REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (REOI)
USE OF BIOLOGICAL INSECTICIDES IN RESPONSE TO THE FALL ARMYWORM (FAW)
CLOSING DATE: APRIL 1, 2018 (ROME, ITALY TIME)
1. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is an intergovernmental organization with more than 194 member countries. Since its inception, FAO has worked to alleviate poverty and hunger by promoting agricultural development, improved nutrition and the pursuit of food security – defined as the access of all people at all times to the food they need for an active and healthy life (further and more detailed information on FAO can be found on the internet site: http://www.fao.org).
2. The ultimate goal of FAO’s and partners’ response to the rapid spread of Fall Armyworm (FAW) across much of Africa is to enable farmers sustainably manage the insect in their cropping systems, with the help of local, national, regional and international research, educational, extension and policy organizations, through Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
3. The purpose of this REoI is to obtain preliminary information from specialized vendors 1) to assess their capacities to provide viable technical solutions enabling FAO to support countries and farmers in controlling FAW using bio-pesticides, and 2) to understand if they may be interested in participating to a future tender process.
4. The FAW (Spodoptera frugiperda) is an insect native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas that recently arrived in Africa. It was officially reported for the first time in Nigeria in January 2016 and since it has quickly spread across much of Sub-Saharan Africa and its presence has been detected by 31 African countries as of August 2017. FAW is a polyphagous pest of many important crops (including maize, sorghum, millet, rice, wheat, vegetables and cotton), but prefers maize and other plants of the grass family. FAW arrived in Africa without its associated natural enemies (predators, parasitoids and pathogens) native in the Americas that can provide a high level of natural control.
5. The vast majority of farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa are smallholder family farmers, farming the majority of the 35 million hectares of maize produced annually in the region. Most smallholders in Africa do not use pesticides in their maize production. The introduction of sustained use of pesticides in these systems may make the systems not only economically unviable, through increasing the costs of production, but also introduce significant risks to human health and the environment. The use of botanical and microbial pesticides to manage FAW in an IPM context has been reported to be effective in several sources, but bio-pesticides are not always locally available in the affected countries.
6. FAO has formulated a region-wide multi-stakeholder Framework for Partnership for sustainable management for the Fall Armyworm in Africa. Based on the Framework for Partnership, FAO has developed a five-year Programme for Action, to help farmers, their organizations, public institutions, national governments and development partners quickly respond the challenges of FAW infestation in smallholder farmers’ fields across Africa. FAO and its partners will act at all levels: to help determine and disseminate best recommended practices to smallholder farmers, help in the assessment and use of risk analysis, facilitating and supporting the refinement and application of near-term solutions, and helping to shape the policy and technical environment that farmers face. Within the programme, FAO has already funded some Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) projects in Central Africa (Sao Tomé and Principe, since July 2016 and Democratic Republic of Congo, since March 2017). New TCP projects have started in Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan in August-September 2017. Another 12 countries will benefit soon from TCP projects or facilities.
7. As part of the FAW response and through these TCP projects, FAO will promote the use of bio-pesticides for effectively and sustainably managing FAW in Sub-Saharan Africa. FAO will support quick access to bio-pesticides by African smallholders, by promoting fast-track registration of bio-pesticides against FAW and their availability in Africa.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR PRODUCTS SUITABILITY.
8. FAO is thus exploring the current availability of bio-pesticides that can provide an effective solution to FAW control. The minimum requirements of the bio-pesticides are: a. The product(s) is/are compliant with FAO’s definition of bio-pesticides: products with active substances that are based on microbials, botanicals or semiochemicals, that may be formulated and applied in a manner similar to a conventional chemical pesticide and that is normally used for short-term pest control b. Evidence of the registration of the offered product(s) in at least one country. Evidence is considered acceptable only if the vendor has been able to complete a registration dossier compliant with FAO guidelines for the registration of microbial, botanical and semiochemical pest control agents for plant protection and public health uses (http://www.fao.org/3/a-i8091e.pdf)
9. Companies already active in this field are kindly requested to provide FAO with the following information:
(a) Written confirmation of their interest in participating to a future tender for the supply of this type of product(s).
(b) Interest in supplying FAO within the framework of a Long Term Agreement (annual contract renewable for up to five years);

• Five (5) batch analysis for specification (to be kept confidential), or product specification.
• Independent efficacy data to FAW or similar insects.
• Storage stability Brief introduction of the product
(e) Production capacities expressed in terms of: i. Standard Lot quantity per production-cycle; ii. Average lead-time to complete a standard production cycle iii. Average lead-time to deliver a standard lot on FCA basis (Incoterms2010).
(f) Availability, during the duration of the contract, to keep an “emergency stock” for FAO, free of charge or at given cost to be determined, a minimum quantity of raw materials/active ingredients required to deliver, on FCA basis, at least one fully formulated standard lot quantity

(h) Previous experience with bio-pesticides registration in foreign countries and indication of countries where the product(s) is/are already registered;

REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI) FOR THE ENGINEERING DESIGN AND SUPERVISION WORKS OF EROSION CONTROL SITES IN CROSS RIVER STATE
As part of Governments commitment to transformation of the Nigerian socio-economic landscape, a multi-sector project is being executed in Nigeria to mitigate the vulnerability to erosion and support the people as they relate to their land. The Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project: (NEWMAP) is an 8-year multi-sectoral and multi-scale program that targets states with acute gully erosion. The project is involving many Federal and State Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Local Governments, communities and civil Societies who are responsible for Planning, economy, finance, works, agriculture, water resources, forests, transport, power, emergency response as well as those focused on climate and hydrological information or watershed/basin regulation. In order to achieve this, the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) has received a credit of US$500 million from the International Development Association (IDA) for the implementation of Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project.

Therefore, the purpose of this consultancy services is to select a qualified firm who will be required to carry out engineering design and supervision of works at the identified erosion sites across the State which are recognized as threat to the safety of lives and property.
The consulting firm will be hired for an initial period of two years to provide services under the following two phases.
PHASE I: DETAILED ENGINEERING DESIGNS
When a site is identified by the project, the consultant will be responsible for preparing the detailed engineering designs including consultation and planning for integrated watershed planning and management; involving topography surveying, geotechnical investigation, hydrological, hydraulic, geotechnical (incl. survey of construction materials) and structural engineering analysis, engineering cost estimates and bill of quantity (BOQ) excluding bidding documents for the identified erosion control intervention sites.
