NGO Jobs in Ethiopia 2024

Concerning GAIN
In an effort to alleviate the suffering that hunger causes in people, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), a foundation with its headquarters in Switzerland, was established at the UN in 2002. A decade of progress has been reversed as malnutrition and famine have become much worse since 2019 due to COVID19, the crisis in Ukraine, and climate change. The necessity for changes in Ethiopia’s food systems to buck these tendencies is becoming more apparent.
The goal of GAIN’s strategy is to change the food system so that everyone, particularly the most shock-prone, can obtain better meals from sustainable food systems. Our goals are to increase 25 million people’s access to better diets, increase 1.5 billion people’s access to nutritionally upgraded staple foods, and assist good changes to the food systems of ten nations by 2027. This is a challenging and intricate task, and the only way to do it is to collaborate with national and international partners that include corporations, governments, and civil society organisations. These objectives and the methods by which they will be attained expand upon our two decades of experience improving people’s lives via better nutrition via coordinated effort and successful legislative change.

GAIN has been re-registered and granted legal personality in Ethiopia by the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Agency for Civil Society Organisation. Its registration number is 2896.

Context

With the help of the Evidence and Action Towards Safe, Nutritious Food (EatSafe) initiative, low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) may significantly enhance the safety of nutritious foods in informal market settings by producing evidence and understanding about the potential for increasing consumer demand for safe food. Funded by USAID, the five-year effort is carried out by a partnership headed by GAIN that includes the Busara Centre for Behavioural Economics (Busara), Pierce Mill Education and Media, and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). The program’s interventions to raise consumer demand for food safety in Hawassa City’s Aroge Gebeya traditional market have been completed. Furthermore, GAIN is looking to assemble a team of one to three consultants or a consulting company to use market mapping technologies to evaluate five more traditional marketplaces in the Central South area, Shashemene city, and Sidama region.

Goal

This assessment’s main goal is to conduct a thorough analysis of five distinct open marketplaces.

Particular goals are to:

• Verify the efficacy of the current market assessment instrument and carry out the evaluation, which involves conducting informal interviews with market participants while using data gathering tools and observations.

• Create a SWOT analysis based on the results of the market evaluation and provide recommendations in line with it.

Structure of assessments

1. A general overview of the market’s location

2. The enabling environment, which includes social networks, governance, and infrastructure

3. Methods and technologies

4. KAPs for market participants

5. A landscape analysis to determine the prospects for behaviour change.

Work’s scope

The following duties must be completed by the consultant:

§ Record the market infrastructure—roads, buildings, entrances, public bathrooms, water supplies, etc.—that is needed to guarantee food safety at five pre-selected markets, and assess the condition and usefulness of such infrastructures and facilities.

Analyse and record vendors’ and customers’ access to these resources.

Analyse and record, in accordance with technical standards, the maintenance procedures used by the market management team for these facilities.

§ Specify the minimal level of facilities needed for the efficient administration of this market or markets in order to ensure food safety and the market, including the successful preservation of perishable and seasonal goods and vegetables.

Communicate with market participants to ascertain the infrastructure requirements that should be prioritised in the interest of food safety, the market, and the efficient storage of perishable vegetables.

§ Give GAIN well-informed advice on how to preserve or enhance market/food safety in these markets generally, based on your evaluation and discussions with the market and local government authorities.

§ To enhance food safety, a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) study of their internal and external strengths and weaknesses is conducted.
