Pacific Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) National Planning Programme: Invitation for expressions of interest for conducting an analysis on the National Consultation Structures for Water and Sanitation for the Government of Vanuatu 02 November, 2010  The Pacific Islands Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC) currently executes the European Union (EU) funded Pacific Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) National Planning Programme. The Programme is designed to support 14 Pacific Island Countries (PICs) to strengthen their governance structures (coordinating national water committees) and frameworks (policy, legislation, action plans) to mainstream IWRM and Water Use Efficiency (WUE) into national planning processes.
 
Through the Pacific IWRM National Planning Programme, SOPAC has been requested by the Government of Vanuatu to secure technical assistance to assess the national coordination and consultation mechanisms for the Water and Sanitation Sector. This technical assistance would identify, evaluate and propose improved structures and mechanisms that incorporate all key stakeholders from various levels including but not limited to government, provincial and municipal council levels as well as other partners such as NGOs, donor partners and other implementing partners.
 
This technical assistance would complement ongoing efforts currently underway in Vanuatu by progressing responsibilities already articulated in the National Water Strategy 2008 – 2018 (NWS) and the Water Resources Management Act of 2002, which specifically mention the National Water Advisory Committee (NWAC) as the coordinating and consultation mechanism for the sector will use this as a starting point for assessment.



Expressions of interest are to addressed to the Director of SOPAC and e-mailed to the following e-mail addresses [email protected] and copied to [email protected] and [email protected] with the subject heading “Expression of Interest for conducting an analysis on the National Consultation Structures for Water and Sanitation for the Government of Vanuatu”.

 
Submission of Expressions of Interest must reach the SOPAC Secretariat no later than 1630h, Fiji Time, on 30th November 2010. Enquiries may be directed to Rhonda Robinson on email [email protected] or telephone (679) 3381377 (extension 259).
