The purpose of this RFP is to engage services of a Service Provider to undertake a case study assessment to understand the effects of the Reconstructing Food Systems (RFS) Project on small- and medium-sized enterprises in Mozambique and provide lessons for future similar approaches.

The purpose of this case study assessment is to understand how the support provided by RFS did or did not enable the firm to recover from the effects of the cyclone, how the subsequent pandemic impacted their operations, and whether and how the RFS support had an impact on firms’ resilience to the effects of the pandemic.

The assessment should also examine the experience of firms’ RFS participation to improve design and implementation of similar approaches in the future.
Results of the assessment will improve our understanding of how to implement supply-side approaches to improve access to nutritious foods in emergency contexts and by building their long-term resilience to shocks and stresses.

The purpose of this RFP is to engage the services of a Service Provider to develop the campaign strategy, creative approach, and media campaign. These inputs will support the execution of a third-party advocacy strategy for strengthening governance and accountability on large-scale food fortification in Nigeria. The third-party advocates (individuals and organisations) will be engaged to provide a voice for consumers targeting relevant decision-makers, government, and business. 

Our aspiration with the proposed third-party advocacy campaign is to unburden consumers of the responsibility of choosing between unfortified or falsely labelled food products and placing the burden squarely on food producers and regulatory agencies. The goal is to have more adequately fortified, safe and nutritious foods available to all consumers. This will be achieved in part by mobilising the voices of the third-party advocates on behalf of the Nigerian public to demand improved compliance by industry and improved enforcement by government & regulatory agencies.
