German Technical Cooperation Tender Notice
Engage an organization to carry out “Assessment of ecosystem services – livelihood linkage for integrated management of Bhitarkanika Ramsar site, Odisha”

GIZ in partnership with Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change MoEFCC, is implementing a Technical Cooperation project “Wetlands management for biodiversity and climate protection” with funding support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) under the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The goal of the project is to strengthen the institutional framework and enhance capacities for an ecosystem-based integrated management of wetlands of international importance (Ramsar sites) in India.

The project is implemented in close cooperation with the NPCA of the MoEFCC with an overall objective to establish an integrated management approach at four Ramsar sites (namely, Pong, Renuka, Bhitarkanika and Point Calimere). The project is being implemented at these Ramsar sites in partnership with the respective State Wetland Authorities and site level management institutions.

The project is seeking services of an expert agency to conduct an assessment of inter-linkages between livelihoods and ecosystem services provided by the wetland and recommend measures to improve livelihoods while sustaining ecosystem services. The assessment should identify key ecosystem services; major livelihoods that depend on the wetland; the changes in wetland characteristics that impact current livelihoods and the activities that negatively impact the wetland characteristics. The study should also identify key stakeholders working within the area, their roles and responsibilities, and recommend an institutional arrangement for integrated management of Bhitarkanika Ramsar site.
