Development of the Country Programme Strategy and Action Plan for Strategic Support to Territories and Areas Conserved by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (ICCAs) in Belize
Development of the Country Programme Strategy and Action Plan for Strategic Support to Territories and Areas Conserved by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (ICCAs) in Belize
The Global ICCA Support Initiative (GSI) provides support to territories and areas conserved by indigenous peoples and local communities in different regions of the world, with a special focus on twenty-six (26) countries participating in the GEF Small Grants Programme (GEF-SGP) implemented by UNDP. In alignment with the Country Programme Strategy (CPS) developed in Belize for the 6th GEF- SGP Operational Phase (OP6) running from 2015-2018. Under this initiative, a Country Programme Strategy and Action Plan for ICCAs in Belize will be developed.

The primary objective of the assignment is to develop an ICCA Country Programme Strategy and an Action Plan. The use of both the Programme Strategy and Action Plan will be to recognize and support ICCAs in Belize.

Activities to be undertaken towards the development of the Country Programme Strategy and the Action Plan will be to:

• Accompany the work or promote the development (as appropriate) of an ICCA network;
• Hold consultations at various levels and organize sub-regional and/or national meetings to discuss and then compile a synthesis paper on the national ICCA situation;
• Start to develop a database on existing and potential ICCAs in Belize;
• Identify a minimum of 4 to 10 "emblematic" ICCAs in Belize;
• Establish a communication link with the communities that govern and manage the identified ICCAs
• Accompany and support these emblematic ICCAs (existing or potential) in a self-strengthening process;
• Facilitate the review and peer-to-peer validation by the ICCA Network of the ICCA documentation that may need to be submitted to the ICCA Registry; and,
• Facilitate a campaign of ICCA dialogue, awareness and understanding in the national context, through the dissemination of relevant information.
