The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeking experts for the following technical assistance project:
Deadline: 29 June 2022
Jamaica is highly dependent on imported food, putting approximately 13% (400,000) of Jamaica’s population at risk of food insecurity. As a Small Island Developing State (SIDS), Jamaica is also vulnerable to the negative impacts associated with climate change, such as the loss of agricultural land due to direct erosion, temporal flooding and contamination of the agricultural soil via salination, which can impact livelihoods, production and economic output. The situation has been further compounded by the Covid-19 pandemic.
While the agricultural producing parishes across the island are well known, significant knowledge and technology gaps still remain. Policy makers as well as sector stakeholders have so far been unable to identify all of the food insecure regions across the island that are increasingly vulnerable to climate change. Knowledge on the spatial distribution of current and future food security risks across the island from the community scale to the parish level is therefore critical. The CTCN aims to support Jamaica through technical assistance that bolsters adaptive capacity and resilience in the agriculture sector.
