    Consultancy Service for the Assessment and Identification of constraints to Private Seed Sector Development in Ethiopia

    Background

    The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is a not–for-profit organization formed in 2006. AGRA’s mission is to catalyze agricultural transformation in Africa through innovation-driven and sustainable productivity increases and access to finance that improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers.

    AGRA is implementing a five year Micro Reform for African Agriculture Business (MIRA) project in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania. MIRA will provide these government with access to high quality local and international technical assistance to identify, prioritize and reform specific agricultural regulations that currently limit private investment in Agribusiness operating in small holder’s agricultural value chains.

    In doing so, MIRA project will help to build the capacity of African governments to contentiously review and reform regulations that unintentionally limit private investment in local agribusinesses operating in Ethiopia.

    As part of its support to Ethiopia, AGRA’s Policy and Advocacy Program (PAP) recently provided a grant support to the Ethiopian Seed Association to build local capacity to support the development of enabling environment for the Ethiopian seed sector. The Ethiopian Seed Association (ESA) was established to advocate for and voice the interest of its members, both private and public seed companies.

    ESA will implement the project in collaboration with the Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA) and Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources (MoANR). As part of the project ESA would like to identify key policies, regulations, administrative practices, institutional setups and any other disincentives such as duties and taxes, and cumbersome licensing and registration processes that limit the growth of private seed sector in Ethiopia and come up with viable set of solutions to address the challenges.

    Context of the consultancy

    The commercial seed sector generally contributes to meeting about 15% of farmers’ demand for seed across all crops. The private seed sector is increasingly becoming essential in supply seeds for the agriculture sector. However, its production capacity and its participation in the distribution and marketing of seeds is limited only to hybrid maize and few vegetable seeds.

    The Growth and Transformation Plan phase II (GTP-II) currently being implemented in the country is focuses on expanding the production of food, feed, export and industrial row materials. This, in turn, increases the demand for certified seed of improved varieties which is a critical constraint in crop development.

    Improving the supply requires strengthening the seed systems through expanding investments by national and international public and private seed firms in the seed value chain with strong regulatory support.

    The Ethiopian Government has over the years developed and implemented seed policies, laws and regulations in order to strengthen the national seed industry and improve crop productivity and production.

    However, the seed sector is constrained by diverse bottlenecks across the seed value chain (variety development and release, production and marketing and regulatory issues) that are critical to its development.

    An enabling environment and effective support services must be in place for the private seed sector to ensure availability of the required quantity and quality of seed to small holder farmers. It is therefore essential to identify priority problems to enable private sector play its role in the national seed industry.

    Therefore, the AGRA would like to commission a study in support of the ESA to identify, analyze and document major policies, regulations, administrative practices and institutional setups that contain private seed sector development in Ethiopia and identify alternatives solutions to remove such bottlenecks.

    The ESA and its partners will use the documented evidence to improve the enabling environment to accelerate the development of the seed sector in Ethiopia.

    Main objectives of the consultancy

    AGRA is looking to hire a consulting firm to undertake the proposed study. The consultant will be expected to:

  • Identify, prioritize, analyze and document key policy, regulatory, institutional and administrative bottlenecks that constrain the development of the private seed sector in Ethiopia.

  • Identify alternative solutions to address the bottlenecks, conduct benefit-cost analysis of the alternatives and recommend solutions.
  • Particular emphasis should be given to the following issues affecting the private seed sector in Ethiopia

  • Investment requirements: land leasing, licensing, incentive mechanisms, etc.
  • Organization/administration and enforcement
  • Variety release and registration system
  • Seed production and distribution (marketing)
  • Seed quality control and assurance system
  • Quarantine and phytosanitary measures

  • Marketing/distribution (access, pricing, transportation, etc.)
  • Promotion of varieties and farmers adoption

    However, for further in-depth analysis the consultant should prioritize from a long list to a handful of key issues based on ease or difficulty of reform and potential impact to the private seed industry, to smallholder farmers and the country in general if the reforms successfully undertaken. Some of the potential benefits to be considered include not limited to:

  • Accelerate adoption of agricultural technologies (technology transfer, volume of production, improve the supply of technological options and food security etc.
  • Facilitate and enhance the supply of improved seed
  • Encourage local and foreign seed companies to invest in the seed sector
  • Impact in strengthening the seed business and facilitate the supply of certified seed for small holder farmers

    Chief of Party II – REAAP, Ethiopia

    Band: E

    FLSA: Exempt

    Reports To: Country Representative

    Project Background

    Catholic Relief Services (CRS) has worked in Ethiopia since 1958. For more than 50 years, CRS has taken the lead in responding to natural and man-made shocks affecting Ethiopia’s most vulnerable communities.

