VACANIES: TOWARDS A COMPREHENSIVE NATIONAL ADAPTATION PLANNING PROCESS IN JAMAICA (JA-NAP) PROJECT

CLOSING DATE:

BACKGROUND:

The Government of Jamaica recently received funding support from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) through United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) to strengthen the climate adaptation action framework. This is to be attained through implementation of the two-year project “Towards a comprehensive National Adaptation Planning process in Jamaica (Ja-NAP)”.

Ja-NAP is geared towards strengthening the national adaptation planning and implementation framework through four outcomes that focus on (i) adaptation planning governance and institutional strengthening; (ii) design of adaptation solutions; (iii) engagement of the private sector; and (iv) increased access to adaptation financing.

The Planning Institute of Jamaica, the project Delivery Partner, now invites applications from suitably qualified persons for the following positions:

National Coordinator

Administrative Assistant

Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist

The Planning Institute of Jamaica is spearheading a collaborative process towards community renewal that will result in long-term stability, well-being and inclusiveness among and within violent and vulnerable communities in a manner consistent with the goals of Vision 2030. To this end, a Community Renewal Programme (CRP) has been developed and is being implemented in collaboration with Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies, communities, civil society and International Development Partners (IDPs).
The CRP now requires the expertise of a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Specialist to execute the M&E component of the programme and ensure its ongoing alignment with its stated objectives, Vision 2030 Jamaica and the work of its partners.
