Description

About Mercy Corps

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.

Program / Department Summary

Mercy Corps has been present in Myanmar since 2008, focusing its interventions on inclusive economic development, social cohesion, local governance and climate change. In 2019, the programs have contributed to (1) managing conflict, (2) responsive governance and (3) inclusive and green growth in the following ways: (1) More than 200 local authority and civil society leaders, representing 1.5 million people, from 12 Townships across 3 States/Regions, were able to fairly, effectively, and sustainably resolve conflict, address community grievances, and prevent violence due to enhanced mediation and negotiation skills. (2) Responsive governance: Village level development planning processes in 7 Townships in Ayerwaddy Region, reaching 540,000 people, were more inclusive, transparent, and decentralized, and local authorities are more responsive to community development needs. Mercy Corps delivered 1,141 community-identified and managed infrastructure projects as a result of increased and more transparent community consultations, promotion of participatory approaches by government staff and improved coordination between government departments. (3) Inclusive economic growth: More than 10,000 farmers and 800 entrepreneurs gained access to new services, such as private sector-led training, and technology, such as plastic ground covering, through a more inclusive, efficient rice and vegetable market system. 120 Mercy Corps-supported entrepreneurs, largely women and youth, sold 1,000+ energy-efficient cook stoves that reduce emissions and firewood usage by more than 50%.

With funding from a wide variety of bi-lateral, multi – lateral and private donors, Mercy Corps has been able to work together with communities in Myanmar to respond to community needs as well as policy gaps bringing benefit to more than 87,500 households in 10 States and Regions in 2019 alone.

Description

Introduction

Small-Scale Aquaculture Investments for Livelihoods and Nutrition (SAIL) in Myanmar is a five-year investment by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to WorldFish to sustain positive aquaculture sector growth through an inclusive market systems approach. This project will provide a means of ensuring the improved availability of diverse, safe, affordable nutrient-rich foods, especially for women and young children from poor and vulnerable households. The Activity will stimulate aquaculture sector growth, increase employment and income, and improve food and nutrition security for households. It will serve a facilitating role by coordinating linkages among the value chain actors in the private, public and civil society sector of Myanmar.

Goal and Objectives

The goal of the Activity is to achieve inclusive aquaculture sector growth through a market systems approach. Specific objectives are:

Increasing aquaculture production through strategic activities including improved land and water use, increased access to high quality inputs (feed, seed and equipment), capacity development and research into production, and access to credit.

Developing Market-based System Approaches (MSA) further and utilize those to increase access to food safe fish and fish products by poor people, and ensure that market systems function more effectively, sustainably and to the benefit of the poor.

Deliver enhanced nutrition and WASH practices via social behavior change communication (SBCC) and developing capacities into the production, processing and consumption of food safe aquaculture and other fish-based products.

Key Targets

  • 30,000 men, women and youth in Kachin[1], Mandalay[2], Magway[3], Southern Shan[4], Easter Shan[5] and Sagaing[6] have improved income from aquaculture.
  • Increased access to market related to inputs and services (e.g. seed, feed, production/market-related information, technologies etc.).
  • 30 percent increase in productivity from ponds and rice-fish farming systems.
  • 25 percent increase in the number of households adopting improved nutritional practices (consumption of nutritious food, dietary diversity and hygiene practices).

Intermediate Results (IR)

IR 1: Small-scale aquaculture production increased by improved land and water use, increased access to high quality inputs, access to credit. Water security modelling climate impacts on water availability and timing.

SUB-IR 3.2: Improved access to diverse, safe and nutritious food

Sub IR: 3.3 Nutrition education and behaviour change communication activities to increase fish consumption by infants, young children and women of reproductive-age

Approach

The Activity will apply an inclusive market systems approach to implement interventions through organizations and private sector entities to reach smallholder farmers. It will facilitate rather than directly delivering aquaculture interventions, hence transferring ownership to the private sector companies and organizations. The approach will be to analyze the present context, identify the problems and underlying root causes of poorly functioning markets, seek solutions with and by the private sector and organizations. The Activity will identify rationales for investment, and use partnerships and grants to leverage co-investment by the private sector. It will focus on seeking sustainability from the beginning by building the capacity and resilience of local systems so that the interventions continue beyond the Activity lifecycle. It will adapt to changing contexts through collaboration, review, learning and reflection. The Activity will stimulate innovations, competitiveness and transformative changes.

Aquaculture Business Promotion Announcement (ABPA)

The Fund is eager to explore existing opportunities to promote social cohesion and contribute to peace in Myanmar through its health-related work. The Fund is thus looking to hire a Consultant to develop a working paper (i) reviewing the Fund’s past and ongoing work in relation to conflict / social cohesion, and (ii) outlining future approaches and opportunities for greater contribution to social cohesion and peace, streamlining this work into the Fund’s approach and Strategy presented in the Board-approved ‘Access to Health Fund’s Overall Strategy’. 

This work will be conducted in close collaboration with the Access to Health Fund Management Office, the Fund’s Board (Donors and MOHS), implementing partners, EHO/CBHOs, conflict advisers, and other partners.

