IIRR Rapid Assessment on Availability and Use of ICTs based solutions by the Livestock Value Chain Actors in the Pastoral areas Across Western Kenya…

International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR)
 

Terms of Reference: Rapid Assessment on Availability and Use of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) based solutions by the Livestock Value Chain Actors in the Pastoral areas Across Western Kenya and North Eastern Uganda
 

1. Background: The International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), Jointly with Inter Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the IGAD Center for Pastoral Areas and Livestock Development (IGAD/ICPALD), with Support from the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is implementing the project ‘Building Resilient Pastoral Communities through Cross-border Livestock Value Chains in the IGAD Region’. 

 

The project objective is to contribute to the building of economically and environmentally resilient livelihood systems among pastoral communities in the IGAD region.


To achieve its objective , the project will address a set of closely linked constraints that include:

  • low productivity of livestock agriculture and limited engagement of pastoralists in value addition activities; 
  • lack of adequate preparedness of pastoralist communities in dealing with climate shocks; 
  • limited use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) solutions in critical cross-border livestock value chain nodes; 
  • weak bargaining capacity of livestock keepers in (Informal Cross Border Livestock Trade) ICBLT and limited market diversification opportunities; and
  • limited understanding of the role of ICBLT in pastoral livelihoods and in subnational economies. 

The demonstration of these integrated, market-driven approaches in a small geographic area (pilot) across Western Kenya and North Eastern Uganda will provide successful models for replication in the wider IGAD region.
 

The use of ICT based solutions can among other interventions, boost livestock productivity by improving pastoralists’ access to market information (input and output), productivity enhancing technologies and extension services and by reducing production risks. 

Mobile phones, geographic information systems (GIS), radio, TV, videos, geo-positioning systems (GPS), innovative software, and other technologies can also enhance pastoralists’ adaptability to climate shocks. 

New applications, wider and better connectivity, and more durable, cheaper hardware have led to the creation of user-friendly and localized information tools elsewhere.

The project is now seeking to recruit qualified consultant to undertake a rapid assessment on Availability and Use of ICT based solutions by the Pastoralists Livestock Value Chain Actors across Western Pokot in Kenya and Karamojong in North Eastern Uganda to inform its’ strategy for building resilient pastoral communities through ICLBT in the IGAD Region.


2. Scope of Work
 

The objective of the consultancy is to undertake a rapid assessment on availability, use and effectiveness of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) based solutions by the Livestock Value Chain Actors across western Pokot in Western Kenya and Karamojong in North Eastern Uganda
 

More specifically, the consultancy will consist of, but is not restricted to, the following tasks and linked deliverables:

  • Review existing reports and documents relevant to the assignment,
  • Assess the specific knowledge/information requirements of the livestock producers and key actors in terms of enhancing production and marketing of livestock and livestock products
  • Identify the existing ICT based solutions at each node of the chain and map the actors involved in these initiatives (e.g. service and content providers)
  • Assess the level of awareness about available ICT technologies, their accessibility and uptake by the actors in the pastoralists livestock value chain, with special focus on the producers (pastoralist- men and women), small traders (men and women) and processors within the project area.
  • Capture and record innovative ICT solutions being used, or available to be used in the pastoralist’s livestock value chain, identifying best practices for rolling out and scaling up, with a special focus on usage among men and women.
  • Identify and examine the obstacles to uptake and scaling-up of ICT for livestock production and marketing in the target areas
  • Identify opportunities to promote awareness of the opportunities for ICT application and integration amongst the key actors along the value chain and in particular amongst the livestock producers, small traders and processors.
  • Propose initiatives to accelerate the adoption and usage of ICT in the livestock value chain by the different actors along the value chain nodes.

3. Timetable, Methodology and Key Deliverables
 

The study will take place between July and August 2016 and the exercise will take a total of 12 days during which the consultant is expected to complete the above scope of work. 

During the period, the consultant is expected to review relevant documents, visit project sites in Western Pokot and Karamoja to consult with relevant stakeholders, present draft report and come up with a final study report.

  • First draft of ICT rapid assessment report
  • Presentation of the draft assessment report to IIRR and the project partners.

