Rwanda: Policy and Investment Advisor, Rwanda

Organization: Crown Agents USA
Country: Rwanda
Closing date: 31 Jan 2018

Crown Agents USA, Inc. (CA-USA) is seeking a senior professional to fill the position of Policy and Investment Advisor to be based in Kigali, Rwanda who will provide support in areas of high priority to the USAID-funded PSDAG project.

Crown Agents USA

We are change agents for greater global prosperity, delivering practical innovations in economic governance and trade; humanitarian solutions and food security, health systems, monitoring, evaluation, and learning; and, supply chain as a partner of the US Government.

As a subsidiary of Crown Agents Limited, we leverage the expertise, resources, and network amassed from over 180 years of international development experience. Crown Agents works in 100+ countries, with on-the-ground presence in more than 35 and 13 permanent corporate offices in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. We are wholly owned by a nonprofit foundation, allowing us to combine corporate agility with a commitment to reinvesting our profits in transforming lives.

Located in Washington, DC and incorporated in 1998, Crown Agents USA provides technical assistance and support to clients such as the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), the U.S. Department of State (DoS), and the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).

Project Background:

The goal of USAID Private Sector Driven Agricultural Growth Project (PSDAG) is to increase smallholder incomes by promoting private sector investments– internationally and domestically [local and foreign investors]- that contribute to the Government of Rwanda’s (GoR’s) Vision 2020 aim of “transforming agriculture into a market-oriented, competitive, and high value sector.” PSDAG has two primary objectives:

  1. Assist the GoR to Increase Private Sector Investment;
  2. Facilitate Increased Private Sector Investment in Upgrading Agricultural Value Chains.

PSDAG will support GoR agencies involved in investment promotion by facilitating the transition that the government envisions for itself – as demonstrated through government agency policies – from that of direct agriculture investor to a role of regulator and facilitator. PSDAG will also build private sector capacity and facilitate expanded investments for existing and new private sector entities. PSDAG envisions creating a virtuous feedback loop where a robust private sector is investing in markets and producers for continual upgrading, while the government is creating the enabling environment for this upgrading to occur.
Under the supervision of the Senior Policy and Institutional Development Specialist the Policy and Investment Advisor (PIA) will work collegially with the EIA/Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources (MINAGRI) and the EIA/Rwanda Development Board and other PSDAG team members in contributing to achievement of PSDAG Development Objective 1: To assist the Government of Rwanda to increase private sector investment.

Achieving Objective 1 results will require development of a GoR agriculture and agribusiness investment framework. The framework will define GoR agency roles and responsibilities with a priority focus on the MINAGRI, RDB and Ministry of Commerce (MINICOM). Additional support will be provided to other national and provincial government agencies when appropriate. The framework’s overall intent is to structure and develop GoR capacity to attract and support successful private investment in agriculture and agribusiness. The investment framework will also contribute to an improved business enabling environment that reflects frequent and informed Public and Private sector Dialogue (PPD). It is expected that resolutions to issues discussed at PPD meetings will most likely entail policy reforms. In this regard, PPD discussions will be one of the areas of interest for the PIA to pick issues that may require PSDAG’s attention.

Role and Responsibilities:

Specific tasks for the Policy and Investment Advisor include providing input and support to the SPIDS, other PSDAG staff, and consultants in :

  • The development and implementation of a National Agribusiness Strategy and Investment Promotion Framework for the GoR. Ensure that the investment framework reflects extensive GoR inter-agency and private sector consultations and inputs.
  • The development of key investment promotion tools at MINAGRI and RDB to assist with effectively attracting new investment.
  • The implementation of activities that enhance public/private dialogue and interaction between GoR agencies and national and international agribusiness investment stakeholders. Ensure effective support to existing public-private dialogue processes that bolster interaction between Rwandan private and public sectors.
  • The creation and implementation of a GoR agency capacity development strategy for both investment promotion and public/private dialogue. The strategy’s objective is to strengthen the investment promotion capacity of the RDB, MINAGRI, MINICOM and other national or provincial government agencies with mandates to promote private agriculture and agribusiness investment, and build GoR staff capacity to analyse potential investment opportunities and facilitate the privatization of government investments.
  • PSDAG’s contributions to the analysis of policy and regulatory constraints to agriculture and agribusiness investment profitability, competitiveness and attractiveness, with a focus on the analysis that makes transparent the costs and benefits of relevant policies and regulations.
  • PSDAG’s identification, evaluation and pursuit of strategic and operational partnering opportunities with GoR agencies, private firms, donor agencies and donor funded projects and activities aimed at achieving PSDAG objectives. Partnerships with the private sector may include the implementation of grants.
  • Provision of project management support to the Objective 1 team for assigned projects. This may entail creating the technical aspects of scopes of work, requests for proposals/interests/applications, and negotiations memos; participation in technical review committees; and review of technical deliverables, among others.
  • PSDAG Objective 1 team contributions to annual work plans, monthly, quarterly and annual reports, discreet analytical documents, performance monitoring, presentations, success stories and other strategic and operational reporting.
  • Representing PSDAG in meetings with GoR officials, PSDAG stakeholders and USAID/Rwanda.
  • Performing any other task as assigned by the SPIDS or the Chief of Party.

