International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) intends to engage services of reputable supplier(S) for the provision of Architectural, Engineering and Quantity Surveying Consultancy Services for an upcoming construction project. IFAW is therefore soliciting for Expression of Interest (EOI) from interested qualified providers.


IFAW is a global non-profit helping animals and people thrive together with presence in 40 countries around the world (see www.ifaw.org).

IFAW works to address the needs of animals and people across a multitude of critical habitats through protecting wildlife from poachers, landscape conservation and rehabilitation of rescued animals. It partners with local communities, governments, non-governmental organizations, and businesses to achieve its mission.

The IFAW Eastern Africa Regional office based in Nairobi covers 10 countries i.e., Djibouti, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Eritrea and the Democratic Republic of Congo. At present IFAW has ongoing projects in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Ethiopia with some of these projects having a transboundary reach. IFAW believes that the livelihoods of people and the conservation and welfare of animals are inextricably linked through habitats, shared resources, and interactions therein. Through its Room to Roam initiative, IFAW has since adopted and committed to a landscape approach to conservation in select anchor landscapes in Africa and is committed to respectful and inclusive engagement that empowers communities to identify opportunities to address important wildlife conservation issues while incorporating livelihood options. This has been demonstrated in its work in Amboseli, Tsavo and Kilimanjaro landscape with commendable success.

Project Description

IFAW is implementing a USAID funded project ‘’Sustainable Management of Tsavo and Amboseli landscapes’ in Southern Kenya**.** The project is implemented in the Tsavo Conservation Area and Greater Amboseli Ecosystem in partnership with Big Life Foundation and Tsavo Trust Foundation.

The aim of the project is to strengthen local institutions’ ability to develop a coordinated management approach with their members to enhance local stewardship, improved benefit sharing and the sustainable management of wildlife and biodiversity within the Tsavo Conservation Area and Greater Amboseli Ecosystem. This will be achieved through the following outcomes:

  1. Improved governance of Tsavo and Amboseli landscapes.
  2. Reduced threats and improved biodiversity conservation.
  3. Increased partnerships for landscape level economic growth and sustainability.
  4. Increased community and ecosystem resilience.
  5. Key Activities

    Several key activities have been designed and will be implemented in line with outcomes/ results stipulated above.

  6. Under improved governance of Tsavo and Amboseli landscapes, specific activities have been designed to help strengthen governance, technical capacities, infrastructure and equipment for AET and TTWCA to facilitate integrated, inclusive and coordinated approach to biodiversity and wildlife management and open opportunities to derive increased benefits from landscape resources.
  7. On reduced threats and improved biodiversity conservation, the project aims at enhancing ecosystem-based planning, coordinated community-led law enforcement (anti-poaching, by-laws and community dialogues) and human wildlife conflict mitigation to improve management of wildlife and human well-being.
  8. To increase partnerships for landscape level economic growth and sustainability, targeted interventions have been lined up to enhance close coordination, planning and smart partnerships between the local community institutions, county government and private sector players across the anchor economic value chains (tourism, livestock, carbon, and green energy) to open new opportunities for local economic growth.
  9. To increase community and ecosystem resilience, the project will strengthen capacity and support towards sustainable livelihood initiatives for local community resulting into improved wildlife and rangelands management vital for ecosystem health and community resilience
