IFC is seeking to develop new datasets that will enable faster and more accurate market analysis for DESCOs operating in Tanzania, including household locations and indicators on ability to pay, potential for productive uses of electricity and up-to-date data on national electricity grid transmission and distribution line locations. Collectively, it is expected that these datasets will help DESCOs operating in, or seeking to enter, Tanzania to narrow down geographic areas that could be interesting markets for their off-grid energy services. Datasets should of sufficient detail and quality to inform and prioritize the parallel project on detailed mapping of priority villages and households. In addition, it should enable preliminary assessment of market potentials and be useful in the wider rural energy sector and beyond. The data should be presented online in a manner that allows for affordable updating on a regular basis, with intuitive presentation of the results and prioritization of feasible off-grid villages. IFC is seeking the services of a specialist firm to develop these datasets and prioritize detailed household mapping; to disseminate them in an accessible manner; and to and maintain the data up-to-date.

The project is expected to include mapping using satellite imagery, along with engagements in Tanzania to collect detailed indicators on village potentials. The selection committee will take into consideration the use of local Tanzanian consortium members or contractors in these activities. However, approaches that differ from these two points will still be considered. These datasets should be of sufficient quality to allow detailed assessment of mini-grid potential in villages, and in addition be useful to other rural energy actors and in wider development objectives. The datasets should be uploaded to OpenStreetMap and will also be made available on the platform developed in the parallel project. IFC is seeking the services of a specialist firm to develop this data; to ensure its quality and accuracy; and to upload and maintain it on OpenStreetMap and other platforms. Continue reading →

The proposed program of interventions on and around Lake Victoria are expected to contribute to improve transport connectivity and sustainability. Whilst local impacts are identified and addressed in site specific ESIA, the lake ecosystem is large, complex, multi-dimensional and dynamic. Understanding the social and environmental issues thus requires comprehensive observation and management at the catchment scale in a holistic manner. Given the wider scope of the interventions on the Lake Victoria basin (both at the ports, but also with the lake itself), with knock-on or cumulative effects on the lakes overall catchment area, a strategic planning framework for the development and protection of the lake, its dependents, and associated infrastructure is critically important. This assignment is designed to support the LVBC do that. Continue reading →

The overall objective of the assignment is to identify the most economic, climate resilient and environmentally sustainable dredging levels for key ports and shipping routes on Lake Victoria. Improving transportation on Lake Victoria is key to strengthening the Tanzanian Central Corridor, and is a priority for the Governments of Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. The lake plays a pivotal role in connecting land-locked countries (DRC, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi) via its shipping and railway network and is a key part of the intermodal supply chains along the Northern and Central corridor linking to Mombasa and Dar es Salaam ports. However, in recent years port infrastructure and consequently maritime operations on Lake Victoria have declined significantly. Continue reading →

The objective of these terms of reference is to formulate a model community engagement framework for local government (LGA) PPP in Tanzania, provide provisions for the Model LGA PPP Agreement ( PPPA) to implement this model framework and provide a module for the draft LGA PPP operating guidelines for the practical application of community engagement and in particular this framework to PPP projects in Tanzania. The framework will be based on global best practices adopted in community engaged PPPs and will embody the lessons learned from different country engagements (both successful and failed), for example the World Banks citizen engagement for smart cities program and IFC’s stakeholder engagement: a good practice handbook for doing business in emerging markets.
The global productivity slowdown, increasing climate and disaster risks, among other factors, have brought unprecedented challenges to poverty reduction and economic growth.
Amid rising uncertainties, cities can provide renewed sources of growth to help improve livelihoods, drive growth, and build a sustainable future for all.
The World Bank is working with countries worldwide to ensure that cities and metropolitan regions excel in the three critical roles they play—matchmakers, drivers, and anchors—for people and businesses alike.

IFC is looking for a Consultant to help assess the impact of two GAFSP/IFC projects in Tanzania/Senegal , investments in two banks in Tanzania/Senegal to support their agriculture finance business. These are two separate, stand-alone, assessments. The reason they are included in this same selection is that IFC prefers to have one Consultant conduct both assessments given that they are in the same country. The methodology is expected to be quasi-experimental design with quantitative and qualitative data collection. The Consultant is expected to have extensive experience in conducting impact evaluations in the agribusiness sector in developing countries. Continue reading →

Under the terms of this consultancy, it is envisioned that the consultant will support the relevant Contracting Authorities (CA) and undertake studies that will consider the projects in light of the economic, legal, financial, market, socio/environmental, affordability and value for money factors. The studies will allow the CA to determine the projects viability, whether they should pursue a PPP solution for the selected facilities, and what form of PPP should be developed.
