Request for Concept Note - Strengthening Agricultural Input and Output Markets in Africa (SAIOMA)
On September 28, 2012 AGRA and USAID entered into a Cooperative Agreement (AID‐OAA‐A‐12‐00061) to implement a three-year Global Development Alliance (GDA) partnership in Kenya, Malawi and Zambia with funding from USAID/Bureau of Food Security, AGRA and its' partners. The fundamental thrust of this partnership is to sustainably reduce poverty and hunger in line with the US Government's Feed the Future (FtF) Initiative. The program is to help Strengthen Agricultural Input and Output Markets in Africa with the ultimate goal of promoting inclusive agriculture sector growth in selected countries in East and Southern Africa by the end of 2015. The primary beneficiaries for this program are rural smallholder farmers, most of whom are women.
Request for proposals to conduct mid-term review of the AGRA Market Access Program
The overall objective of the mid-term review is to conduct an independent assessment that will establish the achievements of the Market Access Program to-date in relation to expected early outcomes highlighting what has worked well and what can be improved to enhance the possibilities of achieving the program objectives. The review will also determine the extent to which key program activities and processes are or not leading to the achievement of the intended goal and identify any changes in the program implementation environment that may have occurred in order to establish whether the underlying assumptions at the program inception still hold.