IIRR Rapid appraisal to assess current status of pastoralists farming institutions and platforms in Western Pokot in Kenya and Karamojong in North…

International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR)
 

Terms of Reference: Rapid appraisal to assess current status of pastoralists farming institutions and platforms in Western Pokot in Kenya and Karamojong in North Eastern Uganda
 

1. Background: Informal cross-border livestock trade (ICBLT) in the Inter Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD) region supports the livelihoods of a wide range of value chain actors representing many enterprises including livestock traders, transporters, slaughter facilities / processors, feed manufacturers, veterinary drug suppliers, local authorities and central governments. 

 

These notwithstanding, ICBLT is beset with several challenges that emanate partly from the inadequacy of essential services that supports the production system itself and partly from the predominance of the informal nature of the cross-border trade that is responsible for much of the livestock off take.


The International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), Jointly with IGAD and the IGAD Center for Pastoral Areas and Livestock Development (IGAD/ICPALD), with Support from the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is implementing the project ‘Building Resilient Pastoral Communities through Cross-border Livestock Value Chains in the IGAD Region’. 

The project objective is to contribute to the building of economically and environmentally resilient livelihood systems among pastoral communities in the IGAD region.


To achieve its objective , the project will address a set of closely linked constraints that include: 

  • low productivity of livestock agriculture and limited engagement of pastoralists in value addition activities;
  • lack of adequate preparedness of pastoralist communities in dealing with climate shocks: limited use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) solutions in critical cross-border livestock value chain nodes: weak bargaining capacity of livestock keepers in ICBLT and limited market diversification opportunities: and 
  • limited understanding of the role of ICBLT in pastoral livelihoods and in sub-national economies.

The demonstration of these integrated, market-driven approaches in a small geographic area (pilot) across Western Kenya and North Eastern Uganda will provide successful models for replication in the wider IGAD region.
 

A major focal point of interventions is the capacity building of the grassroots-level pastoral organizations, platforms or associations in the project area to improve service delivery to the pastoralists’ livestock keepers – women, youth and men.

A variety of studies, including some commissioned by IGAD LPI, continually point at multiplicity of international, regional, national and local policies and institutions impacting on the livelihoods of the livestock dependent poor in the IGAD member states. 

However, despite this realization, an overview of these institutions and their role in addressing the livestock sector and the livelihoods of the livestock dependent poor does not exist. 

The project is seeking to recruit qualified consultant to undertake a rapid assessment of existing pastoralists’ farming institutions and platforms in the project areas to inform its’ strategy for building resilient pastoral communities through ICLBT.
 

2. Scope and Tasks of the Consultancy
 

The objective of the consultancy is to undertake a rapid assessment / baseline study on pastoralist livestock institutions and platforms across western Pokot in Kenya and Karamojong in North Eastern Uganda. 

More specifically, the consultancy will consist of, but is not restricted to, the following tasks:
 

Specific objectives:

  • Carry out a desk study of reports and documents relevant to the assignment
  • Identify the institutions which represent the interests of the local pastoralists’ livestock value chain
  • Assess the roles, responsibilities and effectiveness of the pastoralists’ institutions in delivering their mandates.
  • Assess the institutional and governance arrangements in place in these organizations to support livestock related work;
  • Assess the inclusiveness of the pastoralists’ institutions in terms of participation of and service delivery to pastoralists’ women, men and youth.
  • Identify capacity building requirements needed to support the organizations to deliver their mandate

3. Timetable, Methodology and Key Deliverables
 

The study will take place between July and August 2016 and the exercise will take a total of 12 days during which the consultant is expected to complete the above scope of work. 

During the period, the consultant is expected to review relevant documents, visit project sites in Western Pokot and Karamoja to consult with relevant stakeholders, present draft report and come up with a final study report.

  • Presentation of the draft report to IIRR and the project partners
  • A final report in soft and one hard copy

4. Consultant’s Qualification and Core Competences

  • At least Masters Degree in business related disciplines, development studies, or agricultural economics.
  • At least 10 years demonstrated experience in agribusiness or livestock research and/or practice, with a good understanding of value chain development.
