This project will focus on improvement of the VET system of the country through combining different types of interventions, including a) pilot projects in the field, b) twinning arrangements between local and Swiss institutions and c) policy dialogue in cooperation with other major donors involved in the field. Learnings and best practices from the pilot projects in the field will be used in policy dialogue in cooperation with other major donors involved in VET on agriculture. Twinning arrangements between local and Swiss institutions will make sure that these changes are sustainable. The beneficiaries of the project will be young and adult men and women who seek improvement of their skills in farming and related services through vocational education and training. Since the project will be implemented in the areas heavily populated by IDPs, they will be among the beneficiaries, especially because this group of people strongly need vocational training on different areas due to the fact that IDPs are not granted land plots like the local population in rural Azerbaijan. Different government institutions will also benefit from the project, as they will get some support to develop their institutional and technical capacities as part of the project. The project implementing partner will have full responsibility for overall project implementation.

1. Reinforcing farmer's voice: NASDP will strengthen the Research — Extension — Education triangle and reinforce the position of farmers as actors in the innovation system and not mere subjects of the relations between research, extension and education. This is central to outcome 1 and will include a beneficiary assessment and the inclusion of measures to address the needs of different categories of farmers, especially of women and the disadvantaged. As mentioned above, NASDP will cooperate closely with SBLL and other development projects to reach this objective. 2. Strengthening and establishing AFECs: NASDP will continue to support the development of AFEC in each VDC as the entry point for agriculture development activities. This measure is a continuation of SDC strategy, is in line with MoAD policies, and is seen as a precursor of the Community Agricultural Extension Service Centers (CAESC) planned in the ADS. 3. Improving the quality and relevance of research and extension services: NASDP will strengthen the capacity of existing public and private research and extension service providers to address the need identified in the AFECs. This will include up-scaling and mainstreaming mechanisms to promote best practices and appropriate incentive systems: — Integration of the agricultural education system in the innovation system; — Facilitate and fund collaborative activities between the various innovation actors to enhance coordination and increase the relevance of research outputs; — Continued attention to gender and social inclusion considerations. 4. Increase the critical mass of scientists and improve the research process in Nepal to respond to the productivity and production challenges of tomorrow including the feminisation of agriculture due to migration and climate change. NASDP will allocate a specific budget to support the research process to ensure the participation of agriculture science in agriculture innovation in the country. 5. Use the opportunities offered by remittances and returnee migrants: NASDP will support the agriculture innovation process at district level and will use innovative approaches to gather and publicize the best agri-business options for investment and offer innovation brokerage services to returnee migrants who might be interested in using their new skills and capital for agri-business investment. This intervention targeting remittances and returnee migrants will broaden the impact of the SDC funded Safer Migration and SKILL projects. 6. Continued attention will be given to gender, social, economic and geographic exclusion and due consideration to migration: the current massive youth outmigration has multiple and complex links with agricultural development. The high differentiation of Nepal society has led in the past to polarization and social conflict. NASDP will identify mechanisms that value diversity and fund joint innovation research and extension programs. Specifically, NASDP programs will recognize women as independent and autonomous farmers, and will work to ensure women's access to means of production and enhance their leadership competence and improving women's position in the different bodies supported by NASDP.

Support to economic development initiatives that aim at improving Palestinian women and men access to the labour markets and create sustainable income opportunities is one of SDC main priorities in the occupied Palestinian territory (SDC Cooperation Strategy 2010-2014 for the oPt). Specific focus is laid on the support to agricultural value chains with high potential in terms of increased income and employment opportunties for women and men. In the Gaza Strip, the agricultural sector has long been a key driver of economic growth due to the production of high value and export-oriented crops as well as the production of vegetables, fruits and livestock, sold in the local Gaza market or the West Bank and Isreali markets. Today, the sector is performing far under its potential. Despite the many challenges, urban agriculture is however a promising pro-poor sub-sector with growth potential that could enhance food security and generate increased income for small-holder women and men producers living in the Gaza Strip. The overall objective of the tendered project is to increase the income of women and men smallholder producers through more effective and inclusive urban agriculture market systems. Expected outcomes are: — Capacities and practices of stakeholders in urban agriculture are improved and lead to increased employment and income opportunities of small scall producers (women and men), — Market functions in urban agriculture systems are improved and lead to increased access to market by small scale producers (women and men). The duration of the overall intervention is 6 years, with two implementation phases. The first phase includes an inception phase of maximum nine months to conduct in-depth market system assessments/diagnosis, including a stakeholders assessment and gender analysis, and identify partners and specific areas of intervention. The project is expected to be implemented with a market, developmental and systemic approach, with the implementing organization. — or a consortium of organizations, — mainly playing a facilitator/catalyst role. The project should include a strong capacity building component of the local partners and support innovative initiatives of small scale farmers in the field of urban agriculture. Main tasks and responsibilities of the mandatory include: — overall project management including monitoring and reporting on results, — management of fiduciary funds, — provision of technical assistance in the selected sub-sectors, — facilitation of market system development, — capacity building of partner organizations/service providers The required profile of the mandatory includes proven experience and expertise in results oriented project management, pro-poor market system development in fragile contexts, agriculture value chain development, gender mainstreaming, capacity building of local partners, and a very good understanding for the socio-political and economic context of the Gaza Strip.

