The Joint Programme Enhancing Resilience and Acceleration of the SDGs in the Eastern Caribbean: Universal Adaptive Social Protection modelled at the Community, National and Sub-regional Levels is the first UN joint initiative to be implemented in the Eastern Caribbean by the Joint SDG Fund under the “Leave no one behind and Social Protection” window to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs. The Joint Programme aims to strengthen people’s resilience through predictable access to adaptive and universal social protection in Saint Lucia, Barbados, and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). It is being implemented by five UN agencies: UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UN Women, and the ILO over a two-year period from January 2020 to January 2022. Through the Joint Programme, the SDG Fund supports the United Nations Sub-Regional Team to contribute to countries’ achievement of the SDGs through catalyzing integrated, transformative policy change and innovative financial investments.
The Joint Programme contributes to the development of an adaptive and universal social protection system through integrated policy development, programme design and service implementation. The programme will utilize research, analysis, monitoring and evaluation to support the evidence-based development of an adaptive system towards progressive universal coverage of social protection, while facilitating replication and expansion to Eastern Caribbean Countries (ECC) through South-South exchange under the OECS framework. This will also include strengthening the OECS Commission to support scale-up and sustainability of interventions and implementation across the ECC.
UNDP’s expertise and experience directly relevant to the Joint Programme includes its support to poverty and inequality reduction and integrating gender equality and climate change considerations into programmes, and it has also led the development of institutional policies for national and sector-level climate change adaptation, and worked directly with communities to undertake emergency response training. UNDP also has extensive experience and several projects working with governments to develop innovative financing mechanisms in the face of climate change and in the context of limited fiscal space to support sustainable financing and natural resource management.
UNDP as a participating UN Agency (PUNO) will contribute activities under two outputs for Saint Lucia and Barbados related to strengthening institutional capacities for integrated service delivery and supporting innovative financing for sustainable and adaptive social protection systems and programmes.
Duties and Responsibilities
The individual contractor is expected to work collaboratively with any other teams conducting work on behalf of UNDP as directed, or in/on behalf of the beneficiary country as determined important by the government or UNDP. Outlined below are the expected task components for this consultancy.
The Individual Contractor is responsible for supporting the implementation of activities towards the achievement of the joint programme Enhancing Resilience and Acceleration of the SDGs in the Eastern Caribbean: Universal adaptive social protection modeled at the community, national and sub-regional levels as follows:
Scope of Work
Financing strategies should not only focus on the existing framework for public financial management for disaster risk (i.e. the Contingency Fund, Emergency Disaster Fund etc.) but also recommend new strategies). Interventions should be adaptable to addressing existing socio-economic and also climate related vulnerability, and so data on the interventions used for the analysis should be disaggregated by sex as well as geographic area. Likewise, any data produced should be disaggregated by sex and geographic area.
The assessment should provide clear recommendations for gender-responsive sustainable financing options including specific options for resource sharing within the relevant DRM infrastructure. Recommendations should be detailed and should suggest draft finance models for piloting as agreed with government counterparts.
