Heifer Project International Ethiopia Jobs 2024

In Ethiopia’s pastoralist and lowland areas, Heifer International Ethiopia collected and analyzed data for Living Income Benchmarking (LIB).

1. Overview

1.1.Context

Heifer is a global non-governmental development organization that strives to eradicate hunger and poverty in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Heifer has almost 75 years of experience in the development industry. Although Heifer International maintains operations in 60 countries worldwide, over time it began to concentrate on the 23 most impoverished and disaster-affected nations in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

To improve agricultural methods, Heifer Ethiopia established collaborations with both local and international development organizations when it first started operating in Ethiopia in 2004. Our primary areas of interest include programs related to animal feed, dairy farming, vegetable production, and livelihood enhancement, with a particular emphasis on the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR). We have increased the scope of our partnerships in recent years, collaborating closely with regional and local partners to support initiatives for agricultural development. Our efforts now include areas like Sidama, Oromia, and Amhara in addition to the SNNPR. Additionally, we assist the government’s development efforts in the nation’s lowlands and pastoralist areas, such as Somali, Afar, Gambella, and Benishangul-Gumuz, by providing Technical Assistance (TA) services to the Lowland Livelihoods Resilience Project (LLRP).

Programmatic areas of Heifer Ethiopia: Heifer Ethiopia focuses on agricultural development that includes both the crop and animal sectors. Its programs are diverse. To promote sustainable development, we make use of agribusiness value chains that include small ruminant farming, dairy, honey production, poultry, and horticulture. Furthermore, we provide top priority to climate resilience programs to lessen the negative effects of environmental issues on agricultural communities. One of our main goals is to encourage entrepreneurship and the subsequent generation of jobs. Using deliberate interventions in livelihood enhancement initiatives, our goal is to enable people and communities to achieve sustained economic stability and prosperity.

 

The Lowlands Resilience Project (LRRP): The project’s duration is from 2019 to 2025. The

Implemented by the Ethiopian government, the 450 USD flagship project LLRP is partially funded by IFAD, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the World Bank Group. Enhancing the livelihood resilience of Ethiopian pastoral and agropastoral communities is the project’s development goal. The LLRP is anticipated to benefit 2.5 million pastoral and agro-pastoral people throughout its six-year duration by making it possible for them to establish a sustainable commercial production system, which will improve their standard of living and capacity for resilience.

Through its team of technical staff members stationed in the government offices in Addis Ababa and six regional states—most of which are lowlands and pastoral and agro-pastoral (PAP) areas, such as the lowlands of Oromia and South Ethiopia Regions and the Somali, Afar, Gambella, and Benishangul-Gumuz Regions—Heifer International/Ethiopia has been providing Technical Assistance (TA) for the project. This is Heifer International’s first cooperation of its sort in the area.

The Living Income Benchmark (LIB), in Heifer’s opinion, is crucial for gauging our performance in our operating domains. By determining the LIB, we give ourselves a long-term objective that we must meet to provide our target groups with a respectable quality of life. We have implemented one LIB per Region for our four Regional States, which are our non-PAP intervention zones. Our prior LIB evaluations did not, however, address the PAP Regions, which include the lowlands and pastoral regions of Oromia and South Ethiopia Regions, as well as the Somali, Afar, Gambella, and Benishangul-Gumuz Regions. We now want to carry out the missing LIB in the PAP parts of the nation, not only because it was not included in our prior LIB research but also because their context is completely different, making the findings of our earlier LIB study useless for them. Given that the second phase of the LLRP (LRRP-II) is about to begin, this would be much more crucial.

In light of this, this Request for Proposal (RFP) aims to hire competent consultants to carry out a Living Income Benchmark (LIB) study for Heifer International Ethiopia in the lowlands and pastoral areas of Oromia and South Ethiopia Regions, as well as in the pastoralists and agro-pastoralist (PAP) regions of Somali, Afar, Gambella, and Benishangul-Gumuz.

The main goal of the assignment is to collect the necessary data so that Heifer International can calculate the minimal income required in pastoral communities across Ethiopia for people to be able to afford a reasonable level of life. To identify the income gaps that prevent different families from earning enough for a sustainable, decent standard of living, Heifer will first analyze current and actual income levels. From there, it will design appropriate interventions to help those families reach the identified Living Income Benchmark (LIB) and ensure a sustainable, decent quality of life.

