Consultancy service to conduct a workshop on leadership and partnership building for the Hydro-Himalaya Project


The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is issuing this request for proposals for consultancy services to conduct a leadership and partnership building workshop and to facilitate the productive implementation of the Himalayan University Consortium’s Hydro Himalaya Project mentorship programme and modality. For the mentor requirements, please see Annex I. 


About the project

The Hydro-Himalaya Project (HHP) running from 2021–2026, funded by NOHRED-II (Norwegian Programme for Capacity Development in Higher Education and Research for Development), aims to develop sustainable and resilient technologies in the hydropower sector in Nepal through the provision of relevant higher education and research. Through the Hydro-Himalaya Project, the Himalayan University Consortium (HUC) at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), together with Kathmandu University, Nepal, the Norwegian University for Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN), and Wuhan University (WHU), China, is implementing a mentorship programme for 30 PhD and Master’s students (HHP fellows) between 2021 and 2024. We seek to mobilise six to eight mentors from the private sector, development, practice, and government or policy-making bodies in Nepal. The mentors are expected to support, guide, and advise mentees to achieve their educational and personal goals.

29 professors and teaching faculty from three partner universities will serve as supervisors for HHP fellows. HHP is being implemented with the support of five staff members of the Project office as well as participating partners, including the Himalayan University Consortium Secretariat, at ICIMOD.