Qualifications

Rwanda: Consultancy Services to Support the International Consultant in developing a Case Management and Referral Business Model for Social Protection programme delivery in Rwanda (for Rwandans only)

Organization: UN Children's Fund
Country: Rwanda
Closing date: 09 Jan 2018

UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to protect the rights of every child. UNICEF has spent 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Defending children’s rights throughout their lives requires a global presence, aiming to produce results and understand their effects. UNICEF believes all children have a right to survive, thrive and fulfill their potential – to the benefit of a better world.For every child,

The government of Rwanda aims to eradicate extreme poverty by 2020 and achieve an extreme poverty rate of below 9% by 2018. In order to achieve these demanding targets, there is a need to ensure that policies and programmes are put in place to effectively promote graduation out of extreme poverty.

Sustainable graduation therefore necessitates significant increases in household consumption/incomes and attainment of a level of resilience to shocks through diversification of livelihood activities, accumulation of productive assets and building of human and social capital. For many households such a transformation can only be achieved through the provision of extensive support in the form of social protection, productive asset grants, skills training and knowledge transfer, access to finance, coaching and facilitated access to economic opportunities etc. In addition, access to basic services such as health care, education, childcare, water, sanitation, electricity and other social care services as well as access to markets is critical for maximizing household productivity and resilience.

In an effort to strengthen the existing social protection delivery mechanisms and social welfare services that ensure vulnerable households including those with children receive timely, cost-effective, context-sensitive and quality services that respond to their multiple vulnerabilities, UNICEF, seeks to contribute to development of a referral and case management system that will create interlinkages among existing community workforces with a view of establishing more harmonised and coordinated proximity advisory services for social protection.

How can you make a difference?

The overall intention of this study is to create a framework within which all sectors playing a role in meeting the needs of extremely poor/vulnerable households communicate and act together, so that the dynamic, multidimensional and complex nature of family vulnerabilities is addressed.

To develop options for an effective and integrated case management and referral systems which will support the increase in access by extremely poor/vulnerable households with children to a comprehensive package of social protection interventions and available services, such as agriculture, health, nutrition, education, ECD and income generation.

Specific objectives of the study:

  • Develop a case management system and referral mechanism business model
  • Conduct a diagnosis of the existing systems of case management and referral and or fine tune existing tools or develop appropriate tools for use by case workers and local government officials;
  • Develop implementation plan for the approved business model.
  • To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have…

  • BA/MA degree or PhD in Public Policy, Public Health, Economics, Gender and Development Studies, Social Development, Sociology or other relevant fields.
  • At least 10 years’ experience in the fields of social protection, social development, policy and strategy development, research and/or policy analysis.
  • Full availability for the week of 29th January 2018 and good availability before and after for preparatory and follow-up work.
  • Proven ability to carry out qualitative field research.
  • In-depth knowledge of the challenges and constraints faced by extremely poor and vulnerable households in rural Rwanda.
  • Excellent understanding of existing village and cell-level service provision in Rwanda, of the roles of village leaders and SEDOs in coordinating this, and of sector Ministries in overseeing and supporting it.
  • Knowledge of the social protection sector and of the VUP programme in particular.
  • Strong analytical, interpersonal and communication skills.
  • Ability to produce deliverables on time and to a high quality.
  • Fluency in written and oral English and Kinyarwanda.
  • For every Child, you demonstrate…

    Our core values of Commitment, Diversity and Integrity and core competencies in Communication, Working with People and Drive for Results.
