Consultancy to Formulate and Develop One Research Paper on the Social, Gender and Environmental Impacts of the CARIFORUM-EU Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) on CARIFORUM States 

CPDC, funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH has implemented a project aimed to optimize the CARIFORUM members of the Committee’s ability to effectively engage the social and economic partners, civil society actors, and academia on all aspects of the CARIFORUM-EU EPA. The CPDC envisions that the implementation of these provisions will further strengthen the group’s capacity to fulfill its obligations under the CARIFORUM- EU EPA.

As a result, CPDC is interested in procuring the services of a consultant who will be expected to:

  1. Undertake a summary analysis of the implementation status of the development cooperation commitments
  2. Identify the key provisions for social development and gender inclusivity in the EPA and investigate the impact of these areas in CARIFORUM nation states
  3. Analyze the environmental quality and policy sphere/arena of CARIFORUM countries pre and post EPA implementation and comment on its influence on achieving Sustainable Development Goals 12, 14 & 15
  4. Develop a civil society monitoring framework to undertake annual assessments on the status of implementation of the EPA
  5. Develop a summary report and presentation based on the findings of the research paper
