eC2: Development of a National Early Warning Platform for Rwanda and a Flood Early Warning system

Deadline: 19-Dec-2016 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)


A consulting firm is being sought to develop and operationalize a national platform to watersupport 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.

eConsultant 2: Flood Risk Assessment in South East Asia

Deadline: 27-Jan-2016 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

This assignment is to develop a multi-country flood hazard and risk model for a quick waterresponse financing mechanism and pricing for market-based parametric financial instruments. The model may utilize a combination of various data sources, such as historical flood and rainfall data, to underpin a rapid flood assessment methodology that triggers payouts when the event is more severe than a pre-defined threshold. The extent of an event that may trigger a payout should be measured by real-time data sources, such as satellite-based rainfall data, satellite-based flood data, rainfall gauges and river discharge gauges. The severity of an event may be measured by the population or other exposure in the flood footprint. Continue reading
