The Ministry of Water is implementing a project named “Securing Watershed Services Through Sustainable Land Management (SLM) in the Ruvu and Zigi Catchments (Eastern Arc)” with funds from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through UNDP. The project area is in the Uluguru and East Usambara Mountains of Tanzania. These forest mountains, which give rise to the Ruvu and Zigi rivers respectively, form part of the Eastern Arc mountains forest chain, and are amongst the most important catchment areas in the country. The objective of the project is to ensure that sustainable land management alleviates land degradation, maintains ecosystem services and improves livelihoods in the Ruvu and Zigi catchments; Soil protection and control of erosion. The project has two components; The first one is focused on building institutional capacity and strengthening coordination amongst Water Basin Boards and other relevant stakeholders, and the second one is on implementing practical Sustainable Land Management (SLM) interventions to address land degradation in forests, rangelands and farmlands with the overall purpose of securing watershed services and improving livelihood. The project is being implemented in the districts of Morogoro, Mvomero, Muheza, Mkinga, Korogwe and Tanga for a period of 5 years effectively from January 2016 to 2020. The Ministry of Water and Irrigation (MOWI) through UNDP wishes to engage the services of an Individual Consultant with expertise in the Information Management Systems (IMS) who will work with the designated institutions and design the Information Management Systems for the project.
