Section 1: Background

SNV the Netherlands Development Organization is an international not-for-profit development organization working in over 30 developing countries for more than 40 years. In Rwanda, SNV has been working for more than 30 years to improve people’s livelihoods by strengthening the capacities of public and private sector organizations. SNV works in full alignment with Rwanda’s development agenda. It does so by helping to realize the national development goals in three sectors: Agriculture; Renewable energy; and Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. SNV supports development in these sectors by working with the government, civil society, and private sector organizations.

Section 2: Project Overview

Energising Development (EnDev) Programme – is a multi-donor funded multi-country initiative to support sustainable access to modern energy. EnDev’s work involves building on the government’s efforts by capacity development, technical and financial support. EnDev’s component on cooking energy in Rwanda called “Reducing Climate Impact of Cooking in Rwanda through improved cooking systems” (ReCIC) is implemented by GIZ (German Development Cooperation) and SNV Netherlands Development Organisation and funded by the European Union (EU) and Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Through this 5-year ReCIC project that started from November 2020, EnDev aims to set up a sustainable production and dissemination chain for improved cookstoves (ICS) as well as for improved or alternative fuels in Rwanda, through a threefold approach: 1) increase production capacities, 2) consumer awareness 3) increase dissemination of ICS and improved fuels. ReCIC supports for production and sales of a wide range of ICS products and fuels by giving the choice to the Rwandan users to adopt the most appropriate ICS design and fuel, according to their needs and purchasing power, through a market-based approach. In doing so, producers of both ICS and alternative fuels will be enabled to grow and professionalize their businesses, and eventually transition into a semi-industrial production, with bigger output and improved quality products, to better serve the Rwandan market. The ReCIC project is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Biomass Energy Strategy (BEST) of the government of Rwanda.

Interventions to achieve the goals of the project consist of private sector development through training and other interventions, including through a Cooking Energy Business Growth Fund (CEBGF) that provides financial and in-kind support to private companies and cooperatives on competitive basis. It also includes increasing consumer awareness through marketing activities (e.g., radio and TV advertisements), community mobilization and support in access to credit

The objective of this component implemented by SNV is to improve the demand and supply, particularly of improved cookstoves (ICS), improved cooking techniques, and more efficient use of fuels through the producers (companies and cooperatives).

Section 3: Purpose of the Bid

It is in the above context, SNV is looking for a supplier to procure the following machines, tools, and materials to be delivered as detailed below to the 2 ICS producers (company and cooperative) in Gatsibo and Gasabo Districts
