The services included in the study are to be conducted in accordance with generally accepted international standards and professional practices acceptable to the Gov of Jamaica and the World Bank. The scope of work is understood to cover all activities necessary to accomplish the objectives of the consultancy, whether or not a specific activity is cited in these Terms of Reference. Physical measurements of mangrove ecosystems are essential to provide the basis for an analysis of habitat quality, ecosystem service provisioning and habitat risk assessment. These measures could also contribute to an evaluation of the explicit role of nature within the disaster risk equation, and thus help point to the role that nature has in mediating societal vulnerability and how nature can help reduce climate and disaster risk. The activity will select contrasting sites with different physical, ecological, social and governance characteristics to conduct specific measurements of mangroves habitats and evaluate their role in coastal disaster risk reduction.
