Job Description

1. Context: ICR Facility and project
The Investment Climate Reform (ICR) ( Facility is set up to support African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) partner countries and regional institutions in their private sector structured dialogue process to create a more conducive business environment and investment climate. It aims to improve the business environment and investment climate in these countries. The ICR Facility is a programme which is co-funded by the European Union (EU), the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the British Council. It is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), the British Council, Expertise France, and Stichting Nederlandse Ontwikkelingsorganisatie (Netherlands Development Organisation, SNV).”

The ICR facility has three components of activities:
1. Technical Assistance for Business Environment and Investment Climate Improvement
2. Strengthening national and sub-regional development financial institutions
3. Compile and mainstream lessons learned and good practices
In the context of its mandate, the ICR Facility seeks to provide technical assistance to UNACOIS (Union Nationale des Commerçants et Industriels du Sénégal) in response to a request submitted by the UNACOIS Executive Board.
UNACOIS employs public-private dialogue to elaborate fiscal, customs, commercial and economic policy proposals likely to boost development. It promotes small and medium enterprises through services for its members.

2. Objective of the request
The structural base of the agricultural sector in Senegal is essentially composed of informal farmers' groups, women's groups (a majority of which are also informal), and a few formal cooperatives with limited activity. There are also institutional structures such as the SAED (Société d'Aménagement et d'encadrement du Delta) and national agencies responsible for providing support and technical assistance to actors in the agricultural sector, with variable impact in the value chain.
Women generally work under difficult conditions and suffer from various constraints such as access to finance and to markets.
The objective of this request is to support through technical studies and public-private dialogue the creation of cooperatives in the retail sector, particularly for women, in the agricultural value chain.
The analysis will focus on women's cooperatives in the trade and agricultural sectors to tackle the issue of women economic empowerment in the agricultural value chain in Senegal. This study could then be the used for a pilot program conducted by Unacois with around 500 women entrepreneurs, as a first experience of women's distribution/retail cooperative.

3. Scope of work: tasks to be performed by the contractor
The ICR Facility will complete a technical study using public private dialogue mechanisms.

The contractor shall provide the following services:
1. Prepare and facilitate kick-off meeting with key stakeholders : prepare PPT presentation outlining the content of the intervention (milestones, responsibilities and timeline). Liaise with the ICR Facility and Unacois to organize the meeting and invitations. Ensure that relevant stakeholders (validated with ICR Facility and Unacois) are invited and facilitate the meeting.
2. Diagnostic:

UNACOIS will establish a focal point for the project who will be in regular coordination with the consultant.
