Request for Expression of Interest for
Consulting Firm(s) to Develop Environmental and Social Management Framework and other safeguards and gender documents for two projects entitled:
“Strengthening Ecological and Livelihood Resilience in the Southern Belize Reef Complex” and “Resilient, Bold Belize”.
Consultancy Type: Short-term Contract
Consultancy Duration: 3 - 6 months
Start Date: January 2024
Language required: English
The World Wildlife Fund Mesoamerica Office requires consulting services for the development of an Environmental and Social Management Framework and other safeguards and gender documents for two different projects, both based in Belize. These projects are:
- “Strengthening Ecological and Livelihood Resilience in the Southern Belize Reef Complex” funded by the Blue Action Fund, and
- “Resilient, Bold Belize” funded by the GEF
“Strengthening Ecological and Livelihood Resilience in the Southern Belize Reef Complex” (SBRC), is a field project, seeking to strengthen the resilience of the species and ecosystems of the SBRC while providing local communities access to nature-based livelihoods, as well as (restorative) climate adaptation measures. The project aims to have a new protected area declaration and strengthen protected areas management in the SBRC. This is a 5-year project to be executed by World Wildlife Fund Mesoamerica along with its partners Southern Environmental Association (SEA), and Humana People to People Belize through funding provided by the Blue Action Fund. This project focuses on the Southern Belize Reef Complex and targets 7 southern Belize communities.
“Resilient Bold Belize (RBB)” is a project finance for permanence (PFP) initiative focused on Belize’s coastal and marine protected areas and connected ecosystems. RBB aims to secure long term institutional and policy reforms to support the effective management of Belize’s coastal and marine protected areas and connected ecosystems, strengthen the resilience of coastal communities, while instituting a sustainable long term financing mechanism. Led by the Blue Bond Finance Permanent Unit of the Prime Minister Office, this project is being designed by the Government of Belize along with the World Wildlife Fund through funding provided by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF). This project’s scope is nationwide and GEF funding is for five years.
Despite the partly different scopes, approaches and timelines, the projects are closely aligned in that: a) both projects will take place simultaneously in Belize; b) there is programmatic synergy between them; c) there is an overlap in the communities targeted by both projects.
Although both projects largely follow the same guidelines in what pertains to safeguards and gender, separate safeguards documents are needed according to different donor standards and templates.
