SERVIR-Amazonia seeks to understand better how women and indigenous populations have/are being integrated into development and science projects, policies and activities in the region. The purpose is to strengthen its vision and gain a better understanding of the possible impacts or consequences of its projected interventions (services) under the Program, which may differ between women and men. In this regard, the study seeks to make the differences between men and women visible, if any, to neutralize possible negative impacts and enhance the benefits of the services for the most vulnerable people, particularly women and indigenous peoples.
This consultancy is intended to provide an updated study on the state of gender relations and the situation of women in the Amazonia Basin, and would be an input for the national Communities of Practice meetings that SERVIR-Amazonia is promoting in six countries during the second half of the year 2020.
This study is based in a literature review and interviews at the regional level, including six Amazon Basin countries (Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Guyana and Suriname). It will not include field work beyond knowledgeable informant interviews. Representatives of the SERVIR-Amazonia partners in the different countries should be included among the interviewees. Literature to be reviewed may/should include program descriptions, project reports and evaluations, web pages, policies, strategies, international scientific literature related to the Amazon and the Program service areas, from government institutions, NGOs, donors, etc.
The selected Consultant team will be composed of two professionals, a Principal Researcher and a Research Assistant, which should meet the following requirements:
