ILRI Consultancy- Completion of the Agriculture Gender Policy for the Ministry of Agriculture Livestock Fisheries and Cooperatives(Closing date:11 August 2020)

International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit a consultant to undertake the completion of the Draft Agriculture Gender Policy which will promote and improve gender equality in the agriculture sector.

ILRI works to improve food and nutritional security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for efficient, safe and sustainable use of livestock. It is the only one of 15 CGIAR Research Centres dedicated entirely to animal agriculture research for the developing world. Co-hosted by Kenya and Ethiopia, it has regional or country offices and projects in East, South and Southeast Asia as well as Central, East, Southern and West Africa. www.ilri.org

General Background

Agriculture is a key economic driver in most African countries. In Kenya, the sector supports about 80% of the population living in rural areas, deriving their livelihoods directly from agricultural activities. However, the sector is faced with many challenges, among them gender inequalities across value chains and, external influencing factors that include governance, climate change and culture among others. These challenges hamper attainment of food and nutrition security, and overall agricultural transformation, growth and prosperity. A key strategy to address the systemic gender inequalities in the sector is development and implementation of a Gender Policy. It is against this background that the Kenya Agriculture Sector, in 2012, developed a Draft Gender Policy to address the multiple gender inequalities existing in the sector. The Draft Policy identified critical gender issues and challenges that needed to be addressed through policy actions and programmes.

However, the current Draft Policy was at the point of completion at which time the government of Kenya in 2013 adopted the two tier levels of governance. There is need for the two levels of government to input their contribution to the contents of the policy as important stakeholders in the gender agenda. The policy also needs to be aligned to the National Gender and Development Policy, 2019, SDGs and MTP III. Further, there are global and national scenarios that have emerged and need to be addressed in the policy. The Big 4 Agenda and Climate Change are some of these pertinent issues to be captured during the review process. In addition, the coordination and implementation mechanisms need to reviewed, to take into consideration changes that have since taken place.

In view of the above, there is need to engage a consultant who will undertake the task of upgrading, aligning the Draft Policy to reflect the current global, regional and national perspectives. This will lead to the completion of the Policy.

  • Assess and highlight the agriculture sector’s readiness and capacity to implement the Policy and recommend measures to ensure effective implementation
  • Ensure that the Gender Policy so developed serves as an entry point for actors in both public and private dealing with gender issues in the sector

  1. Review the Draft Policy, identify and isolate specific gaps based on current global, regional and national agricultural agenda and perspectives,