Scope of Work

(i) Review of the Fund’s work on conflict and social cohesion to date

The consultant is expected to:

Review and summarize existing literature on the Fund’s work in conflict since 2012

Review and summarize the Access to Health Fund strategy, EHO/CBHO-engagement strategy, conflict-sensitivity policy, and other relevant documentation guiding the work of the Fund.

Review relevant literature and consult with relevant stakeholders to summarize current practices in relation to conflict and social cohesion. 

(ii) Develop a strategy/working paper on the Fund’s ‘contribution to social cohesion’

The working paper is expected to:

a.  Provide the summary described in 3.i. above 

b.  Given the above scope and definitions, define the range of meanings that ‘promoting social cohesion’ could have for the Access to Health Fund, and respond in particular to the following questions:

  • Given its mission and mandate, what level of ambition should the Fund set for its impact on social cohesion? What are limitations to what the Fund and its partners can achieve, given the Fund’s mission, approach, and available resources?
  • Building on existing definitions of Social Cohesion, and the particular context of the Access to Health Fund, the paper should propose working definitions of ‘social cohesion’ and ‘promoting social cohesion’ that the Fund can adopt to guide its ambition/work in this area   
  • Building on existing literature, explore similarities and differences in how social cohesion is conceptualized by Donors, the MOHS, EHO/CBHOs, Implementing partners, and the FMO, and discuss how differing views from different stakeholders need to be taken into account when designing appropriate programs.
  • At what levels should the Fund focus its social cohesion efforts: for example, civil-society empowerment, meaningful participation of women in decision-making, intercommunal activities and trust-building, State-community interactions, wider social/political dynamics hindering social cohesion? 
  • In particular, the consultant should consider linkages between social cohesion and the realization of good health: what level of social cohesion is necessary, and what can be built/improved to ensure that access to health services is possible? This might include trust building in health services, community relationship strengthening to facilitate smooth access to health care, etc.
  • How should the Fund adapt its work to different phases of conflict and to the differing status of actors/partners - e.g. Ethnic Health Organizations affiliated to signatory and non-signatory groups?
  • What opportunities exist to include conflict sensitive EHO representation in the Access to Health Fund Board?
  • Propose both short-term and longer-term measure to promote social cohesion, in line with the timeframe of Access funding. 

c. Given proposed definition and areas of focus, present options for context-appropriate approaches for the Fund’s promotion of social cohesion through its Health work:

  • What opportunities/entry-points exist for advocacy and policy change that can lead to better social cohesion? (E.g. desegregating hospitals, increasing language accessibility in health facilities, increasing access...)
  • What opportunities exist to promote and increase social cohesion (horizontally between communities, and vertically in the relation between government’s policies/practices and communities) through the Fund’s work on health services for vulnerable populations in conflict-affected areas?
  • Given the Fund’s focus on pockets of vulnerability, to the possible exclusion of neighboring areas, how should the Fund deal with potential perceptions of unfairness in relation to its interventions, and how should it approach this from a social cohesion promotion point of view?
  • Has the Fund been seizing and acting on all of these opportunities?  
  • When it hasn’t, what else can the Fund do to maximize its contribution to social cohesion through its work on Health? In what ways would the Fund need to review/modify its activities and approach? What new resources will be required? 
  • When it has, the paper should describe (i) how the Fund has gone about it and (ii) how it could enhance its current approaches with a view to furthering social cohesion. For example:
  • Doing more in applying conflict-sensitivity principles 
  • Using joint EHOH/CBHO-MoHS forums and consultations more effectively
  • Supporting EHO/CBHOs (direct funding, capacity building, etc.)
  • The paper should provide examples, whenever possible, of situations where proposed approaches have been implemented by others.
  • What opportunities exist to create greater alignment on social cohesion strategies, approaches, and measurement, with other actors (starting with UNOPS, LIFT, and UN sister-agencies)

d. Measurement

  • How can the Fund’s contribution to social cohesion be measured (quantitatively and qualitatively)?
  • How should the Fund’s ambition in relation to Social Cohesion be reflected in the results framework? 
  • How, in particular, can the sustainability of the Fund’s contribution be measured? 

e. Risks, mitigation, and limitations: 

  • The paper should outline strategies for maintaining Fund-supported service-delivery within conflict-affected areas, including in active conflict situations
  • The consultation should assess risks and mitigation measures in the Fund’s engagement with EHO/CBHOs and the Ministry of Health and Sports at all levels, as well as other relevant areas. 

Deliverables should be submitted electronically to the Fund Directors Office and Health for All/Civil Society team.

Within one month after the start of the consultation, desk-review and consultations completed. 

Within 45 days after the start of the consultation, draft version of the report completed and submitted to Access to Health Fund - for Board and FMO review.

Within two weeks after receiving Board and FMO feedback on the completed draft, the final version of the strategy/working paper completed.

Timeframe

The consultancy is currently expected to be contracted for around 30 days.
