Rusizi National Park, and one in Tanzania-Moyowosi game reserve) linked to the Lake Tanganyika basin.
