CONSULTANCY FOR 2015 SITUATION ANALYSIS OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS
UNICEF country offices worldwide have, for quite some time, adopted the practice of periodically conducting comprehensive, objective, well researched and evidence-based analyses of the situation of children in the contexts in which they operate. Over time, this has proven to be a highly effective means of informing key decisions within the organization at the country level. The resulting publication of the analytical findings has, in turn, become accepted as one of UNICEF’s most widely recognized products.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is seeking a qualified consultant/consulting firm to conduct a Situation Analysis of Children and Adolescents in Jamaica.
Interested persons should submit separate technical and financial proposals in accordance with project requirements as outlined in the attached Terms of Reference. Electronic submissions should be sent to Attention: Situation Analysis at email@example.com no later than October 2, 2015. Acknowledgements will only be sent to short-listed candidates.
