Guided by the findings of the aforementioned KAPB Study and Communications for Behaviour Change Framework and Action Plan, a consultant is being sought to support the development and implementation of a Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) Strategy and Action Plan to support the integration of gender equality and a human rights-based approach in Climate Change and DRR decision making machineries in Jamaica. This consultancy contributes directly to the achievement of EnGenDER project Output 1211 which places focus on providing technical assistance for gender-responsive behavioural analysis within national climate change and disaster recovery coordinating bodies.

The central focus of the proposed BCC Strategy & Action Plan is to drive responsive behavioural change among decision makers within Jamaica’s climate change and disaster recovery agencies.