    Moving beyond emergency response, CRS’ disaster mitigation and recovery projects in drought and flood-prone areas have rebuilt individual and community assets through non-food aid in the form of agriculture, livestock, health, nutrition, livelihoods support and water and sanitation assistance.

    The Resilience through Enhanced Adaptation, Action-learning, and Partnership (REAAP) activity is a USAID-funded (OFDA, the Global Climate Change and Feed the Future Initiatives) Community Managed Disaster Risk Reduction activity. CRS leads the activity in consortium with one local and two international partners.

    REAAP activity is expected to sustainably increase resilience and reduce long term vulnerability to current and future climate change and climate-related shocks and stresses in communities in six Woredas of East Hararghe (Meta, Fedis and Midhega Tola) and West Hararghe (Mieso, Oda Bultum, and Tulo) Zones of Oromia Regional State.

    REAAP has reached 370,000 out of the total of 475,000 people (95,000 households) in 100 kebeles in three livelihood zones (farming, agro-pastoralist and pastoralist). REAAP achieved some of its result by strengthening horizontal linkages to consortium partners and other initiatives and, vertically to GoE-led food security, forecasting, agricultural growth and disaster management structures.

    Through the CMDRR approach and Participatory Disaster Risk Assessment (PDRA) process, communities have invested in their own development, even during the el Nino drought.

    Knowledge Management Consultant

    Terms Of Reference

    Position: Knowledge Management Consultant

    Location: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    Duration: Four (4) weeks

    Start Date: early to mid February (must be completed by March 15th, 2017)

    Application Deadline: January 20th, 2017

    Introduction

    The Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA) is a strategy and delivery oriented government agency created to help accelerate the growth and transformation of Ethiopia’s agriculture sector. The Agency’s mandate is focused solely on improving the livelihoods of smallholder farmers across the country.

    ATA’s structure and function is focused on nimble, innovative and results-oriented support to a range of partners in the agriculture sector. The Synergos Institute, a global nonprofit organization that helps solve complex problems of poverty, works with the ATA in Ethiopia to build capacity for systems-shifting collaborations in the agricultural sector and to support ATA’s development as a high-performing organization.

    In support of ATA, Synergos seeks to contract a consulting firm on a four week basis to assess the ATA’s knowledge management needs and provide recommendations on how best to address them.

    This work is expected to serve as a basis on which the ATA can build more robust knowledge management systems and practices into its overall structures to ensure that the organization is appropriately capturing, storing, and sharing the implicit and explicit knowledge that it is generating.

    The consultant will be expected to work collaboratively with relevant ATA departments and stakeholders to ensure the final recommendations take into account its existing IT infrastructure and resources, staff skills, and organizational priorities.

    Final recommendations should be realistic and fit for purpose. The consultant will require a strong background in knowledge management as well as proven experience in conducting similar assessments and recommendations.

    Background

    Since its inception in 2010, the ATA has been involved in a wide range of initiatives aimed at addressing systemic bottlenecks in Ethiopia’s agriculture sector.

    During this time the ATA has grown dramatically in both size, currently employing nearly 400 staff spread between five offices, and scope such that the systems that used to exist for sharing knowledge – team meetings and other formal and informal engagement when all staff were in the same office - are no longer possible.

    The ATA’s role has also evolved, and the ATA increasingly is taking on a coordination and capacity building function, while also leading in the implementation of targeted, strategic initiatives. The result of this disbursement and growth in size, scope, and complexity is that the previous ways of exchanging knowledge are no longer viable.

    Having now entered its second five-year phase, the ATA wants to consolidate its gains and strengthen its internal systems to support this growth in size and responsibility. This includes ensuring that it has the proper systems in place to capture and utilize the knowledge that staff and partners are gaining and developing.

    Without a strong knowledge management system there is a significant risk that new ATA staff and counterparts will duplicate efforts or repeat mistakes. At the same time, a number of international stakeholders, both development partners and other national governments, have expressed keen interest in learning from the ATA in order to adapt its model and apply it to other contexts.

    However, the ATA does not yet have a comprehensive knowledge management strategy, tools, or implementation plan to support its goal of being able to capture its learning in a strategic and easily accessible manner.

    In the absence of an overarching approach, there are several fragmented and uncoordinated initiatives that have been led by different departments. The ATA is now at a stage that it needs to pull these together and create a more structured, integrated, and strategic approach to knowledge management that can guide knowledge management efforts across the entire organization.

