Baseline Survey for Climate Adaptation for Rural Livelihoods (CARL) in Zimbabwe Project
Deadline: 2 December 2018
Oxfam in Zimbabwe in partnership with Southern Alliance for Indigenous Resources, University of Zimbabwe, the Swedish Meteorological Hydrological Services and in collaboration with a number of Government partners will be implementing a SIDA funded grant titled ‘Climate Adaptation for Rural Livelihoods (CARL) in Zimbabwe’ for a period of 36 months starting September 2018. The project will be implemented in three districts of Buhera, Gutu and Bulilima which are in agroecological regions IV and V.
The goal of the project is to improve the well-being of Zimbabwe’s rural population and reduce poverty and food insecurity in the face of climate change. The underlying project development objective is to improve the climate resilience of agricultural production and rural livelihoods for 6,000 households in the targeted districts of Buhera, Gutu and Bulilima using the Climate Resilient Village (CRVs) approach among other tools and approaches.
This will be achieved through three interrelated outcomes, (i). Targeted vulnerable communities increase adoption of climate resilient livelihoods and agricultural production systems; (ii). Rural women and youth in targeted vulnerable districts increase their income and economic power in sustainable agriculture value chains, and (iii). Support institutions have strengthened technical capacities to address mitigation and adaptation concerns of rural livelihoods.
A consultant (company or consortium of individual consultants) is therefore sought to conduct a baseline for benchmarking the project indicators as defined in the project results framework for measuring progress.
