Communications Development Consultant
The Project entitled “Development of a National Action Plan for Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining in the Co-operative Republic of Guyana” aims to assist Guyana in the development and implementation of a National Action Plan (NAP) for the Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining (ASGM) sector and facilitate contributions to the protection of human health and the environment from the emissions and releases of mercury from the ASGM sector. The project, through the development of an awareness campaign, aims to raise awareness on the Minamata Convention, to which Guyana ratified in 2014, and to build the initial national capacity for the early implementation of the NAP for ASGM.
All components of the National Action Plan have since been completed, and at this stage of the project, the communications strategy, aimed at raising awareness on the sources and effects of mercury on human health and the environment from the Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining sector in Guyana, will be implemented, to allow its dissemination to the public. In this regard, the Basel Convention Regional Centre for Training and Technology Transfer for the Caribbean (BCRC-Caribbean) in its role as project executing agency, is seeking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced Communications Consultant(s) (individual, team, firm, agency or company) to provide the services for the design and development of two (2) infographics and two (2) animated shorts, comprising of one (1) to two (2) minute videos each with a running theme to create an overall message to raise awareness on the major concerns of mercury exposure to human health and the environment from the Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining sector in Guyana.
