DFID (Research and Evidence Division) is seeking a Service Provider, or Consortium, to establish a new research programme on sustainable intensification of agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa. This programme aims to address one of the most intractable problems facing small-holder farmers in Africa — how to engage in the market economy and to deliver sustainable intensification of agriculture, that is, which avoids negative impacts on the environment. It will generate new evidence to help women and poor African smallholder farmers develop environmentally and financially sustainable enterprises and boost productivity. The research will focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, with a particular emphasis on Ethiopia, Tanzania, Ghana, Malawi, Mali and Zambia, complementing other research efforts in these regions, i.e. Africa Rising, Vital Signs and Humid Tropics. The Service Provider will be required to commission and manage competitive research grants, ensuring close links with stakeholders, decision makers and the complementary research programmes and the uptake and communications of the research outputs generated. They will ensure that research is made available and accessible to decision makers at local, national and regional levels. They will work to ensure that the knowledge and decision making tools generated by the programme are available to all investors who seek to help women and poor smallholder farmers to overcome barriers to participation in the market economy. As a minimum, the Service Provider will be expected to demonstrate extensive expertise in the management of research for development in relevant countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and particularly in relation to research in agriculture. They should have experience in managing competitive research calls and adding value to research programmes. They should be able to provide evidence of success in communicating research outputs to stakeholders (including to policy stakeholders). The Service Provider must have a clear governance and management structure in place for the programme which is viable, feasible and represents value for money. The Service Provider will manage a grant fund of 6 500 000 GBP. The contract is scheduled to commence in March 2015 and will run for a period of 5 years until February 2020. An extension of up to 18 months may be granted subject to resources and need.

1. DFID supports programmes aimed at building a more peaceful, viable and prosperous Afghanistan. Under the DFID Afghanistan Operational Plan (2011-2015), the Humanitarian, Environment and Livelihoods Team is working to promote economic stability, growth and jobs through its support to the Comprehensive Agriculture and Rural Development Facility (CARD-F). This intervention is also aligned with DFID's wider commitment to Afghanistan agreed in 2012 under the Tokyo Mutual Accountability Framework (TMAF). 2. CARD-F is an agricultural value chains development programme that aims to generate jobs and increase incomes. Under Phase 1 (30 000 000 GBP over 5 years from 2009 to 2014), it delivered five integrated Economic Development Packages (EDPs) at district level in the provinces of Balkh, Badakhshan, Nangarhar and Helmand. EDPs provide a mix of infrastructure, technical assistance, and grants to farmers and entrepreneurs to help develop agricultural production, value addition and access to markets. 3. CARD-F Phase 2 is designed to scale up the support for EDPs, increasing the number of provinces covered and developing additional value chains. It is also aimed at consolidating CARD-F's role both as a key component of the Government of Afghanistan's development of the Agricultural Sector, and as a lead programme in the sector for delivering economic development in rural areas. 4. DFID Afghanistan is seeking a Supplier or ‘Independent Technical Reviewer’ (ITR) to undertake technical mid-term and end term reviews of EDPs as well as selected field monitoring of the CARD-F programme to provide assurance that it can deliver results, use UK resources effectively and do no harm in a conflict affected environment.

DFID is seeking to select a lead supplier for a Research Programme on agricultural policy in Africa. The overall aim of the programme is to strengthen the evidence and analysis on what approaches and policies on agricultural commercialisation in Africa have the greatest impact on poverty reduction, women's empowerment and improving food security and nutrition. Given the profound changes taking place in African agriculture through increased private sector investment there is strong demand from decision-makers for better evidence on how best to promote inclusive economic growth. This research will be timely for DFID as it seeks to increase its support for commercial agriculture in Africa and will enable DFID country offices to be more effective in delivering inclusive economic growth through agriculture. This programme will undertake research on commercialisation in African agriculture to meet a strong demand from governments, DFID and other donors for better evidence on the impact on poor people of different pathways of agricultural commercialisation. This demand for better evidence is a result of a combination of factors including lack of access to available evidence, particularly among African policy makers, the need for ongoing policy analysis to use existing evidence to provide informed policy advice on the evolving policy context, and, in many countries, a lack of primary evidence on commercialisation. The programme will address these through the following: 1. Making relevant and available evidence readily accessible to decision-makers, particularly among African policy makers who have little access to existing evidence on commercialisation;2. In-depth policy analysis of existing or potential policies, utilising existing evidence to assess the potential impact, opportunities and constraints of different policy options; and 3. Undertaking new research to build the evidence base where there are clear gaps in primary evidence on commercialisation in particular country contexts.

Actual CPV code is ‘75211200 Foreign Economic-Aid Related Services’. Objective The motivation for undertaking an analysis of the agricultural – crops, horticulture, livestock, forestry – and fisheries sectors in Bangladesh is to better understand the economic and political barriers that act to reduce productivity below potential and slow inclusive growth. Given the importance of agriculture to poverty reduction and livelihoods of over half of the population in Bangladesh the study will assess what is needed for the sector to overcome to place it on a higher growth path. It will also fit in to a broader body of knowledge that is being developed to help inform policy makers and donors of agriculture’s role and actions that need to be taken to facilitate transformation within the sector or how best agriculture can facilitate transformation in other sectors in Bangladesh. This study will therefore complement forthcoming work that will be undertaken through the Economic Dialogue on Inclusive Growth in Bangladesh programme.
