The coffee sub-sector is Timor-Leste’s
largest non-oil export and is grown by 38% of all households. However, around
half of the planted area consists of old trees that require replanting and
rehabilitation and most smallholders do not consistently apply good practices
for production and pest management. As a result, average yields are among the
lowest in the world (150-200 kg per ha).
Improving productivity and price realization can have a
significant impact on coffee dependent poor household incomes. However, many
smallholder producers are constrained by gaps in knowledge and understanding of
good agricultural practices, limited financial inclusion, difficulties in
accessing high quality inputs and technical advice, poor transport links and
market infrastructure, and continued dependence on middlemen.
The Minister of Agriculture’s capacity to help drive improvements
across the sector is limited by a number of constraints.
To support the development of the coffee sector as a pro-poor
driver for development and put the government front and centre of improvements the
Asian Development Bank helped to launch the Timor-Leste National Coffee Sector
Development Plan (2019–2030) in collaboration with the government.
The plan calls for a significant
increase in productivity and improvement in quality. Long-term goals to be
achieved over the life of the plan include:
constraints there are opportunities which include:
The Coffee and Agroforestry Livelihood Improvement Project will
support the government to implement the plan to address the constraints and
unlock the opportunities.
The project will strengthen value chains, better market linkages
and improved gender actions, improved quality throughout the coffee chain, and
better market information, to improve the sector long-run potential.
The innovative project is designed to improve the lives of coffee

The key interventions falling under this EU support, and those to be evaluated by this assignment, are:
14/07/21 - 30/09/22
The evaluation scope will include an assessment of how relevant and effective WFP was in responding to the COVID-19 crisis in South Sudan. In doing so, it will also consider how BRs and adaptations of WFP interventions in response to the crisis have affected other interventions planned under the ICSP.

The overall objective of the
project is to contribute to the improvement of the resilience of the Nigerien
population to climate change and its related risks. The specific objective of
the intervention is to strengthen the capacity of national actors at various
levels to manage rural development in a more integrated, sustainable and
resilient manner in the face of climate change and its related risks.
results are expected at the end of the project:

The purpose of this Country Strategic Plan Evaluation
(CSPE) was to assess progress and results against the Chad CSP’s intended
strategic outcomes (accountability) but also to identify lessons and
recommendations for the design of future WFP support at country level
(learning). As such it had two principal objectives:
This evaluation exercise examined the strategic relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and sustainability of WFP interventions under the CSP, as well as their interdependence and coverage. It responded to four overarching evaluation questions developed in the evaluation matrix and four cross-cutting dimensions: gender equality and women's empowerment, protection, accountability to affected populations (AAP), and climate change.
The evaluation team used mixed methods to answer the evaluation questions and tested the a reconstructed Theory of Change using contribution analysis . Information was collected, triangulated, and analysed using different qualitative methods such as documentary review, semi-structured key informant interviews, focus group discussions, and participant observation during field visits. Quantitative methods drew on primary and secondary data.
In-person and remote data collection took place from June to November, with a four-week field visit in October, organised to capture the widest possible range of WFP activities. The team held meetings in the capital N'Djamena with government institutions, UN actors, national and international NGOs, and civil society and private sector organizations. Consultations were also held with field office staff, operating partners and beneficiaries in the following regions and sub-offices:

In line with global
and African aquaculture, the sector is growing in importance in East Africa,
with promising long-term potential for contributing to food security and
economic opportunities for value chain actors. The overall objective of the
project (EU-EAC TRUE-FISH) of which this contract is a part, is to contribute
to the development of competitive, gender equitable and sustainable commercial
aquaculture in the Lake Victoria basin.
The purpose of this
contract is to improve access to commercial networks for aquaculture-related
businesses. This contract aims to stimulate a more competitive regional
aquaculture industry in East Africa - focusing particularly on Kenya,
Tanzania and Uganda - through supporting the development of stronger
business links between regional and with international commercial aquaculture
related businesses and strengthening trade and investment support services,
thereby fostering improved productivity and use of technology, improved
technical and commercial practices as well as facilitating investment and
The following results are to be achieved:

The elimination of animal diseases as well as the general improvement of animal health in the northern part of Cyprus remain a priority for the Turkish Cypriot administrative bodies. Brucellosis causes a necrotic and
inflammatory infection in humans and animals, and is among the world’s most
common zoonotic diseases. Brucellosis (in both animals and humans) is a
notifiable disease in the Turkish Cypriot community, as animal
husbandry is particularly common in that area. In cattle, tuberculosis is
caused by persistent infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium Bovis. Enzootic
bovine leukosis is a disease of cattle caused by the bovine leukaemia virus.
The control and eradication of Bovine Brucellosis, Ovine and Caprine
Brucellosis, Bovine Tuberculosis and Enzootic Bovine Leucosis is an internationally
applied condition for public health as well as a crucial requirement for the
trade of products of animal origin. It is in that context that the EU (DG REFORM) is
requesting further Technical input and analysis in the area of animal health in
the northern part of Cyprus (Turkish).
The overall objective of this project is thus to promote the rural and economic
development of the Turkish Cypriot community. Specifically, this assignment
