- REVISED 17 MAY: SUBMISSION OF EXPRESSION OF INTEREST AND FOCUS GROUP DATES -
With the support of the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) as part of the Jamaica Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR), Panos Caribbean is implementing the Voices for Climate Change Education Initiative. The purpose of this project is to promote climate change awareness at the community, sectoral and national levels through the engagement and use of popular local artists and performers and through the production and dissemination of creative materials and messages. Community-level activities will focus on four locations (two rural communities and two coastal communities).
As part of this initiative, Panos Caribbean is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified persons or groups to provide two sets of services:
Expression of interest should be provided in a short letter (maximum two pages) that includes a statement of capacity, examples of previous work involving similar tasks, and any other information that may assist Panos Caribbean in the evaluation of submissions. These evaluations will be based on three sets of criteria: relevant skills and experience: 60%; interest in climate change and development issues: 30%; knowledge of Panos Caribbean and its work: 10%. The same person or group may express interest for both activities. Following the evaluation, Panos Caribbean will approach selected applicants and will make a financial offer based on available budget.
On the occasion of the 25th edition of World Press Freedom Day, May 3, 2018, Panos Caribbean shares with the Caribbean press a reflection on the state of Haitian press. This reflection, in the form of a mini-report, was presented and discussed by Panos in November 2017, with Mr. Edison Lanza Rabatto, the Special Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

In February 2018, in response to the invitation from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat and the High-Level Champions to non-Party stakeholders to provide inputs to the Talanoa Dialogue, Panos Caribbean, with the support of Climate Analytics, has organised a process aimed at: (a) informing civil society, the private sector and other non- State actors of this Facilitative Dialogue, (b) highlighting its relevance and importance to the Caribbean region, and (c) encouraging inputs into the Dialogue. This process builds on the campaign initiated by Caribbean stakeholders in July 2015 in support of ambition and of the 1.5 degrees target. Climate Analytics and Panos Caribbean are committed to sustain this Talanoa process among non-State actors in the Caribbean over the coming months and to provide a comprehensive statement in advance of the October deadline.
