Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) Expert, Final Performance Evaluation of the Knowledge-Based Integrated Sustainable Agriculture in Nepal (KISAN) II Activity, Nepal
Social Impact is a global development management consulting firm. We provide monitoring, evaluation, strategic planning, and capacity building services to advance development effectiveness. We work across all development sectors including democracy and governance, health and education, the environment, and economic growth. Since 1997 we have worked in over 100 countries for clients such as US government agencies, bilateral donors, multilateral development banks, foundations, and nonprofits.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) under its Feed the Future (FTF) initiative has contracted Winrock International to implement the Knowledge-Based Integrated Sustainable Agriculture in Nepal (KISAN II) Activity. KISAN II contributes to the Government of Nepal (GON)’s Agricultural Development Strategy (ADS). KISAN II is a five-year activity which will facilitate systemic changes in the agricultural sector including: (1) greater climate-smart intensification of staple crops and diversification into higher value commodities; (2) strengthening of local market systems to support more competitive and resilient value chains and agricultural related businesses; and (3) improving the enabling environment for agricultural and market systems development.
The purpose of this endline performance evaluation is to assess USAID/Nepal’s efforts to strengthen the performance of the selected agriculture market systems against performance indicators and targets. The evaluation will examine how the efforts to strengthen key market actor’s roles in the selected agriculture value chains have improved service delivery to farmers and also examine how the activity has contributed to an enabling policy environment for private sector engagement in agriculture. Similarly, the evaluation will also examine the viability of the interventions in terms of long term sustainability and scaling up successful business models. The findings from the evaluation will be used to generate recommendations for further improvement and adaptation during the remaining years. The evaluation is also expected to contribute to the mission’s ongoing and future FTF Activities by generating evidence of good practices and learning. Findings from the evaluation will also be shared more broadly with stakeholders in Nepal that may be able to learn from and apply the lessons learned.
Social Impact is seeking a Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) Expert with extensive knowledge of relevant GESI issues in Nepal. Under the guidance of the team lead, the GESI expert will work with the evaluation team to develop evaluation methodology to assess how the project has affected women and other vulnerable groups.
