Background

II. Job Purpose and Organizational Context

The UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021 embraces the complexity of development and commits the organization to helping countries find faster, more durable solutions to achieve Agenda 2030. Important development trends like urbanization, climate change, and inequality pose significant challenges on our path to achieve the 2030 agenda of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

UNDP has begun incubating a number of strategic initiatives aimed at ensuring UNDP is ‘fit for purpose’ to deliver a new generation of solutions in line with the challenges the world faces. One such key strategic initiatives is the Country Accelerator Lab Network. The initiative is a recognition that increasingly interrelated development challenges require going beyond business as usual and single point, linear and silver bullet responses in development. Instead, they call for an interdisciplinary approaches and non-linear solutions that crowd in the collective efforts of variety of partners and tap into local insights and the knowledge of people closest to the problem and the solutions. The initiative is also a recognition and an investment in the emerging momentum among a growing number of UNDP Country Offices around joining together disruptive, cutting edge methodologies with contextual, country-based insights and expertise to accelerate impact and progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals.

US:

We are building the largest and fastest learning global network of Accelerator Labs (initially setting up 60 labs in 60 countries) embedded within UNDP’s global architecture and country platforms. The new offering builds on the latest thinking from the fields of complexity science, lead user innovation and collective intelligence to accelerate development impact.

Our network will surface and reinforce locally sourced solutions at scale while mobilizing a wide and dynamic partnership of actors contributing knowledge, resources and experience. The idea is to transform our collective approach by introducing new protocols, backed by evidence and practice, which accelerate the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. This will enable the global community to collectively learn from local knowledge and ingenuity at a speed and at a scale that our societies and planet require. This will be achieved by:

-Building on locally-sourced solutions, finding things that work and expanding on them;

-Rapid testing and iteration to implement what works and go beyond the obvious solutions;

-Combining the best understanding, ideas and expertise to generate collective knowledge;

-Accelerating progress by bringing expertise, creativity and collective intelligence to bear.

The Accelerator Lab will undertake i) external facing interventions addressing priority development challenges, and ii) internally facing experiments to embed new ways of doing development within the existing UNDP portfolio.

You:

You are capable and excited about starting, design and managing activities, direct engagement with local communities and collaboration across global networks. You are driven by learning new things, figuring out how they work and translating them across sectors.

You have a natural inclination to interdisciplinarity, cross cultural mindset and cross sectoral experience with the cosmopolitan attraction for diversity. You are driven by a strong sense of purpose and commitment to make change happen and a keen eye to identify emerging opportunities and ‘at the edge’ trends. You are open to discovery and exploration, capable of articulating insights and ideas through visual thinking, open to serendipity and discovery yet are pragmatic and constructive working with public sector authorities. You are comfortable with ambiquity, capable of zooming out for context and zooming in for content and execution- sharp in pursuit of objectives, fast at adapting and changing course when needed. You have superb compentencies in program and portfolio management, are at ease with decision-making processes and dynamics of different models of governance.

You are curious, quirky and fun, natural strategic thinkers and talented designers. You understand systems, the good, the bad and the ugly, and are capable of working within them to make change, leverage technology to extend, enhance and multiply exploration, discovery and execution. You are digitally savy, you hack tools, and you are keen to be a part of a large global organization exhibiting United Nations values.

Palladium is a child-safe organisation, and screens applicants for suitability to work with children. We also provide equal employment to all participants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran or marital status.

Project Overview and Role

Project Overview

The Improving Market Systems in Rwanda for Agriculture (IMSAR) is an initiative funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), which aims to stimulate growth and reduce poverty in Rwanda. IMSAR has an additional 3 years from May 2019 to finalise its implementation. IMSAR is using the market systems development approach to improve the functioning of agricultural markets, ensuring that small-scale farmers benefit in the process. Following this approach, IMSAR supports the testing and adoption of new agricultural business and financing models, technologies and improved agronomic practices.

The implementation of IMSAR is being managed by Palladium in partnership with Swisscontact. Palladium is a global impact firm, working to link social progress and commercial growth. For the past 50 years, Palladium has been helping clients to see the world as interconnected – by formulating strategies, building partnerships, and implementing programs that have a lasting social and financial impact.

Assignment Background

The Rwanda Livestock Master Plan (LMP) identifies four key livestock value chains: red meat and milk (from indigenous cattle, sheep, and goats); dairy with crossbred cows; chicken and pigs as producing the greatest productivity increases contributing to national economic development objectives and the long-run development of the sector.

