The Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) is currently accepting proposals for the development of a technical guidance note on global health programming, the environment and climate change.
CanWaCH is a proud membership of more than 100 non-governmental organizations (NGOs), academic institutions, health professional associations and individuals partnering to improve health outcomes for women and children in communities worldwide. Together, we work towards the vision of a world where women, children and adolescents, in all their diversity, realize their right to thrive in full health.
2. Project Summary and Deliverables
2.1 Project Summary
As climate change continues to affect the social and environmental determinants of health, particularly for women, adolescent girls and children, an environmental screening is required for all of Global Affairs Canada’s (GAC) international development assistance initiatives. As organizations in the global health sector are required to give consideration to key environmental health risk factors, CanWaCH is seeking to produce an accessible technical guidance note that will support the sector in assessing and addressing environmental risks within their work. The production of this guidance note would draw from the experience and expertise of the CanWaCH membership and partners to better understand our sector’s current work and capacity, as well as strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in integrating environmental and climate change considerations into global health and gender equality programming.
2.2 Project Deliverables
With these objectives in mind, CanWaCH is seeking a Consultant to conduct a sector scan, and to develop a practical and technical guidance note for Canadian and global partners, as well as Global Affairs Canada, on strengthening linkages between health, the environment and climate change, in order to serve as a roadmap to success for Canadian organizations in the global health sector.
