German Technical Cooperation Tender Notice
Engage an organization to “Model climate and hydrological risks associated with ecosystem functioning of Pong reservoir, Himachal Pradesh”.

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 identify and assess the risks climate and land use land cover change pose to the overall hydrological functioning of Pong reservoir along with its impact on water inflows, quality, availability and seasonality in reservoir storage. Based on these assessments, trade-offs for different stakeholders should also be mapped and recommendations drawn for ecosystem-based integrated management of the wetland.
