GAIN and HarvestPlus are collaborating to support the commercialisation of biofortified zinc wheat in the province of Punjab, where major wheat flour cultivation and production hubs are found. The commercial milling sector is seen as a key element for developing a market for biofortified wheat; therefore, the aim is to identify and work with millers in selected areas who are ready and willing to switch use from analogue variety to biofortified zinc wheat varieties and have the capacity to increase the supply of biofortified zinc wheat in the market. The programme focuses on five selected areas in the province of Punjab (i.e., Faisalabad, Multan, Khanewal, Bahawalpur, and Rahim Yar Khan). 

Policymakers are the main decision-makers regarding different nutrition and health programmes and policies in Pakistan. Considering this, GAIN and HarvestPlus are commissioning the development of an advocacy strategy, which will be used to inform activities that will be undertaken to influence policymakers and other key stakeholders to support the biofortified zinc wheat programme activities under the GAIN-HarvestPlus partnership to commercialise biofortified foods and biofortification in Pakistan more generally.

As part of this work, GAIN and HarvestPlus are jointly issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP). GAIN will be the administrative lead organisation for this RFP. The purpose of this RFP is to engage the services of a Service Provider to develop an advocacy strategy for the commercialisation of zinc wheat in Pakistan under the GAIN-HarvestPlus partnership to commercialise biofortified foods.

GAIN is currently implementing the Keeping Food Markets Working (KFMW) Programme in Kenya, which is an emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic, by offering rapid support to sustain core food systems, workers and markets during the pandemic. GAIN’s goal is to mitigate the collapse of food systems by supporting food markets and the value chain companies while strengthening equitable policy responses that can be delivered quickly to support continuity and protect the sustainability of key workers in food systems in Low and Middle-Income Countries, especially in Africa and Asia, which face potentially catastrophic supply and demand disruption. 

As such, one of the implementation pathways of KFMW seeks to have an elaborate understanding of how food markets have been impacted. Initial interventions demonstrate that there are major gaps in terms of behaviour change communication towards containment of COVID-19 by vendors and customers in markets. To address these gaps, GAIN in collaboration with the National Government and the County Governments of Kiambu and Machakos are in the process of rolling out a number of Information, Education and Communication materials.

The consultant will work with the  KFMW Kenya team and GAIN’s communications team to translate the various set of materials into Swahili and any other local language as advised, and where possible engage target audiences and contribute to the goals of the KFMW programme’s goals through consistent dissemination of the materials.

After showing proof of the use and viability of the data tracking system, the SBN secretariat (GAIN and WFP) seek a developer to configure and transfer the current excel-based tool to an online database. An online database would allow the SBN stakeholders (the secretariat, coordinators, and others) to track data on-demand, reduce the errors during input, and streamline reporting. An online open-source online platform, like DHIS2, is ideal based on its use by many SUN governments as well as the Civil Society Network’s database.  This may allow for some data connectivity as part of network convergence work- finding ways that the SUN networks within countries can align work and share data.

Nawiri interventions includes those which work with local private-sector actors (e.g., producers and processors) who support the value chains for milk and meat, as well as work to support the role of the private sector in the local food system more broadly. To help inform this work, GAIN, the partner on the consortium leading the Market and Food Systems work, will work alongside other partners on the CRS-led Nawiri consortium to undertake a pilot intervention to test the feasibility and potential effects of providing support to milk and meat producing businesses through grants and bespoke technical assistance. 

The overall goal is to examine whether such support can result in viable business models for SMEs to commercialise meat and milk products in Isiolo and Marsabit counties and specifically to reach vulnerable communities with those nutritious food products.

Vitamin A premix is fully imported items from several overseas sources as per the convenience of oil refineries. Therefore, the quality control and purity testing of vitamin A premix are important to ensure uniform standard quality of Vitamin A premix as well as to prevent importation of counterfeit premix. However, in Bangladesh, there is limited expertise on vitamin A premix purity testing to date which is adversely affecting the overall success of the oil fortification project.

The EatSafe (Evidence and Action Towards Safe, Nutritious Food) program aims to generate evidence and knowledge of the potential of increased consumer demand for safe food to substantially improve the safety of nutritious foods in informal market settings in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). It began activities in Nigeria in 2020 and is expanding to Ethiopia in 2021.

As part of this work, GAIN seeks to undertake a scoping review to understand perspectives and practices related to food safety among consumers and small-scale food vendors in Ethiopia. 

The review should include both peer-reviewed, published studies and "grey literature", with no restrictions placed on study type (i.e., including qualitative and quantitative studies, and cross-sectional and observational studies). 

The review will need to use transparent and reproducible methods in line with best practices for systematic scoping reviews. The general methodology for the review has already been developed and will be provided to the consultant, how can suggest adaptations to that methodology based on their own expertise and experience.

The review will be a key input into identifying strategies to improve food safety in informal markets in Ethiopia in a subsequent phase of the project. It is also expected to generate high-quality evidence, which may result in a published, peer-reviewed paper. 

GAIN seeks a consultant to undertake this review.
