Model Evaluation ToR
A Global Solar and Water Initiative, with funding from ECHO, has been set up in Kenya. The GSWI is working towards reduction of medium and long term recurrent costs of WASH projects by adoption of renewable energy. The project is aiming at promoting, advocating and mainstreaming the use of solar energy in WASH projects (mainly pumping) for refugee and IDP camps as well as local host communities.
One of the objectives of the Global Solar and Water Initiative is to improve the cost-effectiveness, efficiency, reliability and sustainability of existing and new solar water pumping schemes. In order to do this the team would like to engage the services of a private consultant to carry out an evaluation of existing solar schemes where different designs, approaches and use of energy are being used and document best practices, shortcomings, improvements and recommend models for sustainability of solar water schemes in refugee camps and communities.
