Request for Proposals: Development of Environmental Monitoring Content for OKACOM Website

RFP for acquisition and formatting of content related to environmental monitoring in the Cubango - Okavango River Basin for OKACOM's website.

The Permanent Okavango River Basin Water Commission’s Secretariat is developing a new, interactive website that will be updated more frequently, and with less human labour, using the Plone CMS. The site will bring together OKACOM’s own content with relevant materials from external sources. The site design includes pages for regularly updated monitoring reports of environmental conditions in the river basin, including hydrological data related to water discharge and levels, flood extent, meteorological data, vegetation changes and fires. The intention is that the site’s users will have direct access to updated and integrated data from the three riparian countries of Angola, Botswana and Namibia.

OKACOM would also like to take advantage of new technologies that are continuously making it possible to visualize this type of data in ways that make it more accessible to its broad stakeholder group.

A technical consultant to make arrangements for acquisition and formatting of content for this portion of the site is needed. Download the pdf.
