The Kalinago Climate Smart Agriculture Project aims to design and implement a model farm using climate smart technologies and processes to reduce the vulnerability of agriculture in the Kalinago Territory, which can then be replicated across the country. This project will also address the issue of unemployment in the Kalinago Territory which is extremely high, particularly among the youth.[1]

The purpose of this consultancy is to develop a Strategic Plan for the Kalinago Territory Climate Smart Agriculture Project. The plan will provide a strategic approach for the design and implementation of the model farm based on international best practices but with careful consideration of the local context. A Consultant with experience in implementing sustainable agriculture projects especially within the context of climate change mitigation in vulnerable economies is required to develop the Strategic Plan for the model farm. The approach should ensure buy-in from the Kalinago community and relevant government authorities.

The expectation is that a comprehensive Strategic Plan will be completed by the Consultant that can be used for providing direction to local stakeholders for implementation and to mobilize resources for the project.
