"Call for Expressions of Interest to Develop a National Water Resources Allocation Policy for the Government of Samoa"
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 to strengthen their governance structures and frameworks 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 Samoa to secure technical support to assist in the preparation of a National Water Resources Allocation Policy (NWRAP) and associated Implementation Plan. This support will compliment other ongoing efforts and assistance to Samoa through the Water Sector Support Programme (WaSSP), financed by the European Commission under the 9th EDF.

The Consultant will be required to work within the legal and policy context already defined, and will in effect be assisting the Ministry to implement the provisions of the Act relevant to water allocation. In undertaking this work, the Consultant will contribute to the building of longer term capacity within the WRD.
