Request for Proposals: Development of Gender Responsive Budgeted (GRB) Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) for EnGenDER’s Priority Sectors for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Through the funding support provided by the Global Affairs Canada and Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), Enabling Gender-Responsive Disaster Recovery, Climate and Environmental Resilience in the Caribbean (EnGenDER), seeks to further integrate gender equality and human-rights based approaches into disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change (CC) adaptation and mitigation; environmental management frameworks and interventions. EnGenDER will also identify and address some of the gaps to ensure equal access to DRR and climate change and environmental solutions for both men, women, boys and girls in nine Caribbean countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Suriname).

The overall objective is to develop Gender-responsive Budgeted (GRB) Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) for the EnGenDER priority sectors of Agriculture and Water for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. This will support the application of the gender budgeting approach through assigned budgeting (estimated costing) in the development of Gender-responsive SASAPs in-addition to project concepts and finally, in the development of country specific Gender-responsive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Plans for newly developed GRB SASAPs. These outputs would assist in achieving the project’s immediate Outcome 1110: “Improved national capacity for gender-responsive climate change adaptation and mitigation planning and implementation among state and non-state actors in the target countries”.

The objectives include:

  1. To develop Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) for the EnGenDER priority sectors of Agriculture and Water for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines based on the draft Agriculture Sector NAP and Water Sector NAP documents.
  2. To apply the of the gender budgeting approach in the development of the Gender-Responsive Budgeted (GRB) Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) and Project Concepts.
  3. To develop a gender-responsive Monitoring and Evaluation Plan for the newly developed Gender Responsive Budgeted (GRB) SASAPs per country.

Proposals may be submitted on or before Wednesday, October 07, 2020 and via email to the address below:

GWP-C and CCCCC Partner with Caribbean Water Sector Stakeholders to Develop Green Climate Fund Projects

May 27th – 29th, 2019 | St. George’s, Grenada. The Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) in partnership with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), is convening a regional project development workshop at St. George’s University in Grenada from May 27th – 29th, 2019. The workshop is titled “An Approach to Develop a Regional Water Sector Programme for Building Resilience to Climate Change.”

The focus of the 3-day workshop, is to strengthen the capacity of Caribbean Water Utilities and Government Ministries with responsibility for Water Resources Management, in developing climate resilient water proposals, with the objective of preparing a Regional Water Sector Programme for the submission to the Green Climate Fund (GCF). More than twenty (20) representatives from ten (10) Caribbean countries will participate in the regional workshop. These countries include: Antigua and Barbuda, The Commonewealth of Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and The Bahamas.

The workshop will provide participants with knowledge on the GCF and funding opportunities, as well as introduce them to the GCF concept note and funding proposal template. Additionally, stakeholders will be able to identify priority activities and actions for the water sector and utilities in the Caribbean. This would feed into identifying next steps to further develop the Regional Programme for approval by the GCF.

The importance of the workshop cannot be overstated, as Caribbean Small Island Developing States are some of the most vulnerable islands to the impacts of Climate Change in the world, with water scarcity ranking as the most critical resource under threat. Addressing this existential threat, requires urgent action to mitigate its long-term impacts and accessing funding to do so is urgently needed.

GWP-C’s mission is to support Caribbean countries in the sustainable management of their water resources. While the CCCCC, as a regional entity accredited by the GCF, has the mandate to coordinate the Caribbean’s response to climate change. This collaboration between GWP-C and CCCCC, therefore presents a combination of knowledge and experience to foster building climate resilience in the Caribbean water sector. The ultimate objective being to make the Caribbean Water Secure.
