Following a request from the Mekong River Commission Secretariat (MRCS), the AWP is seeking to mobilise a Senior Flood and Drought Technical Adviser to provide both technical and institutional advice to the MRC Regional Flood and Drought Management Centre (RFDMC).

The Australian Partner selected will provide support in reviewing the existing structure and operations of the RFDMC with recommendations for improvement of operational tools, systems and institutional capacity while aligning with the broader MRC Project. They will also work with the MRCS and the RFDMC to put in place agreements with identified specialised agencies for the development and improvement of operational tools and systems.