Green Initiative for Afghanistan's Agriculture (GIAA): At the core of the initiative are GIAA's efforts to institutionalize Natural Resource Management (NRM) capacity-building.

The subject of this tender is the implementation of phase 1 of GIAA. Intervention Strategy. At the core of the initiative are GIAA's efforts to institutionalize NRM capacity-building services, for example in curricula for higher education and capacity development of government and private of professionals. This will be pursued through the close collaboration with stakeholders, both public and private, engaged in the area of NRM. Cross-cutting issues such as Gender and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) will be mainstreamed in the overall project design and in the curricula. A context-sensitive approach has to be adapted for project implementation. In particular, the first phase of GIAA will examine and initiate the process towards the national institutional anchorage of capacity-building and policy dialogue in sustainable land and water management. The idea behind is to create a learning and exchange hub for Afghan professionals from different backgrounds. The external review of SLMP and stake-holder consultations confirm the relevance of such an initiative on the national level. Preliminary consultations with stakeholders have shown a high level of support for the idea. Nevertheless, its intended multi-functionality and its interdisciplinary character pose a particular challenge to identify the optimal institutional anchorage. Examining potential entry points and identifying the optimal anchorage will therefore be a main focus of GIAA's first 2-3 years. Special care will be taken to avoid the creation of an additional or parallel structure and to include relevant government entities to the extent possible. Potential entry points still to be explored include, but are not limited to, government ministries (e.g. MAIL or MRRD), universities (public or private) and the National Environment Protection Agency (NEPA). A close examination of the existing institutional landscape, its capacities and willingness is required. Independent of its anchorage, how-ever, GIAA is understood as a hub for NRM in Afghanistan and will involve a range of stakeholders. To strengthen national ownership, it is foreseen to establish a steering committee with representatives of line ministries, academia and civil society. Working with the government on a technical level, building its capacity and gradually in-creasing its involvement in the project will be an important aspect of GIAA. Currently, the government's institutional capacities are weak and corruption levels are high, and implementing the project through the government is therefore judged to be too risky. GIAA's functions will initially be assumed by an implementing partner. Both lines of intervention — capacity-building activities and policy dialogue/advocacy — will then gradually be handed over to a nationally anchored body, starting in the second phase of the project. The implementing partner will then be responsible for institutional capacity-building and thematic backstopping, to ensure the quality of the trainings provided and funds may be partially channelled through national institutions. The aim of the third phase of the project will be consolidation and institutional sustainability. While the implementation set-up will evolve, GIAA is based around 2 main lines of intervention, which will remain at the core of the project throughout its duration: — 1 line of intervention of GIAA will be the training and coaching of natural resource management professionals. Amongst others, this will include curricula development, internships, short and long term training packages, the development of an advanced studies program in Afghanistan and scholarship offers for Master programs at universities abroad. As there is presently a significant deficit of qualified women professionals in the field of agriculture in general and natural resource management in particular, GIAA will offer special training courses for women field practitioners. GIAA will not directly work with farmers and will not provide extension services. — The other line of intervention is the facilitation of evidence-based policy dialogue. To improve capacities and foster awareness of the importance of sustainable natural re-source management, GIAA will feed evidence from the field into the policy dialogue. To this end, it will provide evidence on policy implementation, participate in fora for policy dialogue and document field experiences. GIAA will arrange exposure visits for government officials, teaching staff from universities and other professionals to introduce them to sustainable land and water management practices. GIAA will also facilitate exchange among the community of practice of natural resource management practitioners, including government staff, and will organize national conferences on topics related to natural resource management.

The Lao Upland Agriculture Advisory Service project will build a demand-driven pluralistic extension service delivery system, which involves public and private service providers, including self-determined and independent farmers organizations.

Many agricultural development projects in Lao PDR have demonstrated that linking farmers to market actors in order to contribute to farmers' empowerment and profit can neither rely only on the public service, nor exclusively on private sector: a multi-stakeholder approach is required. This has been recognized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MAF), which has elaborated in 2011 a new strategy for extension, which is a “Breakthrough in Support for Small-Holder Farmers'” and is currently being adapted to the mandate of the recently created Department of Extension and Agricultural Extension and Cooperatives (DAEC) in MAF. This strategy foresees a greater role for farmers' organizations and the private sector in the provision of services. The project is expected to contribute to poverty reduction, equitable development and food security in uplands through establishing an effective demand-driven pluralistic extension service delivery system, including self-determined and independent farmer organizations, to support gender inclusive, agriculture value chains. Expected project outcomes are: 1) Upland small farmers have better agricultural productivity and income through advisory services which meet their requirements and choices; 2) Self-determined and independent farmers' organizations are providing demand-oriented services to and facilitate transparent and fair market engagement of their members; 3) Demand-driven and gender inclusive advisory services are delivered by state and non-state actors, offering accountable services and promoting good agricultural practices; 4) The policy framework is more conducive for integration of smallholder farmers into value chains, which contributes to an open and pro-poor rural economy. To achieve these outcomes, it is proposed that the project will apply different modalities (including the use of competitive small funds) and will consist of several components whose implementation can associate either the MAF and its provincial and district offices or specialized civil society organizations. The global management responsibility will be given to a mandate holder with the required experience and knowledge capable to lead the implementation in partnership with the DAEC of MAF. The project duration will be 10 years with a total budget of 18 million CHF.
