Consultancy: Legislative Review and Gap Analysis in Support of an Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) Approach and draft Legislation to Support the Implementation of the National Water Sector Policy and Implementation Plan 2019

Project Title: Strengthening Human Security in Northern Clarendon and West Kingston

Country: Jamaica

Post Level: National / International Consultant

Type of Consultancy: Individual Consultancy

Expected start date: September 2020

Period of assignment/services: 30 working days


Many communities in Jamaica are vulnerable and face challenges due to multiple human insecurities. The Government of Jamaica (GOJ) is committed to addressing these human insecurities in order to promote social and economic development while protecting the natural environment as articulated in the Vision 2030 Jamaica: National Development Plan (Vision 2030). In an effort to address the diverse human insecurities in a comprehensive and holistic manner, the Joint United Nations (UN) Team comprising the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO); the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO);United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (GEF SGP) and UN Women are partnering with the GOJ to implement the three-year “Strengthening human resilience in Northern Clarendon & West Kingston” Programme under the “Delivering as One” approach.

Rationale for Consultancy:

National Water Sector Policy & Implementation Plan (2019) The National Water Sector Policy and Implementation Plan 2019 outlines the current situation in the water and wastewater sector and the principles, objectives and policy directions for the management of the country’s water resources in line with the Vision 2030 Jamaica – National Development Plan. One of the major principles of the National Water Sector Policy & Implementation Plan (2019) is Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). The traditional fragmented approach to water management is no longer viable and a more holistic and coordinated approach is essential. That is the rationale for the IWRM approach that has now been accepted internationally as the way forward for efficient, equitable and sustainable development and management of the world’s limited water resources and for coping with conflicting demands.

Brief Scope of Work:

The Consultant will work in close collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Growth & Job Creation (MEGJC) and National Counterparts to: • Undertake a review and gap analysis of existing Policies, Legislation and Regulations relevant to the water and sanitation sector in support of the IWRM approach. This gap analysis should be informed by past research and existing analytical work done in the area, including the Gender Aware Beneficiary Assessment of WASH services.
