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:

Heather-Lynn’s Habitat: US$15M Climate Change Project Announced

Eight Caribbean countries will benefit from Japanese and United Nations financial assistance to help build their resilience to climate change.

On Thursday, the US$15 million Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership was launched at the Radisson Aquatica Resort. It is a partnership between the Government of Japan and the United Nations Development Fund (UNDP). Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Vincent, St Lucia and Suriname are the countries benefiting from the project.

Minister-Counsellor and Deputy Head of Mission at the Embassy of Japan in Trinidad, Masatoshi Sato, said his government envisaged that the project will assist the eight regional countries in developing and implementing climate change policies and promoting the adopting of selected adaptation and mitigating technologies through various island projects.

He added that the US$15 million project to the eight countries was the forerunner to Japan fulfilling its COP 21 France pledge of approximately US$8.4 billion in public and private finance to developing countries.

“As such, Japan expects the project will enable the Caribbean countries to enhance their capacity to cope with climate change and natural disasters, thus assisting them in overcoming vulnerabilities particular to small island states,” the ambassador said.

He later told the Nation Japan had invited all CARICOM countries and the eight countries were the ones which had expressed an interest in the project.

“They are interested in making their countries more resilient to the impact of climate change,” he added.

Meanwhile, UNDP’s Resident Representative for Barbados and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, Stephen O’Malley, told the audience the project aimed to ensure that barriers to the implementation of climate resilient technologies were addressed and overcome in a participatory and efficient manner.

“There are many lessons we can learn from Japan and from each other and this project provides ample opportunity for the region to take advantage of Japanese experiences and knowledge, particularly as it relates to energy,” he said.

Also speaking was Director of the UNDP regional Bureau for Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Hub, Rebeca Arias, who said December’s Paris agreement must be the starting point of a new era of climate action.

“It must permanently shift the global development trajectory towards one that is zero carbon and risk-informed,” she said.

Arias added that the project will facilitate climate mitigation and adaptation activities in the eight countries and will help them move towards “a green, no emission development pathway”.
