A “Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit” (GIZ) apoia a Divisão de Recursos Hídricos da SADC através do Programa de Gestão de Recursos Hídricos Transfronteiriços (TWM). O programa TWM apoia a gestão de cursos de água partilhados na África Austral, promovendo a implementação efectiva do Plano de Acção Estratégico Regional da SADC para o Desenvolvimento e Gestão Integrada de Recursos Hídricos, Fase V (RSAP V).

O principal objectivo do presente trabalho é realizar uma avaliação rápida do estado da bacia do Rio Cunene e desenvolver um plano de Gestão Integrada de Recursos Hídricos (GIRH) de longo prazo para a gestão da bacia hidrográfica, bem como identificar os potenciais projectos de investimento. A avaliação e o desenvolvimento do plano de GIRH deverá incluir consultas às partes interessadas, bem como a troca de conhecimentos, para promover a aprendizagem mútua entre os membros das diferentes sub-bacias hidrográficas.

É neste contexto, que o programa TWM pretende recrutar serviços de uma empresa de consultoria, que esteja registada me pelo menos um dos 16 Estados-Membros da SADC.
