|Overview : |
As a Small Island Developing State (SIDS), Trinidad and Tobago is particularly vulnerable to the projected impacts of climate change. This includes sea level rise, changing rainfall and storm patterns, loss of habitats, loss of property and livelihoods, and loss of agricultural land. The vulnerability is amplified by the limited ability to reap the benefits of economies of scale, and dependence on fossil fuel-based energy sources which contribute to carbon emissions. This can also have a severe impact on the stability of the economy. Given these circumstances, the country is working towards greater energy efficiency and an optimized energy mix that includes a larger share of renewables. This is evidenced in key policy instruments including the Vision 2030 – National Development Strategy, national goal of 10% RE supply by 2021, National Climate Change Strategy (NCCP) and Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
In light of the ongoing work taking place to support this energy transition, a Media Agency will be contracted to design and implement a Public Awareness Raising Campaign on Energy Efficiency, Correct Pricing and Renewable Energy in Trinidad and Tobago to address the gaps in awareness on energy conservation, the financial benefits of the efficient use of electricity and the ecological costs of energy production. This critical communications activity associated with Outputs 3 and 4 of the GCCA+ Project will also involve the development and execution of a Donor Communications and Visibility Plan, a Baseline Survey and Contextual Analysis, Public Awareness Raising Strategy and Campaign Plan, as well as a Monitoring and Evaluation Programme. This Term of Reference (TOR) identifies and specifies the scope of services required of a Communications Specialist to liaise with the Media Agency and support the implementation of Outputs 3 and 4 of the GCCA+ Project.