Background data, the intended technique (including goals), a schedule, and a list of deliverables are all included in this paper. This paper also includes instructions on how to submit a proposal to carry out the data-gathering activity, as well as details on the sort of expertise that Heifer International is looking for for this project. Heifer plans to provide a certain sum of money for the study and to pay according to deliverables that are turned in and approved by Heifer. A payment schedule with specified deliverables will be included in the award agreement; all payments must be processed within 10 business days after the deliverables’ approval.

1.2.The Living Income Benchmarking Process of Heifer International

Living income is one metric that Heifer International uses to gauge progress. The Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning team of Heifer International modified the strategy, which was created by Anker and Anker (2017), to meet the project implementation environment of Heifer in distant, rural agricultural zones in developing nations. By expanding on the work of the Anker Living Wage methodology and the living income community of practice, Heifer created its own LIB approach. When planning Heifer projects, a Heifer LIB is the standard that guarantees the same dimensions across Heifer project regions.

The Local Income Board (LIB) serves as a regional benchmark for the minimum income required by individuals to maintain a respectable level of life within their community. The expenses of healthy food, acceptable housing, other necessities (such as healthcare and education), savings for unforeseen events or requirements (resilience), and, sometimes, helping those outside the home make up this total. To define “decency” and cost for each LIB component, primary and secondary data are combined.

 

2. Range of Work

2.1.obligations and liabilities

The chosen consultant will gather and examine pertinent Living Income Benchmark (LIB) data in the lowlands and pastoral regions of Oromia and South Ethiopia Regions, as well as in the PAP Regions of Somali, Afar, Gambella, and Benishangul-Gumuz. The consultant will next compute the Living Income Benchmark (LIB) for the designated target areas in compliance with Heifer International’s LIB criteria, working closely with Heifer International Ethiopia and the global Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) team of Heifer International.

In particular, the chosen consultant will gather and analyze primary and secondary data by Heifer’s standards for carrying out LIB. Secondary data review, qualitative Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) with stakeholders, Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with targeted communities/families, and brief market surveys to ascertain the current pricing of the LIB’s parts are the key methods used for collecting primary data. To gather primary data, the consultant will, with Heifer’s guidance and support, hire and train seasoned interviewers and note-takers; handle all logistical planning and coordination; carry out the data collection listed below by Heifer protocols and best practices; finish routine data quality assurance; compile and clean market data in a clearly labeled database; compile clear qualitative notes and provide translated qualitative data in English when necessary; and communicate with Heifer on a regular and timely basis regarding the progress and challenges of the work plan.

The selected consultant will perform primary and secondary data collection and analysis according to Heifer’s particular requirements for carrying out the Living Income Benchmark.

 

(LIB). Four main actions will comprise the data-collecting process; they are as follows:

1) A thorough examination of secondary data,

2) By conducting qualitative Key Informant Interviews (KIIs) with pertinent parties,

3) Holding Focus Group Talks (FGDs) with families and communities that are the subject of the discussion, and,

4) Quick market surveys in each Woreda to find out the current costs of the LIB’s parts.

 

The consultant will keep lines of communication open and promptly with Heifer, giving updates on the status of the work plan and resolving any obstacles that may arise.

 

2.2.Quantity of Key Informant and Focus Group Discussion Interviews

The consultant will get the finalized sites for data collection from Heifer International, which will also handle sample selection. Data collection from 16 woredas—three from each of the following regions: Somali, Afar, Gambella, and Benishangul-Gumuz—will be the consultant’s responsibility.

Furthermore, four woredas will be chosen from the pastoral regions and lowlands of the Oromia and South Ethiopia Regions.

The consultant will interview a total of 72 key informants (12 key informants per area); in addition, 60 Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) with 10 participants from each region will be conducted.

