BACKGROUND

UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. With offices in more than 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

For over three decades, UNDP has utilized its OECS Regional Country Office in Barbados to partner with the Government of Grenada (GoG), civil society and the people of Grenada to help them find their own solutions to global and national development challenges. UNDP works in the areas of Poverty Reduction, Democratic Governance, Energy and Environment, Crisis Prevention and Recovery, HIV and Development.

The Programme on Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies (ICCAS) is being co-implemented by UNDP and GIZ. The overarching objective of the ICCAS Programme is to increase resilience of vulnerable communities and ecosystems to climate change risks in Grenada through integrated adaptation approaches. The Programme targets both government, including its sectorial agencies, and communities already being impacted by climate change. These sectors and communities suffer from droughts and other extreme events associated with climate change. Communities will also benefit from improved services associated with stronger national institutions and service providers.

UNDP will realize the operationalization of the Community Climate Change Adaptation Fund (CCCAF) in order to strengthen adaptive capacities through community-based initiatives; and share knowledge and experiences from the Programme to improve understanding and awareness of Climate Change risks and adaptation measures.

The UNDP is seeking to recruit the services of a consultant to conduct a Terminal Evaluation on the ICCAS.

In the case of unforeseeable travel, payment of travel costs including tickets, lodging and terminal expenses should be agreed upon, between the respective business unit and Individual Consultant, prior to travel and will be reimbursed

2. Cumulative analysis
