Individual Consultant

Request for Recruitment of a Consultant or Consortia of Consultants to Develop a Communication Plan for Knowledge and Information Sharing and Produce Content for the Information Products

Background
: Agriculture is the mainstay of Kenya’s economy and the growth of the sector is crucial to the country’s overall economic and social development. 

Unfortunately climate change and variability threaten to worsen the performance of the important agricultural sector in Kenya, thereby increasing food insecurity especially among the very poor. 

Climate change for Kenya means, inter alia, increased variability and intensity of droughts and floods, more invasive species, and generally higher temperatures. 

All of these factors will render domestic agriculture less effective at meeting the nutrition needs of the nation. 

The agriculture sector is currently attempting reform aimed at converting agriculture into a vibrant commercially oriented enterprise. 

The planning and execution of this reform will have tremendous impact on the future state of PGRFA.

It is within this background and context that UNDP and its partners seek the services of a National consultant to review and analyze the existing PGRFA policies and frameworks and develop a Strategy Action Plan and Policy Paper. 

The consultant will focus on the existing and drafted agricultural and environmental policies in Kenya.

Overall objectives of the Consultancy: To mainstream the conservation and use of PGRFA into national climate change adaptation policy, programs and projects for enhanced food security and economic development.

Application Procedure
 
Interested and qualified candidates should submit their applications which should include the following:
  1. UNDP Personal History Form (P11) Template provided
