A consulting firm is being sought to develop and operationalize a national platform to support data sharing, analysis, visualization and decision making (for example through automated alert triggering) in support of a shared early warning approach between MIDIMAR, RMA, RNRA, and District government teams. While the focus of this support will be at the national level, the firm will also develop a local early warning system utilizing the national platform in the Sebeya Basin.
To complete the Sebeya Basin flood early warning system, the firm will also develop and operationalize a flood forecasting system in the basin. The firm will provide technical expertise on flood hazard assessment, particularly hydraulic/hydrological modeling, flood hazard mapping and operational flood forecasting, also to support capacity building of the appropriate agencies at the national and local levels.