    Objectives, Scope of Services and Expected Deliverables of the International Consultancy The services of a consulting firm are now sought to support the ATA in defining its knowledge management needs, clearly identifying strategic interventions, and articulating an implementation plan that is tailored, realistic, driven by clear milestones, and takes into account available and anticipated resources.

    The specific scope of services to be provided by the international consultancy and the expected deliverables are described below

    (i) Conduct an audit of existing knowledge management and information sharing initiatives and/or potential tools

    o Meet with relevant staff to understand how knowledge management has been dealt with historically within the organization

    o Review existing ‘knowledge management’ type initiatives that exist within the organization. This would include but not necessarily be limited to:

     A resource/document database run by the Analytics team

     An office intranet run by the Communications team

    o Review the ways in which the ATA uses different information management and sharing platforms to manage its work. This would include but not necessarily be limited to:

     The ATA’s use of Dropbox for filesharing purposes

     The ATA’s new ERP system

    (ii) Lead a process to support the ATA to define its knowledge management needs and priorities

    o Provide ATA senior management and leadership teams with necessary briefings to help them better understand KM principles and best practices, such that they are equipped to help articulate a clear set of KM priorities for the ATA

    Physical Therapist Technical Support

    Information on the context

    Ethiopia, with a population of about 100 million, is the second most populous country in Sub-Saharan Africa. One of the world’s oldest civilizations, Ethiopia is also one of the world’s poorest. At US$1800 (average for the 2007-09 period), Ethiopia's per capita GDP is lower than the Sub-Sahara Africa average.

    Over the past two decades, there has been significant progress in key human development indicators: Primary school enrolments have quadrupled, child mortality has almost been cut in half, and the number of people with access to clean water has more than doubled. More recently, poverty reduction has accelerated.

    The poverty headcount, which stood at 56 percent in 1999/00, fell to 39 percent in 2006/07. These gains paint a picture of improved well-being in Ethiopia. Notwithstanding the progress in critical aspects of human development, Ethiopia was a long way from achieving some of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015, given the country’s very low starting point.

    Intern (m/f) in Support to the African Union Border Programme

    Field of activity

    The legacy of Africa’s colonial history for many states includes numerous post-independence national boundaries that are unclear and sometimes violently disputed.

The African Union (AU) considers ill-defined borders as potential sources of conflict, especially when natural resources are discovered in the border regions.

    Such borders are a threat to peace and security, and they hinder regional integration, economic growth and development. In 2007, the AU launched the African Union Border Programme (AUBP) as a direct response to these risks.

    On behalf of the German Federal Foreign Office (AA), GIZ is assisting with the implementation of the Border Programme across the continent, and at regional, national and local levels.

    The project is led from Addis Ababa and reflects the different levels of the AUBP: Support to AU Member States for border management; Cooperation with regional economic communities; Support for the AUBP unit and other border-related entities within the AU Commission.

    Reflecting the AUBP’s core components, the GIZ support encompasses delimitation and demarcation, cross-border cooperation and capacity development on the continental, regional, national and local level.

    Grants Manager

    Job Title: Grants Manager

    Job Location: Addis Ababa Ethiopia

    Reporting to: Country Director

    General Description of the Programme:

    GOAL has been working in Ethiopia since the early 1980s delivering a range of Programmes focusing on humanitarian emergencies and long term development responses mainly in the areas of nutrition, WASH, child protection, livelihoods, and health.

    Since 2005 GOAL Ethiopia has implemented a complex multi-sectoral Humanitarian Response Programme (HRP) that aims to respond in a timely and efficient manner to sudden onset crises country-wide, with a major focus on nutrition.

    Through this programme, GOAL has developed significant expertise in Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM), including capacity-building of MoH staff, nutrition surveys and assessments, community outreach, and therapeutic and supplementary feeding activities.

    Although the initial focus was on nutrition, over the years the programme has grown to include health (such as responding to disease outbreaks), drought response (including water provision, infrastructure repair), support to displaced communities, and agricultural actions (such as seed distribution).

    Our HRP is committed to ensuring that emergency Programmes are implemented according to humanitarian and best practice principles, and that responses are linked to crisis recovery and longer-term development work, and help mitigate the impact of emergencies through disaster risk reduction activities and building community resilience.

    GOAL’s rural development programme focuses on livelihoods, food security, health, nutrition, and WASH, incorporating behaviour change as a key element of our programming. In addition, through local partners we implement a street children’s programme in Addis Ababa and Hawassa. GOAL Ethiopia utilises a strengths-based approach to all development activities.