The LMP envisions an efficiently functioning livestock sector with highly market-oriented farming and processing as well as dynamic marketing in order to supply consumers with high quality and safe meat. This will contribute towards closing the national gap in meat production and consumption, improving household food and nutritional security, achieving income growth and poverty alleviation and contributing to growth in national income.

The national herd in 2016/17 was approximately 1.39 million cattle, 700,000 sheep, 2.94 million goats, 1.8 million pigs and about 7 million layers, broilers and indigenous chickens, producing currently about 94.2 thousand Metric Tons (MT) of meat, 747 thousand MT of milk, and 243 million eggs per year. In addition, the herd provides about 6.8 million MT of organic fertilizer. About half (46%) of the dressed meat in Rwanda comes from cattle, followed by pigs (21%). Chicken and goats make up 17% and 13% of dressed meat respectively, and sheep only 3%.

In 2014/15 the per capita meat consumption for the people of Rwanda was only 7.9 kg/year for meat, 59 liters/year for milk and 0.63 kg per year for eggs. Currently, meat intake in Rwanda stands at 10kg per person on an annual basis while the international standards is 45kg per person per year (MINAGRI/ RAB). The new Strategic Plan for Agriculture Transformation (PSTA4) through which the Livestock Master Plan will be implemented, will seek to increase meat consumption to at least 40kg per year per capita. By 2031, its projected that pigs will have highest contribution towards meat requirements / production- 48% of from pigs, 32% from chicken, 14% cattle, 5% goats and 1% sheep.

Livestock markets in Rwanda faces several constraints that can be grouped in several categories: genetics (breeds), inadequate / low capacity animal health, feed production and feed raw materials, poor animal husbandry, collection, marketing and processing, poor quality standards. Private sector led artificial insemination and animal health support services need to be introduced. In a recent round table organised for pig agribusinesses and feeds companies, market actors expressed major constraints in lack of quality and affordable feed as a result of high costs of raw materials and production. Feed companies prioritise production of cow and poultry feeds. Processing of pork products in Rwanda is of low standards, with large amounts of pig meat being sold through informal markets.
IMSAR has undertaken a detailed analysis on three selected agricultural markets in Rwanda, finance, inputs and aggregation markets. Within the inputs market a number of intervention areas have been identified which IMSAR will pilot to begin addressing those constraints, aiming to shift the system to better service livestock producers and market actors within the country. These includes animal feed, pigs and chicken genetics, vertical integration between producers and aggregators/ processing companies, insect meal as protein substitute to soya, scaling up fish, poultry and pigs farming, breeding models, fattening programs and processing, fish fingerlings and feeds and piloting chicken pullets’ model.

IMSAR is looking for technical support in order to guide the IMSAR team to expand interventions in the livestock market.

Responsibilities

Scope of Work

Broadly, the purpose of this assignment is to provide ongoing technical support to the IMSAR team to explore opportunities in the livestock market and advise how IMSAR can intervene to improve access to improved breeding/genetics, farming and processing systems, vertical integration between producers (farmers) and inputs markets as well as local and regional markets for meat products.
This contract will be delivered on a call-down basis, with the IMSAR team bringing in the consultant to advise on certain key areas of work that are needed to move forward.

The consultancy will include the following:

Intervention Design:

Provide remote and in-country technical support along with the IMSAR Inputs Senior Market Manager and Markets Lead to identify and assess potential private sector companies (such as breeders, feed companies, farmers, processors, abattoirs, regulators) that are interested in expanding current business models, or trying out new business opportunities, are willing to invest and whose interests are congruent with IMSAR.
Review existing early engagements within IMSAR’s livestock pipeline. This includes providing quality assurance inputs and feedback.
Identify potential new areas of focus or business models for the Rwandan Livestock sector that IMSAR could look at piloting, including identifying new business models in the region or globally and advising on how they could be adapted and piloted under IMSAR.
Revise and update the sections in the IMSAR market assessment on livestock undertaken during the inception phase. This will include reviewing and reassessing the market constraints and intervention ideas or areas identified and providing advice on areas for improvement.
Work with the IMSAR Inputs Senior Market Manager to identify and assess potential private sector financial services providers partners (e.g. breeders, feed companies, farmers, processors, abattoirs, regulators) that are interested in expanding their agricultural product and service offering, are willing to invest and whose interests are congruent with IMSAR.

Provide technical assistance to the IMSAR team to collaborate with these private sector partners to deliver on new opportunities within this market. This could include business opportunities that deliver innovative products and services for livestock producers and agribusinesses. This includes identifying potential markets/areas/partners and working with the team in the design and development of interventions. This will also involve technical support to the team as they develop intervention plans.
