IDH is starting a three-and-a-half-year market-led grains value chain development program in Ghana, to contribute to the development of the grains sector, support the inclusion of SMEs and smallholder farmers, and create jobs, with a central focus on women and youth empowerment. The program will be implemented until March 2025.
Through a market-led approach, IDH will work closely with 12 SMEs in maize, rice, and millet supply chains in Northern Ghana to improve business operations, build technical and management capacity, structure sourcing of high-quality grains from smallholder farmers, and to support these SMEs in meeting the buying requirements of large multinational off-takers.
IDH will provide technical assistance and strategic support to these SMEs through project contracts, to support these businesses in realizing business opportunities in grains supply chains, leading to impact through job creation (focus on women and youth empowerment) and the inclusion of smallholder farmers. Establishing a digital platform approach to provide advisory support to farmers and facilitate market linkages will be a central program component.
To support this program in Ghana, IDH aims to select a party to conduct a baseline evaluation. Please see more details on this assignment in the TORs document below.
Please note that the deadline for the submission of proposals is the 13th of October, 2021. If you have any questions on these TORs, please reach out to David Black (email@example.com).