    GOAL has played a significant role in the response to the refugee influx into Ethiopia since 2011, when we began supporting Somali refugees in Dollo Ado camp. Today, with funding from BPRM and ECHO, GOAL Ethiopia provides comprehensive nutrition services for South Sudanese refugees in two camps in Gambella (Tierkadi and Kule), and two camps in Afar (Berhale and Asayita). In addition GOAL manages the comprehensive water supply and sanitation in Berhale refugee camp.

    In 2016, in response to the El Niño-induced drought, GOAL Ethiopia expanded its operational presence from 25 to 69 Woredas and was operational in 6 Regions. GOAL Ethiopia’s current major donor partnerships include USAID/OFDA, UNOCHA, ECHO, EU, BPRM, and Irish Aid.

This will include funding of green technologies where appropriate.EP de-risks innovation and spurs industry coordination among providers of financial services and their supporting markets to increase financial inclusion.

    Background specific to this assignment

    In January 2015, Accounting and Auditing Board of Ethiopia (AABE) was established pursuant to Financial Reporting Proclamation No. 847/2014. AABE prepared an IFRS Implementation Roadmap requiring all financial institutions and public enterprises to implement IFRS commencing July 1, 2017, and to make adequate preparations during the period covering May 2016 through June 2017.

    DBE recognizes and expects that a proper implementation of IFRS would result in far reaching benefits to its overall operations. Among areas that would be impacted would be the bank’s core banking system, accounting and control systems, contractual agreements, and human resources operations.

    DBE also acknowledges that it does not have the expertise required to implement full IFRS across its operations. Hence, DBE requested the support of EP in acquiring the appropriate IFRS expertise to assist the bank in implementing IFRS and activities related to the implementation of IFRS.

    In late October 2016, EP hired an IFRS expert to conduct Phase I of the assignment to assist DBE in proper implementation of full IFRS activities arising from IFRS conversion process. Phase 1 assignment, clarified the current gaps to reach IFRS and provided DBE with plans to become IFRS complaint by July 2017.

    The El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is ‘a naturally occurring phenomenon involving fluctuating ocean temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific, coupled with changes in the atmosphere.

    This phenomenon has a major influence on climate patterns in various parts of the world and mainly associated with hazards such as heavy rains, floods and drought.’ It occurs every two to seven years and can last up to 18 months. Strong and moderate El Niño events have a warming effect on average global surface temperatures.

    One of the most recent and strong event caused by El Niño happened in 2015 resulting in the highest global temperatures in more than a century. This has resulted in forcing thousands to flee their dry or flooded lands, causing significant crop production declines and food price increases, affecting water supplies and leaving millions of people food-insecure.

    The latest cycle, which started in March 2015, hit hardest in some of the world’s developing countries such as Ethiopia, with children among the worst affected. Ethiopia, as a result of El Niño, has experienced the worst drought situation in the last decades.

    In response to this emergency situation in Ethiopia, and the immediate impact of the drought on people’s life and the actions required are documented in existing evidence, there seems to be a knowledge gap on the long term impacts of the drought on children’s well-being and on the appropriate mitigating actions to undertake.

    Therefore, the generation of knowledge on this topic will contribute to better design programme interventions to respond to the immediate impacts and sustain the gains for children in the long run.

    SRD Center is preparing a proposal for a study to analyze the long term impacts of El Niño on poorest households and well-being of children in Ethiopia focusing on regions and districts affected by the recent drought including Afar, Oromia, Somali, SNNPR and Tigray.

    SRD is seeking to hire an international consultant with intensive research experience in households and child protection.

    Qualifications:

  • Extensive research expertise and experience (at least 8 years) and a strong commitment to undertake the study,
  • Sound knowledge of research approaches on poorest households and well-being of children.
  • A good understanding of long term impacts of El Niño on poorest households and well-being of children in Ethiopia.
  • Knowledge of institutional issues related to development programming (including funding, administration, the role of the UN system, partnerships, human rights and sustainable development issues).
  • Familiarity with UN system and programmes of intervention with a focus on programmes on host communities and refugees and their evaluation.
  • Team leadership and management, interpersonal/communication skills.
  • A demonstrated high level of professionalism and an ability to work independently and in high pressure situations under tight deadlines.
  • English language capabilities is a must.
  • Excellent writing and reporting skills.

    Please note that CVs will be assessed on an ongoing basis and therefore qualified candidates are encouraged to send their applications as early as possible.
