Terms of Reference – Feasibility of Results Based Funding – Women’s Safety Accelerator Fund

The Women’s Safety Accelerator Fund (WSAF) is a bold new program to address gender-based violence (GBV) and promote women’s safety in the Indian tea sector. Starting with tea producers in Assam, the fund will implement the Global Women’s Safety Framework for Rural Spaces (GWSF) by UN Women and Unilever across geographies and commodity supply chains. Starting in 2020 the WSAF aims to reach out to at least 200,000 women workers across 300 estates in Assam by 2023.

Through this Terms of Reference, the Fund wants to assess the feasibility of using a results-based financing (RBF) program design to:

• Incentivize key stakeholders to achieve the intended impacts as per the Fund’s Theory of Change;
• Identify the key design features – motivations, structures, metrics, readiness, suitability; and
• Arrive at a timeline for transitioning and implementing RBF structures integrated into our implementation cycles and partners.

The proposal must be submitted to Jatin Bavishi at bavishi@idhtrade.org by 23:59 IST on 6th October 2021.
