Invitation to tender for "Socio-Economic Impact Evaluation and Planning & Prioritisation Toolkit for Low Volume Rural Roads in Afghanistan"
The Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) is a six-year programme of applied research and knowledge dissemination funded by UK aid from the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DFID). The overall aim is to promote safe and sustainable rural access in Africa and Asia through research and knowledge sharing between participating countries and the wider community.
Afghanistan's history as a crossroads between Asia and the West combined with the current government's focus on rural roads network development ensures the ReCAP initiative is relevant and timely. Since 2001 and the rush to build/re-build the country's infrastructure, capacity building has often been an afterthought on large-scale roads projects. This unsustainable situation has begun to change. The Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) is now firmly committed to investing in the Ministries, academic institutions and local communities to build much-needed capacity and create jobs, particularly in rural communities.
To that end, ReCAP has accepted a request from Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, for support for research into conducting a socio-economic impact evaluation and a planning and prioritisation toolkit for Low Volume Rural Roads in Afghanistan.
ReCAP, managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd, is therefore seeking proposals from suitably qualified organisations for implementing a project entitled: "Socio-Economic Impact Evaluation and Planning & Prioritisation Toolkit for Low Volume Rural Roads in Afghanistan". The objectives of the project are to develop a published socio-economic evaluation report highlighting the scale and nature of benefits (including dis-benefits) of rural road development in Afghanistan, drawing on successes and failures; as well as providing recommendations on how the impact of road projects can be optimised in order to increase the range and scale of benefits; and, the development of a Planning and Prioritisation toolkit for Low Volume Rural Roads (LVRRs) in Afghanistan.
Interested tenderers are advised that the indicative budget available for this contract is GBP300,000.
