Deadline: 9 September 2016
The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently seeking applications for the second phase of the Climate Resilient Infrastructure Development Facility (CRIDF) programme.
The contract is anticipated to start around December 2016 and span a period of 36 months with a possible extension of up to 36 months subject to satisfactory performance, continued need and availability of funding.
The CRIDF will build on the strong momentum achieved under the first phase to:
- Scope out and design small-scale and strategic water infrastructure with a regional benefit across mainland Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) countries;
- Link water infrastructure projects to traditional and innovative sources of finance;
- supervise the construction of water infrastructure projects where appropriate;
- Provide technical assistance to relevant organisations to improve their operation, management and planning for water infrastructure; and
- Improve decision making in relation to water infrastructure through providing knowledge products and better data.
Indicative results that are expected through CRIDF phase 2 are:
- 100 water infrastructure projects advanced through the design chain, 25 of which are brought to ‘bankability’ within the programme lifetime
- 2-3 million people better able to cope with the impacts of climate change (in the face of increasing likelihood and intensity of floods and drought)
- £400 million of public or private finance influenced and/or mobilised for climate resilient planning and infrastructure.