 

The number of focus group discussions (FGDs), the number of key informants to be interviewed, and the regions

  • Somali 3 12 10
  • Away 3 12 10
  • Benishangul 3 12 10
  • Gambella 3 12 10
  • Oromia 2 12 10

3. Techniques for Gathering Data

 

As previously mentioned, the selected consultant will conduct the previously described desk reviews, qualitative interviews with community people and families, and key informants to gather data. They will also carry out a quick market survey to find out how much particular administrative units would charge for the various parts that make up the Living Income Benchmark (LIB). All data-collecting tools will be developed by Heifer International; however, they will work with the data-collection company to guarantee contextual appropriateness and improve clarity. Among the specifics of the data-gathering techniques are:

 

2.3.1.desk assessment

 

Perform a thorough analysis of secondary data and information related to each selected area, giving the LLRP targeted sites priority. An estimate of the expected range of values for each component of living income—household size, nutritional needs, appropriate housing, basic needs like healthcare and education, savings for future shocks and needs (resilience), and, on occasion, assistance for people outside the household—should be the outcome of the review.

 

The following tasks will be completed by the consultant:

 

Assess the LIB’s applicability in terms of its geographic breadth and, if relevant, its sociodemographics.

 

Calculate the price of a healthy diet:

  • Examine secondary data from state, federal, and international sources to assess and determine if a family meets its adequate nutritional needs in the context of pastoralists and agro-pastoralist regions.

Calculate the price of a nice place to live:

  • Examine and evaluate secondary data from state, federal, and international sources to determine the cost of adequate housing and to comprehend household housing demands in lowland and pastoral regions, as well as agro-pastoral areas.

Calculate the price of additional fundamental non-food, non-housing (NFNH) costs:

  • In the context of pastoralists and agro-pastoralist regions, do literature research to ascertain the costs of education, healthcare, clothes, transportation, communication, cultural activities, and entertainment, as well as community contributions and fees.

Calculate the resilience cost:

In the context of pastoralists and agropastoralist areas, estimate the costs incurred due to unforeseen events like droughts, floods, or conflicts (which are regrettably common in these areas). Or calculate the savings required for a household to maintain a respectable standard of living during medium-sized shocks.

Calculate the cost of outside assistance:

  • Evaluate the material or financial support the household gives to people who are not members of its family and calculate the approximate cost of such aid, accounting for

 

take into consideration the sharing culture in the context of agro-pastoralist and pastoralist communities.

 

2.3.2.gathering of qualitative data

After preliminary cost estimates based on desk review and research activities, the consultant will gather primary data and verify the cost estimates based on desk review and research activity with the project population that is intended, as well as the assumptions used. Here are the tasks:

  • Arrange for a minimum of one mixed-group Focus Group Discussion (FGD) per location to find out what the community thinks about locally specific, affordable, and kind of decent housing (including furniture for the home), healthcare, education, and other Living Income Benchmark (LIB) components.
  • Hold at least three Key Informant Interviews (KII) at each site to get background data and perspectives that will enhance and delve further into the answers from Focus Group Discussions (FGDs).
  • Conduct a minimum of one market survey per Woreda site, gathering pricing information from three or more sellers in each studied market region.

 

2.4.Tools

Heifer created the oral informed consent protocols and the instrument for qualitative interviews (Key Informant Interviews and Focus Group Discussions). Heifer will approve the Market Survey form, which the consultant will create suitable note-taking forms for the FGDs and KIIs.

 

2.5.Particular Assignments and Accountabilities for the Consultant

 

In light of the projected difficulties associated with gathering data in distant locations, the consultant must, by their vast expertise in conducting surveys and gathering data, provide workable solutions to these problems. This entails resolving any logistical obstacles and guaranteeing access to isolated areas.

 

In particular, the consultants need to:

1) Methods Description: Clearly state the approaches used to overcome the difficulties involved in gathering data in distant locations, including problems with communication, transportation, and resource availability.

2) Qualified Team: Put together a skilled group of data collectors who speak the languages that are often spoken in the areas that are being targeted. These team members have to be equipped with the knowledge and abilities needed to interact with the community and collect reliable data.

3) Support for Logistics: Assign sufficient logistical resources to the deployment, training, supervision, and organization of enumerators and facilitators in the field. This includes making arrangements for lodging, meals, instruction, and any other requirements.

 

By exhibiting a thorough comprehension of the difficulties related to gathering data remotely and offering workable solutions, the Consultant will guarantee the effective implementation of

 

the project in even the most difficult settings.
