The Spotlight Initiative, a multi-year partnership between the European Union and the United Nations, is the largest global investment to eliminate Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG). This is in recognition that women and girls disproportionately experience gender violence and are exposed to intersecting forms of violence regardless of where they live; hence the investment in five regions across the globe. In the Caribbean, there are six specific country Spotlight Initiative programmes complemented by a Regional Programme.
Overall, the regional Programme aims to: i) Increase policy coordination and functional cooperation across the region to address family violence ii) Set regional standards for essential services delivery, for monitoring the implementation of regional and national family violence laws and policies; iii) Advance best practice models for prevention; and iv) Ensure the engagement women’s organisations in regional accountability frameworks. This will be achieved through complementing the investments of regional institutions and contribute to the scale, sustainability, visibility, lessons learnt and replication of programming throughout the region.
Under the Regional Spotlight Initiative UNWomen seeks to conduct a baseline survey. Proposals are invited from Firms/Consortium of Consultants outlining the methodology to i) Establish Baselines, Milestones, and Targets for the Caribbean Regional Spotlight Initiative ii) Complete Caribbean Regional Programme Results Framework/Monitoring Matrix and iii) Update the Caribbean Regional Programme Monitoring & Evaluation Plan. The Firm/Consortium of Consultants are also expected to propose a monitoring system along the instruments and recommended methods for data collection and measurement of the indicators for the Regional Spotlight Program, based on the results framework.
