Location: Taraba

Introduction

  • Oxfam is an international confederation of 19 organizations working in over 95 countries worldwide to find lasting solutions to poverty and injustice around the world. Each organization (affiliate) works together internationally to achieve a greater impact through collective efforts. Oxfam’s stated goal is to ensure vulnerable people’s needs are met (saving lives and ensuring sustainable livelihoods), transform attitudes about women’s rights and supporting more active citizenship and a more accountable state and private sector.
  • By adopting a rights-based approach and in solidarity with communities, Oxfam works with partners, public and private sector institutions to achieve a fairer economy with increases in incomes for the poorest and more effective support to those affected by crisis; and to change public attitudes so the rights of women are respected, to achieve a more accountable state and private sector institutions; and a stronger civil society in which women and men know and can claim their rights.
  • Oxfam, in partnership with Development Exchange Centre (DEC), is implementing a 54- month Project funded by the European Union and Oxfam in Taraba State of northern Nigeria. The Project is titled “European Union Support to Food Security and Resilience in Taraba State (PROSELL)” and is being implemented across more than 80 rural communities in 6 Local Government Areas of Taraba State.
  • PROSELL has been strengthening the capacities of about 40,000 rural households who rely on agriculture and natural resource-based livelihoods through best practice knowledge transfer, household/productive assets accumulation, financial inclusion services, linkages to market systems, climate change adaptation, and social safety programs among others. There has been some reported evidence of increase in productivity and improved wellbeing among project participants in the 80 rural communities. PROSELL interventions have contributed to an improved food security situation across the communities, as more foods are produced for household consumption and for enhanced household income generation.
  • Now in its fourth year of implementation, PROSELL has demonstrated that resilience programming targeted at rural populations should be multi-dimensional and comprehensive enough to stimulate far reaching change process for vulnerable households.
  • The project’s main objective is to build resilience of small-scale farmers, fishermen and livestock owners in various commodity value chains and rural enterprises. Its specific objectives are:
    • To increase income of small-scale farmers by enhancing their agricultural productivity, market access, and job creation along crop, fish and livestock value chains.
    • To enhance adaptive capacities and resilience of small-scale farming households to climate change.
    • To promote cooperation and mutual benefits of farmers, livestock owners, and all value chain actors.

Rationale:

  • Food security has been a major development objective of national and international governments for a long time. The term describes a situation of having continuous and unhindered access to adequate and nutritious food supplies that are always sufficient to meeting the mental and physiological needs of the people. At the national level, food security will consider self-sufficiency in food production within a country’s national borders, a net positive food trade balance sheet when participating in international food trade, and a robust economy that supports adequate purchasing power per capita.
  • At the household level, food security entails that every member of the household have physical, economic, and social access to food commodities delivering a minimum requirement of 2100 kilocalories of energy per person per day at a sustainable rate. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (NBS, 2016) practically captures the priority indices for global development and equitable distribution of resources for sustainable world economy. SDG 2 aims to End Hunger, Achieve Food Security and Improved Nutrition, and Promote Sustainable Agriculture 2030. Some of the key targets set by SDG2 are to end hunger and ensure access by all people, to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food all year round by 2030; and to end all forms of malnutrition, by 2030.
  • The 2020 Global Report on Food Crises revealed that 135 million people in 56 countries are in food crises or worse (Phases 3 to 5 of IPC[1]/CH classifications), 73 million of this people are in Africa where prolonged armed conflicts, climate change and economic instability have weakened food/nutrition support systems. The report also listed northern Nigeria among the 10 worst food crisis regions across the 56 surveyed countries. According to the report, northern Nigeria has over 5 million people in food crisis representing 5% of the analyzed 103.5 million population. In addition, 18.8 million people, representing 18% of the study population in northern Nigeria, are food stressed and they are at the immediate risk of sliding into food crisis.
  • The situation described above predated the COVID-19 pandemic which has now further aggravated food and nutrition insecurity in the region.
  • According to the Nigerian Living Standards Survey (NLSS) conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics in December 2019, 4 out of every 10 Nigerians are extremely poor with urban and rural poverty rates at 18% and 52% respectively. This implies nearly half of the population is vulnerable to food insecurity and malnutrition. In 2019, the State of Food Insecurity in the World (SOFI) report estimated 13.9 million children (43.6%) under five are stunted, and 13.4% of Nigerians are undernourished. Although the SOFI reported low global acute malnutrition (GAM) rate in Nigeria (7.0%), the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) Acute malnutrition analysis conducted for September 2019 – April 2020 shows certain domains in States affected by armed conflicts (Borno, Adamawa and Yobe states) have Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM) rates of over 10%. The nutrition situation in the country will be further worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the restrictive measures and overburdened health systems leading to de-prioritization of other health challenges including malnutrition, malaria and tuberculosis.
  • March 2022 Cadre Harmonisé (CH) food security analysis highlights high levels of food insecurity and malnutrition.
  • The current situation would have +150% of crisis affected people as compared to the same time last year. At least 7 million people were to be in food crises situation or worse from June 2020 (+42% from this past lean season), including more than 3.7 million in North-East only (SAM burden: 289,197 children and 591,884 in need of nutrition assistance), and for the first time since a decade some crisis-like situation in parts of the North-West.Because of the COVID-19 disruptions to food supply chains, experts suggest that these figures will increase further. COVID-19 is an additional stressor that intersects with conflicts, insecurity, climate change patterns and chronic vulnerabilities, including limiting populations’ access to basic social services that is more likely to exacerbate existing needs and potentially create new crises.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic is already affecting food systems directly through impacts on food supply and demand, and indirectly – but just as importantly – through decreases in purchasing power, the capacity to produce and distribute food, and the intensification of care tasks, all of which will have differentiated impacts and will more strongly affect the poor and vulnerable.
  • Now in its fourth year, PROSELL has worked with and supported rural households categorized as Very Poor, Poor, Middle, and Better-Off at baseline. The aim of the project is to help in transiting as many households found in the Very Poor and Poor wealth groups to Middle and Better-Off wealth groups over the period of its implementation. It is also intended to strengthen livelihoods resilience of these rural households to shocks and stresses such as COVID-19 and other related emergencies.
  • For the purpose of result monitoring, learning, accountability, and knowledge management, it has become imperative to carry out an assessment of food security situations of those vulnerable households that have been supported by the project over the past four and half years.
  • It is also important to examine their resilience capacities from absorptive, adaptive, and transformative perspectives while also investigating the relevance, sustainability and ownership of various resilience-strengthening systems established across project locations.

