Construction of Manager’s Quarter, Outside Kitchen, Store, Outside Toilet and Bathroom

Procurement Number NTB/UNDP/NCB/WORKS/2022/002

Date of First Issue 15th June, 2022

The coastal zone of Sierra Leone is highly vulnerable to the increased frequency and severity of coastal erosion, flooding, and storm surges which severely impact social wellbeing (health), livelihood security (and water resources), and major economic sectors such as fishing, tourism, water resources, and agriculture. Coastal communities are already experiencing considerable repercussions of these impacts, notably on their livelihoods with reduced fishing productivity, ecosystem degradation, and low farming outputs. The limited accessibility of climate-related data limits the ability of decision-makers to make informed planning and policy decisions for the coast (in particular marine and sea parameters databases such as wave height, wave period, wind speed, and direction), and to take any clear strategic actions to remedy these negative effects. This inadequate lack of knowledge is contributing to undermining social and economic development, particularly under a changing climate.

The National Tourist Board (NTB) has received funds from the United Nations/GEF to partially implement Outcome three (3) of theAdapting to climate change-induced coastal risks management Project’ in Sierra Leone. Activities implemented will contribute to project Outcome 3 “Adaptation strategies for alternative livelihoods are designed to strengthen women and sand miner youth association’s resilience to CC impact on the coastal zone so as to reduce pressure on natural resources. The project will undertake the design and implementation of an adaptation “package” that shall encourage the promotion of nature-based interventions in the coastal zones at six selected pilot sites.

One of the activities under Outcome 3 is promoting alternative and sustainable income generation activities; through the implementation of a pilot project i.e. undertaking the development of two pilot eco-lodge at Turtle Island (Chepo), Bonthe District. The construction works for the pilot eco-lodge are almost completed. Due to several monitoring assessments undertaken at the site, it was recommended that a complimentary facility be constructed to service the eco-lodge.  The National Tourist Board has received a grant from the United National Development Fund (UNDP) for the Construction of the Manager’s Quarter, Outside Kitchen, Store, Outside Toilet, and Bathroom located at Chepo Turtle Island and now invites sealed bids from eligible bidders for the construction of the above facilities:
