The Human Security Approach (HSA) is a multidimensional analytical framework that allows for a broad perspective on the challenges that people and Governments face. It assists the United Nations system to assess, develop and implement integrated responses to a broad range of issues that are complex and require the combined inputs of the United Nations (UN) system, in partnership with Governments, non-governmental entities and communities. The principles of the HSA involve programming that are people centric, comprehensive, context-specific, prevention-oriented and promotes empowerment. In supporting the Government of Jamaica to address issues of human insecurity, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), United Nations Environment, Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) and UN Women are jointly implementing the “Strengthening human resilience in Northern Clarendon & West Kingston” Programme with funding from the UN Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS). The programme seeks to contribute to enhance resilience and human security of communities in Northern Clarendon and West Kingston through three key objectives:

1. Strengthening of community organizational capacity and cohesion;

2. Enhancing economic, food and nutrition security; and

3. Enhancing environmental health and water security at the community, local and national levels.

The Programme involves a diversity of stakeholders including UN agencies, Government, civil society, community groups and private sector. The Programme is anchored nationally by the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation (MEGJC). A Joint UN Programme with so many components and stakeholders requires continuous, efficient and effective coordination to ensure that all activities are implemented across agencies. As such, UNDP as lead agency for the Programme is seeking the services and expertise of a consultant to coordinate the components across agencies.