Objective of the Study

  • The overarching objective of this study is to assess food security situations among project participants in rural areas of Taraba State where implementation has been ongoing.
  • The assessment will also consider how well the resilience of vulnerable households in those project locations has been strengthened.

The assignment will help in doing the following:

  • Analyse the socio-economic characteristics of the sampled participants
  • Carry out food security assessment among rural households in PROSELL communities of Taraba State;
  • Determine the extent to which rural resilience has been deepened among project participants and their communities;
  • Check improvement or otherwise of dietary intake of the households.
  • Assess some underlying risks and gaps of community members in the face of food insecurity.
  • Determine factors responsible for improvement, or otherwise, in food security situations of rural households and their coping strategies;
  • Make appropriate recommendations for different stakeholder categories outlined below towards ensuring sustainability of project results.

Audience and Use of Findings:

  • The research findings will be used for quality improvement, evidence-based programming, and advocacy targeted at government, community leaders, traditional institutions, community based organizations (CBOs), development agencies, and the donor communities. The research findings will also contribute to existing knowledge on food and nutrition security, rural resilience, and adaptive social protection.
  • Outcome of this assessment will help Oxfam and its partners to enrich their livelihoods programming works to deepen resilience among vulnerable populations across contexts. It will also embolden us in facts-based arguments to convince stakeholders on the need for developing comprehensive package of intervention that can enhance peoples’ capacities to assume their rights in the face of shocks and stresses.

Title: Consultant – Service for a Research on Building Resilience Through the VSLA In Prosell Communities of Taraba State

Location: Taraba
Timeframe: The consultancy is expected to be completed with 25 days from the date of award. The contract is expected to start July 4th and end July 31st, 2022.

Background

  • The European Union Support to Food Security and Resilience in Taraba State (DCI/ FOOD/2018/395-810) is a 10 million euros, 54-month EU-funded project to improve food security and livelihoods resilience of smallholder farming households in Taraba State.
  • The project is being implemented by Oxfam and Development Exchange Centre (DEC) in 80 rural communities across six (6) Local Government Areas of the State targeting 40,000 vulnerable rural households.
  • The project’s main objective is to build resilience of small-scale farmers, fishermen and livestock owners in various commodity value chains and rural enterprises. It is intended to empower women and youth by enhancing their abilities to access required services, produce optimally, and earn more income from market activities. The Local Government Areas of implementation are Ardo-Kola, Donga, Kurmi, Takum, Wukari and Zing.
  • In the past thirty forty five months, PROSELL has been building the resilience of the targeted 40,000 farming households in their agricultural productivity, expanded rural financial inclusion, enhanced market access, and job creation along crops, fish and livestock value chains. Interventions are being delivered to enhance adaptive capacities of small-scale farmers to climate change and promote cooperation and mutual benefits of farmers, livestock owners, and all value chain actors in the selected six (6) Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Taraba State. The project has equally provided immediate succour for the extremely vulnerable rural households through humanitarian assistance aimed at stabilizing them to pursue sustainable livelihoods activities.
  • In addition to supporting rural households, PROSELL has been empowering the government at the State, LGA, and community levels for an enhanced capacity to develop and implement people-oriented policies and programmes. Inefficiencies in local market systems and systemic challenges promoting conflicts among the people are being addressed as well to deepen resilience and facilitate long term development.
  • Climate-resilient agricultural and non-agricultural livelihoods are being promoted in an inclusive manner that recognizes peculiar needs of women and young people while market actors are engaged to collaborate better in order to make markets work for the poor.

