The envisaged scope of the Master Agreement would be based on access to high quality, global, and regularly updated wind resource data from a maintained dataset, founded on the most advanced, peer reviewed wind resource modeling methodologies currently available. The resource data shall be scientifically validated using ground-based measurements where these exist, with the validation results in the public domain. However, the Master Agreement would not include provision for new ground-based measurements, nor would the winning Vendor be expected to commission ground-based measurements themselves. The dataset shall include all the key variables for mesoscale wind resource assessment, at multiple heights, at a minimum resolution of 3km, and with a temporal coverage of at least 10 years.
The global water community is gearing up for Stockholm World Water Week 2016. This year’s theme, “Water for Sustainable Growth,” comes at a critical time, as we are mobilizing to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in which water plays an essential part.
It drives economic growth, supports healthy ecosystems, and is fundamental for life. However, water can threaten health and prosperity as well as promote it. Water-related hazards, including floods, storms, and droughts, are already responsible for 9 out of 10 natural disasters, and climate change is expected to increase these risks.

This consultancy will develop an early warning system for forest fire in Mozambique. The system will be based on four sources of information: 1) near real time monitoring of satellite images from Meteosat, MODIS and Suomi-NPP; 2) characterization of the fire regime in Mozambique, based on analysis of historical satellite images; 3) effect of season and climate on fire risk, based on the Fire Weather Index and 4) geographical modeling of fire risk and intensity.
