Kingstown, April 19, 2024 – The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) received funding from the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund, co-financed by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety through KfW to implement a project in collaboration with local partners entitled, ‘Pioneering a blue-green economic development model for coastal adaptation, livelihoods and sustainability in St. Vincent’. The project seeks to pilot a local blue-green economic development model that protects, restores and sustainably uses coastal and marine ecosystems for ecological, socio-economic and climate resilience in the South Coast, St. Vincent.

CANARI is now inviting proposals from dive shops operating within the South Coast Marine Conservation Area (SCMCA) of St. Vincent and the Grenadines to implement a sub-contract to support implementation of the coral restoration implementation plan. Proposals from a consortium of firms are preferred, however a lead contractor must be identified. A fixed price contract will be awarded for a value of not more than $61,000 USD.

We encourage candidates to carefully read the request for proposals before choosing to apply. Candidates should send their application to the Executive Director, CANARI via email to [email protected], with the subject line “RE: Coral Restoration Sub-contractor – CBF EbA Facility SVG Project” by 11:59pm AST (UTC-4) on Friday, May 10, 2024.

Applications received after the stipulated date and time will not be considered.

If there are any questions or clarifications, information can be obtained by contacting the CANARI Project Manager, Yasa Belmar, at [email protected].
