PILOTING THE INTEGRATION OF COASTAL ZONE MANAGEMENT AND CLIMATE
CHANGE ADAPTATION IN TOBAGO
TC No./Grant No. ATN/OC-13321-TT
The Institute of Marine Affairs (IMA) has received financing from the Inter-American Development
Bank (IDB), and intends to apply part of the proceeds to payments under the project; Piloting the
integration of coastal zone management and climate change adaptation in Tobago, for service of a
consultant firm to undertake a Vulnerability and Risk Assessment. The objective of this consul-
tancy is to develop vulnerability and risk assessment for Southwest Tobago based on climate change
scenarios. This assessment will be used to formulate a Coastal Vulnerability Index (CVI) which will
identify areas that are at risk to erosion and/or permanent or temporary inundation. Successful imple-
mentation of this project is expected to contribute to the development of tools for decision-making as
well as an approach for the development of a national Coastal Zone Management plan that integrates
climate change adaptation. The duration of the consultancy will be for a period of five (5) months.
The ideal consultant firm should possess the following qualifications: i) The firm must be legally
constituted for over 5 years; ii) experience in eco-system based adaptation programs within the coastal
environment, directly or through the experience of at least two of the proposed principals for this
assignment; and iii) the firm should demonstrate experience with knowledge dissemination related to
climate change. Experience in the Caribbean is considered an asset.
The Institute of Marine Affairs (IMA) now invites eligible consultant firms to indicate their interest in
providing the services. Interested firms must provide information establishing that they are qualified
to perform the services (including, description of similar assignments, experience in similar condi-
tions, availability of appropriate skills and detailed CV including three (3) references).
Consultants will be selected in accordance with the procedures set out in the Inter-American Develop-
ment Bank: Policies for the Selection and Contracting of Consultants financed by the Inter-American
Development Bank (current edition) and is open to all eligible bidders as defined in the policies.

Plipdeco only needed
three overs to overhaul
a struggling Arcelor
Mittal team yesterday as
action continued in the
SIS Industrial Cricket
Batting first, Mittal
could only forge a mod-
erate 35 runs from their
ten overs as they strug-
gled to negotiate Plipde-
co s bowling attack.
Jason Douglas was the
only resistance in a bat-
ting lineup that never
fired; he managed 10
runs, including the lone
boundary of the innings.
Zaffer Mohammed was
Plipdeco s main destroyer
with the ball, claiming
three wickets for just
seven runs in his two
Plipdeco made light
work of their target and
sounded a warning to the
other teams in their
Group. When Tarandath
Beepat was bowled for a
second ball duck in the
first over, opener Antho-
ny Ramroop was joined
by Antonio Aziz and the
pair took the game away
from Mittal in 17 balls.
Aziz s knock of 25 not
out lasted just 8 balls and
included four sixes as he
led his team to a com-
fortable victory. Plipde-
co s next test will be a
hard one on May 21 as
they face defending
champions and a yet to
be defeated T&TEC team
who have scored in
excess of 100 runs in
their last two matches.
Earlier in the week,
after a humiliating 53-
run defeat at the hands
of Group B leaders, PCS
Nitrogen, Super Indus-
trial Services bounced
back on Monday with a
crushing victory over
Industrial Gases Limited
as teams continue to jos-
tle for position midway
through the group stage.
Choosing to bat first on
a ground at California
that has proven to yield
big scores so far, SIS got
an excellent start from
openers Dinesh Ramba-
jhan and Roger Williams.
The pair picked apart the
IGL bowling attack early
and produced a 45 run
opening stance before
Williams was out caught
behind off the bowling
of captain Kareem Joseph
for a well played 27. Two
wickets fell in quick suc-
cession as IGL fought
back but they did little
in the way of slowing
down the run rate. With
58 runs on the board in
the fifth over, S. Ragbir

IGL faltered early in
their reply, losing their
first wicket for just four
runs. Wickets fell steadily
after that as SIS bowled
well and kept IGL s big
hitters at bay. Captain
Kareem Joseph top

offered the most resist-
ance in a batting lineup

overs but never fired with

Ground, Yara also had a
run-fest as they piled it

placed Phoenix Park Gas

a 65 run opening part-
nership from just 30 balls

of Rajendra Narine for 37.
Yara s top three batsmen
accounted for 98 runs
and even though PPGPL
continued to get wickets,
the runs kept flowing as
Yara closed on 123 for 6
wickets. PPGPL never
came close. They man-
aged 25 runs in just seven
