ACT Alliance would like to engage a consultant for a Research on the National Nuances of the UNFCCC Gender Action Plan: Ethiopia Case Study. See vacancy advert and ToR: Consultancy vacancy-tender-Climate&GenderJustice-2021-07
ACT Alliance’s structure is unique, with national, sub-regional and regional forums that bring local, national, regional and international church-related organisations to work together under the same principles and standards, bringing different skills and expertise to support each other and leverage collective action in humanitarian, development and advocacy engagement. Thanks to the presence of national ACT Forums in over 50 countries, and of its global secretariat in several strategic locations (Geneva, New York, Nairobi, Bangkok, Amman, Brussels, Toronto and San Salvador), ACT Alliance is able to bring local and regional concerns to the global arena. Conversely, global trends and development can be transmitted to the regional and national levels using these structures.
With a view to furthering and ensuring synergies in ACT’s Climate Justice & Gender Justice work and taking into account the importance of the UNFCCC enhanced five-year Lima work programme on gender and its gender action, we seek the support of a Consultant/Consultancy Firm to help the ACT Alliance and its members in understanding how the UNFCCC Gender Action Plan (GAP) can be put into practice and how it fits wider priorities on climate finance for adaptation. The idea would be to flesh out how the GAP can be used at national level to ensure that access to climate funding contributes both to climate and gender justice (in cases such as those related to livelihoods and food security/sovereignty).
