National Consultant Team - Value Chain Scoping
Helvetas, founded in 1955, is the largest Swiss-based and a leading European development non-governmental organization. We work in developing, emerging and transition countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe, partnering with poor and disadvantaged people to improve their livelihoods, strengthen local actors and create an institutional framework conducive to sustainable development. Helvetas has been operating in Vietnam since 1994 in the areas of agriculture, forestry, governance, water and sanitation, and rural development.
Helvetas Vietnam, in a consortium with WWF, IUCN and Fauna and Flora International (FFI), were recently selected to implement USAID’s Vietnam Biodiversity Conservation, a five-year project covering five provinces of central Vietnam. Helvetas Vietnam has the overall responsibility for the conservation-friendly enterprise development component, targeting forest-dependent communities bordering national parks in Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien Hue, Quang Nam and Lam Dong provinces.
We are looking for national consultant/consultant team to identify a range of existing and potential value chains of NTFP and high value agriculture products where raw materials are produced in forest-dependent communities in buffer zones of National Parks and Protection or Special Use Forests in the project area. Please find attached the Scope of Work (SOW) for the objectives and tasks for conducting this mission.
Interest candidates please send updated CV and detailed proposal to Helvetas.firstname.lastname@example.org before September 12th, 2021. Only short-listed candidates will be contacted.
