Baseline Survey for Building Inclusive and Competitive Horticulture Businesses in Tanzania’s Southern Highlands

Rikolto is an international network organisation with over 40 years of experience in partnering with food chain stakeholders in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. We build bridges of trust and trade between the food industry, governments, research institutions, financial institutions and farmers’ organisations around one central question: ‘What will we eat tomorrow?’

Rikolto’s global strategy is directed towards structural changes in the agri-food system and upscaling of well-functioning practices and policies that unlock the farming potential of a critical mass of small holder farmers. Clear structural change/up-scaling agendas are agreed upon for which specific strategies and actions are developed. This is followed by design of concrete interventions in pilot chains in order to experiment, learn and build evidence to influence the agreed changes.

Rikolto in East Africa secured funding for a 4-year horticultural project in Tanzania, which aims to improve and increase market competitiveness in the sector. This will run from 2020 to 2023 in the Southern Highland Regions of Tanzania especially covering Iringa, Katavi, Njombe, Mbeya and Songwe.

We are currently looking for a consultant(s) to coordinate the process of the baseline survey to set the basis for the project’s implementation in Tanzania. The consultant will work under supervision of the Rikolto evaluation team to collect baseline data from farmers through desk reviews, individuals’ interviews, focus group discussions and some key informants in each region, such as extension officers, traders, other value chain actors and District Authorities.
