The International Organization for Migration (IOM) in collaboration with the Government of Grenada (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) seeks to recruit a qualified consultant to conduct a skills gap assessment to determine the existing skills in Grenada and to establish what skills and resources are needed for the country’s development.
The ‘Engaging with and Empowering the Diaspora for the Development of Grenada’ project locally referred to as Grenadian Diaspora for Development (GD4D) is implemented in close collaboration with the Government of Grenada (GoG) through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The project’s overall objective is to strengthen the GoG capacity to engage and dialogue with the Grenadian diaspora as part of the country’s strategic development focus.
In order to support the achievement of this objective, a mapping exercise is currently being conducted to document available skills and resources within the Grenadian diaspora, as well as diaspora return interest and plans to support the development of Grenada. This consultancy will also support this objective by conducting an in-country assessment to determine the existing skills in Grenada to establish what skills and resources are needed for country development and to cross reference findings with data collected from the mapping exercise.
The assessment will be carried out using consultative processes with both the Government of Grenada and the private sector. The report must be drafted in an inclusive and participatory manner and fully considering the unique diaspora profile for Grenada, using a gender mainstreaming approach and considering National Sustainable Development Plan 2035 – Grenada. Data will also be collected by conducting interviews of members of the private and public service and/or other relevant stakeholders as identified by GoG and the project’s Steering Committee.
