United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is seeking to engage a firm to develop and conduct a capacity building seminar for regional media practitioners. This program will focus on climate change with the intent of increasing climate change related knowledge and buy-in among media practitioners, with the ultimate goal of knowledge dissemination by practitioners.

The Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership, a project being implemented by the UNDP Sub-regional Office for Barbados and the OECS, aims to support countries in advancing the process of low-emission risk-resilient development by improving energy security and integrating medium to long-term planning for adaptation to climate change. In the pursuit of this objective, the initiative will support policy innovation through the development of a number of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) that will help guide Caribbean countries towards a green, low-emission and climate-resilient development pathway.

The successful candidate will be tasked with:

  • Development of a training curriculum and key training materials (including: objectives, training topics and duration, power point presentations, videos, assignments, handouts, reinforcement tools and activities etc.)
  • Planning, management and facilitation of an innovative and interactive training program (including: pre and post program assessments – assessing instruction, practical exercises and logistical arrangements; identifying and securing trainers where necessary, compiling a list of invitees etc.)
  • Demonstrating that gender and youth considerations have informed the development of all materials and content.
