Climate Change Programme
MFAT has initiated a Climate Change Programme (CCP) as part of its commitment to support countries to respond to climate change. The CCP has a significant focus on the Pacific region and on adaptation. MFAT now seeks to procure Services to better understand Pacific current and future exposure and vulnerability to fast- and slow-onset disasters resulting from the environmental impacts of climate change.
These Services will contribute to two components of the CCP that involve: increasing resilience to water-related emergencies; and increasing our understanding of vulnerability to climate change-related human mobility.
The Services will:
• undertake a comprehensive collation and review of existing information on Pacific vulnerability to the impacts of climate change (including impacts of past events) relating to droughts, floods, coastal inundation, salinization, cyclones and heat stress, and identify data gaps;
• collate and assess information on Pacific assets, including people (population and demography), infrastructure, economic and culturally important locations etc, to better understand potential damage and losses; and
• assess this information to identify the geographies within the Pacific that are particularly vulnerable to current and future impacts of climate change.
The Services will be desk-based.
The RFP document, Terms of Reference, Supplier Code of Conduct and draft contract are attached to this notice.
