Overview :

Consultancy: Development of a Common Country Assessment (CCA) for Jamaica and The Bahamas

Countries: Jamaica and The Bahamas

Post Level: International Consultant

Type of Consultancy: Individual Consultancy

Expected start date: October 2020

Period of assignment/services: 35 working days over a two-month period (October – November 2020)

Background:

The UN General Assembly resolution 72/279 elevated the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (now renamed the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework) as “the most important instrument for planning and implementation of the UN development activities at country level in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2030 Agenda)”. The UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (Cooperation Framework) is nationally owned, and anchored in national development priorities, the 2030 Agenda and the principles of the UN Charter. It outlines the UN development system’s (UNDS) contributions sought by national stakeholders to reach the SDGs in an integrated manner, with a commitment to leave no one behind, human rights and other international standards and obligations.

The Multi-country Sustainable Development Framework (MSDF) 2017-2021 was developed in the Caribbean through an inclusive and participatory process led by the Governments and representatives of 18 Caribbean countries and territories and the United Nations in consultation with civil society and development partners. Following recent reforms repositioning the UN development system, new Cooperation Frameworks (CF) will be the most important UN planning and implementation instrument in support of the 2030 Agenda in the country and will be prepared and implemented in full consultation with the national Government. In the Caribbean, the next MSDF will outline the collective UN response to national SDG priorities agreed with national Governments for the period of 2022-2026. In this vein, it will be first and foremost a partnership with national governments, a compact for UN Country Teams and a commitment to national stakeholders including development partners, international financial institutions, civil society, trade unions, employers and those left behind. As per the CF Guidelines from the UN Sustainable Development Group (UNSDG), the UN Common Country Analysis (CCA) is the UN system’s independent, impartial and collective assessment (i.e., a description of a country situation) and analysis (i.e., a description of causes and their implications) of a country’s situation for its internal use in developing the CF. Therefore, under the guidance of the UNCT in Jamaica and representative agencies in the Bahamas, the Office of the Resident Coordinator (RCO), is launching the development of CCAs for each country as the UN system’s 

independent, impartial and collective analysis of the country’s situation. The development of separate country specific CCAs for Jamaica and the Bahamas will be inclusive, participatory, co-led by the UN System and each country’s Government and premised on the tenets of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including as reflected in the UN Cooperation Framework Internal Guidance. The companion package guidance for the CCA is attached to this ToR for reference.

The UN Resident Coordinator’s Office is recruiting an international consultant, who will be supported by two national consultants (one based in each country, i.e Jamaica and The Bahamas), for the overall purpose of developing a high-quality and evidence-based UN CCA as the foundation for the new Cooperation Framework.
