Vacancy: Consultant for forming a National Advisory Committee - Ghana
|Date||31 Mar 2020|
Terms of Reference (ToR), Consultant for forming a National Advisory Committee - Ghana
The 4R-Nutrient Stewardship Project (4R-NSP), is a five-year initiative funded by Global Affair Canada (GAC) with contribution from the Co-operative Development of Foundation of Canada (CDF Canada) and Fertilizer Canada (FC). The goal of the project is to improve socio-economic well-being and resilience of 80,000 (50 per cent women) smallholder farmers in Ethiopia, Ghana and Senegal through improved agricultural productivity and sustainability.
One key result area of the project is to increase integration of gender sensitive 4R principles in relevant standards and policies (globally and nationally). The 4R-NSP is a science-based use of fertilizer (Right Source @ Right Rate, Right Time, Right Place ®) that improve environmental sustainability, improves farmer productivity, and increase farmer-based income and profitability. Therefore, the intention of the national advisory committee is to support and advocate for the adoption of the 4R principles into national policy.
Through communication and advocacy initiatives Fertilizer Canada’s role is to lead policy advocacy of the integration of 4R principles into national policies and standards in Ethiopia, Ghana and Senegal. In light of this fact, Fertilizer Canada is seeking to form a National Advisory Committee (NAC) to support its advocacy initiative in Ethiopia and Ghana.
It is with this background that FC is seeking to hire a short-term (maximum of three working months between April 2020 – June 2020) local consultant to lead the formalization of the NAC.
