eC2: Prioritizing Resilient Investments for Water Security in Botswana

Deadline: 25-Apr-2022 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)water_hero

The main objective of this assignment is to develop a national and transboundary water resilient strategy for Botswana. This study will quantitatively assess the climate change risks of water resources management and development alternatives vis-à-vis other identified risks unrelated to such change. The study will include a roadmap for a phased adaptation leading to increased multi-dimensional resilience of the Botswana water resources system using Decision-Making Under Uncertainty Methodologies (DMDU). The assessment will evaluate tradeoffs across in-country water management and services investments as well as the three transboundary options (Chobe-Zambezi transfer, Lesotho-Botswana transfer, and desalination from Namibia). See detailed file with request for expression of interest.
