The provision of the professional services described in these ToR will be developed in the framework of the project “Mainstreaming biodiversity conservation into the tourism sector in synergy with a further strengthened protected areas system in Cabo Verde (Bio-Tur)”, executed by the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment (MAA), through the National Directorate of the Environment (DNA), in close collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Transport, and co-funded by the UNDP and the GEF.
The project’s main objective is to safeguard globally significant biodiversity in Cabo Verde from current and emerging threats, by enhancing the enabling and regulatory frameworks in the tourism sector and activating a critical further subset of the national protected areas (PAs) system.
The proposed alternative scenario, supported by the project, will create enabling conditions to mitigate the adverse impacts on biodiversity by the tourism sector in Cabo Verde. The frameworks will be developed at national level and tentatively rolled out in four priority islands – Santiago, Sal, Boa Vista and Maio – where immediate pressure is greatest and urgent action is required that can be replicated more widely in the future. This urgent action includes at the local level the pending operationalization of a number of critical terrestrial and marine/coastal PAs and the piloting of marine biodiversity and artisanal fisheries management together with communities in two selected sites. At the same time the project will harness the opportunities to establish more sustainable tools for PA financing, protected area management and local community development, contributing to the consolidation and diversification of Cabo Verde tourism product, and the sustainability of the destination and the sector. This will be achieved through the following two project components:?
In 2018, under Project Output 1.2 “Cross-sectoral planning integrates biodiversity conservation objectives, and Strategic Environmental Assessments (SEAs) conducted in priority PAs/ ZRPTs.” the Bio-Tur project supported the development of a participatory process that led to the elaboration of a Law-Decree proposal to introduce SEA into the national legal framework.
Within the Bio-Tur framework was also developed a training needs assessment (TNA) for the staff of the DNA, the PAs teams and relevant stakeholders at project intervention sites related to EIA and SEA implementation. Based on the TNA, it was developed a training program for four short-term courses to be implemented at each target island (Santiago, Sal, Boavista and Maio). In 2018, some training modules included in the training program have been also implemented. These ToR describe the work to be done by the international consultant that will support the implementation of the second part of the training program.
Duties and Responsibilities
The international consultant will support the MAA, through the DNA and the Project Management Unit (PMU) to carry on and complete the training program that comprises four short-term courses on EIA and SEA to be implemented at each target island (Santiago, Sal, Boavista and Maio).