Objective(s)
The followings are the specific objectives of the project:

  • To increase income of small-scale farmers by enhancing their agricultural productivity, market access, and job creation along crop, fish and livestock value chains.
  • To enhance adaptive capacities and resilience of small-scale farming households to climate change.
  • To promote cooperation and mutual benefits of farmers, livestock owners, and all value chain actors.

Rationale:

  • The PROSELL project have facilitated the formation of over 1600 VSLA groups for financial inclusion, social cohesion, enhanced leadership capabilities to empower women among others. Furthermore, the members were trained on a number of needs based IGAs and GAPs; and supported with agricultural inputs and other assets.
  • Although a number researches were conducted on VSL which include rolling baseline, post distribution monitoring, citizens perception among others, none of these studies deliberately set out to measure how VSLA which is one of most important components of the PROSELL project can improve resilience of households using any resilience frameworks.
  • Measuring the resilience of women in VSLA using any standard resilience index will add value to some of the learnings from our adoption of VSL methodology and provide a good evidence for policy advocacy.
  • The findings will be useful to government and Oxfam to decide if the VSL methodology should be replicated in other areas. This research, therefore, seek to answer the following questions:
    • What is the impact of investing in economic strengthening interventions at the household level.
    • How do VSLAs help households to improve their resilience to shock (covid-19 and other disasters and conflicts).
    • Do VSLA improve the resilience of men and women differently?
    • What are the factors that could affect the sustainability of VSLA?

Objective of the Consultancy:
The main objective of this consultancy is to measure how VSLA improve resilience of women in the PROSELL communities in Taraba State. The specific objectives are:

  • Measure economic resilience levels of households of VSL members;
  • Assess the linkage between VSL and resilience in the midst of shocks brought about by Covid-19 pandemic and other shocks
  • Determine how VSL improve the resilience of women compared to men
  • Investigate the factors that could determine the sustainability of the VSL program in the state.

Framework and Methodology

  • Oxfam defines resilience as ‘the ability of women and men to realize their rights and improve their wellbeing despite shocks, stresses and uncertainty’ (Jeans et al., 2016)
  • Following the works of Martin, Breen and Anderies, 2011, Béné et al., 2012, and others, Oxfam has adopted a framework to conceptualize resilience in terms of three capacities –
  • The capacities to absorb, adapt and transform (see Jeans et al., 2016). In order to assess the extent of how PROSELL contributed to the building of these capacities, the consultant is expected to adopt/adapt standard indicators of resilience which have been used in relevant literatures.
  • The consultant is expected to use household data supplemented with secondary data obtainable from Oxfam reports. It is expected that selection of respondents should be done using purposive, stratified and random sampling techniques. Furthermore, the consultant/consulting firm is expected to adopt a mixed methodologies / approach for data collection and analyses.

Deliverables:
The outcome of this consultancy should include quantitative and qualitative analysis and synthesis of data collected. The expected deliverables will include:

  • Inception report containing a desk research report, sampling plan and sample size, methods of data collection and analyses, field work plan, and sample of survey questionnaire, focus group discussion and key informant interview guides.
  • One final research report

What is a cover letter?

A cover letter is a one-page document that you submit with your resume to express your interest in a job opening. The purpose of a cover letter is to introduce yourself to an employer and provide a brief overview of your work history, professional skills, and an explanation why you’re the best fit for that job.

While your resume focuses on your qualifications and achievements, your cover letter expands on those achievements, showcases your personality, and explains why you’d be a good fit for the company.

How to write a cover letter that gets you the job

Here’s how to make a great cover letter for a job application:

Underneath your name in your cover letter header, list the following contact details:

  • First and last name
  • Email address (something professional, usually including your name)
  • Phone number
  • Mailing address (optional)
  • Linkedin profile link (optional)
  • Portfolio or website (optional)

After your header, include the date and following company contact information:

  • First and last name of the person you’re writing to, or the relevant department
  • Company address
  • Company phone number
  • Hiring manager’s email address

 

2. Address the hiring manager (ideally by their name)

Next, address your cover letter to the hiring manager by name if possible. A standard cover letter salutation includes the hiring manager’s first and last name, and begins with a “Mr.”, “Ms.”, or another relevant professional title.

3. Write an attention-getting opening paragraph

Start your cover letter with an informative, direct introduction by including the following details in the first one or two sentences:

  1. Job position: The title of the advertised position
  2. Company name: The name of the company you’re applying to
  3. How you discovered the opening: Whether you saw the job on LinkedIn, a job board, or were recommended to apply by a friend
  4. Intention to apply: An enthusiastic announcement that you’re applying for the open role and why you’re interested in or qualified for it
  5. Notable accomplishments: If you have relevant work experience, highlight one or two of your most notable achievements in your introduction to immediately grab the employer’s attention
