The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) announced a tender for an in-depth study aimed at clarifying the consequences of climate change and increased anthropogenic pressure on the quality and quantity of water resources and water usages.
It also aims to identify mitigation and adaptation measures. The expected result is a report on existing scientific knowledge of the topic and an appreciation of the impact on ecosystems, local populations, and hydraulic works. The findings of the study will be used for identifying next steps for increasing climate change adaptation and updating the national water management action plan.
The deadline for the submission of tenders is November 4, 2011.
