The CTCN is seeking experts for the projects Development of Green Building Standards for Zimbabwe

The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance projects:

Development of Green Building Standards for Zimbabwe

Deadline: 3 June 2022

According to the Global Climate Risk Index for 2021, Zimbabwe was amongst the world’s 10 most affected countries by climate change in 2019. The last three decades have seen increased variability in the seasonal distribution of rainfall, an increase in day-time and night-time average temperatures, increased incidences of intense rainfall interspaced by long dry spells, and late onset and early secession of rains. Zimbabwe has also seen an increase in extreme weather events such as droughts, floods, flash floods and tropical cyclones. The impacts of climate change in Zimbabwe are being felt throughout all sectors of the economy, including the infrastructure sector.

There is now, to a greater extent, a desire to develop policies, tools and regulations as an approach ensuring sustainable development within the built environment through waste reduction and efficient provision of infrastructure. There is an urgent need to look at domestic systems and modify them through establishing new building systems and practices based on green thinking and applications. As a result, Zimbabwe needs to develop sustainable practices, there is a need to improve the environmental and economic performance of new and existing commercial, institutional, and residential buildings. In order to make green building practices easier to implement, the ultimate goal is to develop technical services and resources for determining the greenness of buildings based on an appropriate green building compliance system.

Diagnosis, optimization and redesign of the meteorological, hydrological, agrometeorological and atmospheric surveillance observational system to combat climate change in Peru

Deadline: 3 June 2022

Peru is vulnerable to the increased intensity and frequency of extreme events due to climate change, such as floods produced by El Niño, droughts, frosts, fires in the Amazon, and the retreat of the Andean glaciers. Mitigation targets were set for Peru’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in the energy, industrial processes, agriculture, land use, land use change and forestry and waste sector. Likewise, adaptation measures were established for five prioritized sectors, including water, health, fisheries and aquaculture, forest and agriculture, and more recently transport and tourism. For all of these targets, early warning systems are a key mechanism to combat the increased risk and depend fundamentally on observation systems. The input of highly accurate meteorological and hydrological information to identify the temporal and spatial distribution of precipitation, radiation and wind is essential to support studies on renewable energy as well.  

SENAMHI organizes, operates, maintains and controls the National Network of Meteorological, Hydrological, Agrometeorological and Atmospheric Monitoring Stations, in accordance with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The National Observational System includes the National Network of Stations and also provides data management and the processing and delivery of observational information to users. However, it is currently unable to adequately cover the diverse climates in the country resulting from the geographic diversity. Technical assistance has been requested to develop a modern and multipurpose observational system. The expected activities include a diagnosis and identification of the principles and criteria for the diagnosis, optimization and redesign of the observational system.
