GAIN is currently collecting LSFF monitoring data from the market and food production sites in India. 

We are working with local partners to collect, clean and report on the monitoring data but we would like to compile and merge the data from the different sources for more in-depth analysis. 

Therefore, GAIN is looking for a research analyst to manage the data and undertake analysis as well as support the preparation of analytics and reports of results to key stakeholders (industry, nutrition partners, government, NGOs) presented in a user-friendly format that informs them of program performance along the pathway to impact.

Cities face a significant double burden of malnutrition. Fundamental to the realisation of inclusive and resilient cities and urban communities are efforts to ensure sustainable access to and availability of nutritious, safe and desirable food, for all, especially those most vulnerable.  Today, this urban challenge is exacerbated further by responses to COVID-19, including those that impact food supply chains, food safety, food prices and health and well-being.

The purpose of this Request for Proposals is to identify and select a service provider specialised in web development and technical maintenance, with the goal of creating a new website (Knowledge Platform) under the design project management of GAIN.

The consultant will support GAIN’s Keeping Food Markets Working Project in Kenya, which in response to the global pandemic, is targeted at supporting and help sustain core food systems, workers and markets during COVID-19 emergency. Poor diets are already responsible for the majority of the world’s global burden of disease: the COVID-19 virus and the control responses to it threaten secondary effects of increased food prices, food shortages, civil unrest and exacerbate existing inequalities (based on, for example, income, gender, and ethnicity). The potential strangulation of food systems from collapsing food value chains, including the devastating impact on markets and effective demand, is capable of enormously amplifying health and social stability problems- threatening a food crisis and a “second wave” of disease and public health problems affecting the most vulnerable due to hunger and deteriorating diets.
