Project Title: Being LGBTI in the Caribbean: Reducing Inequality and Exclusion Experienced by LGBTI People

Country: Jamaica

Post Level: National Consultancy

Type of Consultancy: Individual Consultancy

Expected start date: March 2020

Period of assignment/services: Eighteen (18) days

Background: Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people in the Caribbean face legal, social and economic barriers to full inclusion and enjoyment of their human rights. Despite positive developments regionally, including increased attention and funding to address some of these issues and models of anti-discrimination policy and law, there remains much work to be done to guarantee equality of LGBTI people under the law and to ensure protection from violence and discrimination as well as equal access to services. In recognition of the importance of acting on these issues and the connection between securing the rights of LGBTI people and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals for the region, the United States Government-supported Being LGBTI in the Caribbean Project was developed. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Project, which is being implemented by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is a partnership between the two agencies, and builds on the lessons-learned from the Being LGBTI in Asia initiative. The project aims to enhance knowledge, partnerships, and capacities of LGBTI communities, civil society and States to reduce human rights violations and negative attitudes towards LGBTI people in the Caribbean. The project has three main objectives: 1. To develop and disseminate knowledge, strategic information and evidence on the impact of inequality and exclusion of LGBTI people; 2. To support the meaningful engagement of governments (supported through national and regional dialogues); 3. To develop the capacity of LGBTI Community Groups through enhanced coordination, increased access to existing tools, transfer of knowledge and concrete actions to address stigma & discrimination
