Jobs at Cafédirect Producers Foundation in Uganda - Evaluator

Job Title: Evaluator, Fort Portal, Uganda and Nandi Hills, Kenya
Closing Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2012
AdapCC - adaptation for smallholders to climate change


Adap2T is a two-year project from the Cafédirect Producers' Foundation which supported six Kenyan and Ugandan smallholder tea organisations to adapt to the impacts of climate change. The project, which was funded by Comic Relief, used a participatory methodology to support the six organisations to each conduct a 'Risk and Opportunity Analysis' to assess local climate change impacts and to develop an organisational strategy to address the issues identified in the analysis. Organisational capacity building was delivered using a 'train the trainers' methodology and smallholder members of each organisation have recently begun applying farm-level adaptation techniques, such as planting diversification crops and installing energy-saving stoves.

We are looking for a Kenyan or Ugandan national to conduct an evaluation of the project, with a particular focus on the institutionalisation of knowledge within the producer organisations.

Essential criteria for this role are:

    Previous experience of conducting participatory evaluations and knowledge of participatory methods (such as Participatory Rapid Appraisal or Most Significant Change)
    Experience of working with grassroots producer organisations and/or smallholder farmers
    Availability to conduct the evaluation between 1st November and  7th December, including report writing and travel to producer organisations in Fort Portal, Uganda and Nandi Hills, Kenya
    The total budget for this evaluation is approximately $7,800 USD including travel and subsistence for field research visits to Nandi Hill, Kenya and Fort Portal, Uganda. The evaluation will consist of a total of  approximately 14 days' work including travel and writing the final report.

To apply:

Send CV and brief covering letter outlining suitability for the role to infocpf@cafedirect.co.uk by Wednesday 31st October. Please note that only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
