The Latin America and the Caribbean Environment Support Services Contract (ESSC) provides demand-driven technical and logistical support services in program and activity design, implementation, management, evaluation, communications, and environmental compliance for LAC regional and bilateral environment, natural resource management, resilience, and energy programs. As part of these services, ESSC provides communications support to highlight USAID’s activities and results under its Amazon Regional Environment Program (AREP), which centers on protecting the environment and biodiversity across the Amazon.
USAID/AREP has requested ESSC produce short videos of between 2-4 minutes in length that discuss regional environmental challenges, USAID interventions in the region, and actionable steps for the viewers to become involved in supporting the environment. Video messaging will be geared towards building awareness on protecting key landscapes and species; decreasing deforestation, forest degradation and greenhouse gas emissions; fostering an environmentally friendly economy; and securing the rights, resources and health of forest-dependent communities. ESSC will provide overall direction of the service provider to ensure a successful production process.
