Terms of Reference - Chief Technical Advisor specialised in Water Engineering Field (Also

Open to International Consultants)

A. Project: Supporting vulnerable communities in Maldives to manage climate change-induced water


shortages

B. Position: Chief Technical Advisor

C. Location: Male, Maldives (252 days/year)

D. Thematic Area: Adaptive Water Resource Management

E. Type of Contract: Individual Contract

F. Estimated Starting Date: 1 August 2017

G. Application Deadline:

H. Duration of initial Contract: One year, with possibility of renewing up to 3 years depending on
performance

I. Project background:

The unique geographic attributes of the Maldives make its water resource situation both complex and
diverse. With widely ranging populations numbers on the islands, even basic water and sanitation service
must be tailored to local resources and population needs. Management of the limited water resources is
complicated due to the small catchment areas for rainfall, limited rainwater and groundwater storage
capacity, long dry seasons, and the susceptibility of groundwater aquifers to pollution and salinity
intrusion.

The outer islands of the Maldives already experience drinking water shortages during the dry season.
These shortages have had significant adverse human, environmental and social impacts on the outer
island communities. The key problems pertaining to freshwater security relate to the increasingly variable
rainfall patterns induced by climate change and sea-level rise induced salinity of groundwater. A sea level
rise and decreasing rainfall amounts will considerably compound current water stress in the country. The
Government faces constraints in responding to the challenge at hand without assistance, especially in the
context of anticipated impacts of climate change.

As water security is closely bound to rainfall and sea level rise in Maldives, the adaptation scenario will
demand: (i) the rainfall collection capacity to increase at least threefold; (ii) groundwater controlled
extraction and replenishment to keep water table levels high in order to buffer away saltwater intrusion;
and (iii) increased water production capacity through desalinization (Reversed Osmosis – RO technology),
as to secure sufficient back up resource during the extended dry periods for household supply and timely
distribution.

1
In response to this challenge, the proposed project objective is to deliver safe and secure freshwater to
105,000 people in the 49 target islands of Maldives in the face of climate change risks. This will be achieved
by delivering the following results:

a. Scaling up integrated water supply system to provide safe water to vulnerable households (at
least 32,000 people, including 15,000 women);
b. Decentralized and cost-effective dry season water supply system introduced benefiting 73,000
people across 7 Northern Atolls;
c. Groundwater quality improved to secure freshwater reserves for long term resilience on 49
islands;

The project will provide sufficient water to supply the potable water needs of island residents year-round
for a 35-year design period to 2050. Project finance will be used to establish an integrated water resources
management system that integrates the three main sources of water (rainwater, groundwater and
desalinated water) into a least cost delivery system and which is able to maintain service levels against a
context of rainfall variability and sea level rise and includes measures for groundwater quality recovery
to secure freshwater reserves in the long term.

Ultimately, the project will achieve an uninterrupted water supply on the islands that currently experience
a 90 day chronic water shortage during dry season and depend on transported water from Male’, which
is an extensive, overlong and costly operation. As a result of the project, 49 priority islands will have
increased rainwater collection capacities, out of which, 4 bigger islands will additionally have water
production systems of water desalination (Reverse Osmosis – RO water production plants), that will
secure sufficient water production capacity enabling a decentralized and timely water distribution across
all northern outer atolls during the extended dry periods, when shortages may occur.

Water stress alert information based on forecasted meteorological information will feed into the
Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for system management, thereby protecting lives and livelihoods
from environmental risks associated with climate change. This will also feed into strengthening the
Meteorological - MMS services on reaching out to the communities actionable early warning information,
and preparing the water utilities, island councils and the communities to receive and act on such
information. The system will achieve cost effectiveness in service provision through effective
management of water resources and the use of renewable energy and locally appropriate technologies.
Alongside the system design will be a capacity development workstream designed to obtain the support
and ownership from communities, which is necessary for financial sustainability of the system, as well as
the capacity development of the State Utilities (such as FENAKA and STELCO) to manage service delivery,
and of the decentralized authorities and central government to provide an enabling environment for
sustainability and scale up.
