1. Invitation to tender bid for Wangari Maathai Marathon

The Green Belt Movement (GBM) established in 1977 by Professor Wangari Maathai (the 2004 Nobel Peace Laureate) is a reputable Non-Governmental Organization that empowers people and builds their capacity to restore the environment, promote good governance and develop sustainable livelihoods in Kenya and beyond.

GBM is desirous of establishing Wangari Maathai Marathon event whose major goal is to preserve and promote environmental conservation for sustainable development through environmental awareness, participation in sporting activities, and promotion of eco-friendly lifestyles. Further, the marathon seeks to raise funds for growing trees in key water towers thereby preserving the legacy and vision of its Founder.

The Marathon is contemplated as an annual event that will commence most preferably in 2020. In order to actualize this milestone event professionally, the GBM plans to outsource organizational expertise from competent firms in the area of sports marketing and event management.

We are thus inviting qualified and interested firms to indicate their interest by promptly sending a letter of intent to participate in the tendering process to procurement@greenbeltmovement.org.

The Terms of Reference(TOR) for the proposed marathon can be found by downloading the file name “MARATHON-TOR-June 2019 from our Website.  Hither to, both technical and financial proposals in sealed envelopes should be placed in our tender box on the below address latest by Monday, July 15th 2019 at 1.00pm.

2. Expression of Interest (EOI) and request for technical and financial proposals to develop an online community-based Measurement, Reporting and Verifying System (MVR) at county level on carbon emission

MRV typically refers to the measurement, reporting and verification of emissions and removals of greenhouse gases.

Countries report to the UNFCCC through National Communications that include inventories setting out GHG emissions and removals in the agriculture; energy (including transport); land use, land-use change and forestry (LULUCF); industrial processes; and waste sectors. Countries follow guidelines and protocols developed and approved by the IPCC to develop their inventories. GHG measurement and targets for the NCCAP (2018-2022) are set at the sector level (i.e., six mitigation sectors) for the five-year period. Setting annual emission targets and measuring emissions at a project level or County/sub-national level would be extremely costly and resource-intensive.

GHG emissions reporting at the County level would mean a bottom-up assessment that is time-consuming and likely would provide limited information to drive the transformative change needed for large-scale emission reductions.
