    c)  Improved water, soil and crop management practices for irrigated and rain-fed crops adopted by male and female farmers and WUOs. 
    3. Services to be provided: The contracting process will be conducted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ethiopia according to European Award Procedures. The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development of Canada has no responsibility over this process. 
    The contracting authority will award a service contract by means of a restricted procedure divided in two phases: the selection phase and the award phase. The selection phase involves choosing candidate organizations that will then be invited to submit tenders in the award phase.
