Consultants to undertake a Gender Responsive Market Analysis in 5 Caribbean countries.

The World University Service of Canada (WUSC) is currently implementing a project in the Caribbean called Sustainable Agriculture in the Caribbean (SAC) project. The SAC project is funded by the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada. The SAC project is a new market systems development program being implemented in Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, and Suriname, seeking to increase the economic prosperity of women and youth (both female and male) in more sustainable agricultural markets in line with Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP).   

WUSC wishes to identify a lead consultant or consulting firm, capable of mobilising local consulting resources across the various project geographies including Dominica, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, and Suriname, to undertake a gender responsive market analysis. The purpose of the analysis is to provide the project with:

  1. Recommended agricultural sub-sectors to engage in per country in which women and youth can benefit
  2. A gender responsive analysis of the sub-sectors in the context of the broader agricultural market system in each country, including an integration of gender and age (youth) dynamics as well as environmental and climate change considerations, and 
  3. Programming recommendations in order to affect positive change for women and youth in the selected market systems.
