Terms of reference – Baseline Evaluation Study East Africa Living Income Program

Living Income is a key theme in the IDH Global Coffee Program strategy for 2021-2025. IDH has been working on living income since 2019 in Colombia when it published the Task Force for Coffee Living Income report. In East Africa, IDH is collaborating with multi-stakeholders to integrate aspects of living and prosperous income into the coffee supply chain in Uganda and Kenya. This effort is guided by IDH’s Roadmap on Living Income, a framework which helps supply chain actors to take ambitious and aligned actions to close living income gaps for farming households.

IDH is implementing the East Africa Living Income Coffee Program (2022-2025) in Kenya and Uganda. For the Program, IDH is looking for a consultant to conduct a program baseline study in Uganda based on the universally accepted OECD-DAC criteria. The study will primarily focus on the living income targets of the Program. On the basis of these Terms of Reference, IDH aims to select a party, who should combine qualitative and quantitative methods and should include data collection and analysis of actual levels of smallholder farmer income, as well as the impact of the convening work of IDH and its partners.

The proposal must be submitted to Arthur Ng’ang’a at nganga@idhtrade.org until 7th June 2023 at 18:00 East Africa time.
