|Terms of Reference for a baseline evaluation the Scaling-up of the Farmer Field and Business School (SUFFBS) in Uganda|
This is a follow on intervention to the SFtW (She Feeds the World) project that was implemented between 2018 and 2022 within some of the sub-counties of Kyenjojo and Kyegegwa. SFtW project contributed to the improvement of food and nutrition security of 120,000 vulnerable people and their families directly, with a strong emphasis on women small-scale producers. However, despite the notable significant impact seen by increased women participation in leadership, increased yield and household income, and transformation of men, there is still limited impact compared to the need. The project has also achieved less in targeting new user groups and sectors, limited expansion of markets and leveraging the private sector linkages for the most marketable agricultural value chains. Remarkably limited government engagement and adoption of the FFBS model could be incorporated within the government extension and production delivery mechanisms and its alignment to the PDM. Furthermore, there is limited research, documentation, lessons, and learnings of the best practices that could be replicated in other programs.
The Baseline Evaluation
The consultant is expected to work closely with the SUFFBS project team and provide overarching strategic guidance and advice to the entire baseline process. The SUFFBS team has already made a solid start on preparations for the baseline for the consultant to review and revise as he or she sees fit, once on board. A draft baseline protocol and MEAL Plan has been developed. In addition to reviewing this preparatory work to date, the consultant will lead on data analysis and reporting. Data collection in the field will be implemented by the CARE Uganda team, with guidance of the consultant.
We look forward to receiving your bid by October 10, 2022. Bids should include the company, organisation or consultants’ profile, experience, writing samples and references as well as a suggestion of the methodology, time and action plan, a proposed budget and if necessary, suggestions and recommendations to the Terms of References.

|Terms Of Reference For Mapping Actors In The Polyetytene Terephthalate (Pet) Plastic Waste Value Chain |
Background – About the Earth Care project
The Earth Care project is an 8months project, targeting 10 municipalities of Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area (GKMA) and Gulu City Council (GCC) in Uganda. The purpose of the project is to:
• Reduce PET plastic waste pollution in the water and land across GKMA and GCC.
• Increase private sector investments into PET plastic recycling sector
• Increase the number of jobs in the PET plastic recycling sector.
• Improve skills and capacity of public and private sector to collectively address recycling across GKMA.
• Change attitude and behavior of citizens of Greater Kampala towards plastic waste.
The project, which is funded by GIZ, will be implemented by CARE International in Uganda with support from CARE Germany and in close collaboration with the leadership of the targeted municipalities
Consultancy objectives and Scope
To enable GKMA and GCC tackle the collection gap and its related challenges, CARE will facilitate a better coordination mechanism of the PET waste value chain, by identifying gaps in coverage of PET waste collection and incorporating the unlicensed hubs and collectors into the formal solid waste management eco-system. A critical step in facilitating better coordination is the mapping of existing and identifiable actors in the PET recycling value chain i.e., formal hubs, informal collection sites, waste aggregators and processors (including factories) and developing a database of these actors. It’s against this background that CARE is seeking consultancy services to undertake a mapping of PET actors (especially the downstream actors).
