Deadline:  28-Nov-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)energy

The objective of this assignment is to help pave the way – and to contribute to preparing an enabling environment on the ground – for the PRESEMEH through a report that will provide a technical foundation to contribute to enhancing the awareness and understanding on energy consumption and energy efficiency in schools of relevant officials and staff from the public education sector, as well as other relevant stakeholders. The assignment will also be expected to inform other capacity building activities carried out by SENER under the PRESEMEH, and generally provide greater/deeper insights on the energy consumption and energy efficiency potential opportunities in public schools. The assignment will complement the more macro/aggregated picture available on energy in schools by focusing on a specific large public secondary school to generate concrete data and examples to help train education and school staff.

eC2: Agri-processing resource efficiency in South Africa – Stakeholder mapping and needs assessment

Deadline: 10-Oct-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) agriculture-youth

IFC seeks to procure the services of a consulting firm to conduct stakeholder mapping and needs assessment as part of work that aims to improve water efficiency in South Africa’s agri-processing sector by promoting water and energy efficiency technologies and practices, alternative water resource development, water reuse and recycling, and improved wastewater management. The stakeholder mapping and needs assessment will result in mapping of firms, identification of opportunities for improving water efficiency (and related energy efficiency), an assessment of knowledge needs and gaps, an assessment of the policy and regulatory environment, and prioritization of interventions to support an enabling environment for water efficiency (expected to focus at the municipal level).
