Job Title: Programme Officer
As the Programme Officer will be responsible for organizing, monitoring and contributing to the implementation the Gendered Enterprise Market (GEM) + Value Chain strategy and Food security activities. To ensure that activities are well coordinated, effective and on track to achieve the programme’s objectives.
Program Description:
The Project has been designed to achieve SAP s goal of increasing food security and decreasing hunger through agriculture-led growth and inclusive market access by smallholder farmers. The programme objectives are to improve smallholder productivity, expand markets and trade, and increase private sector investment in agriculture, looking at the three strategic direction in the SAP strategic plan.
Programme will achieve these objectives by applying a private-sector led, equitable and facilitation value chain approach. The Gendered Enterprise Market (GEM) and value chain approach starts with well-defined, VC-specific market opportunities, around which Soya Beans Value Chain actors can mobilize. VC interventions will be catalytic, addressing systemic issues that enable growth in additional VCs and create a culture of innovation and competitiveness, even at the village level. The project’s interventions will address a mix of upgrades at the farm, post-harvest, processing and market levels.
Through the Pathways Out of Poverty approach, “push strategies will be aimed at the very poor and directly address the constraints limiting market engagement and “pull” strategies will be aimed at smallholders who are more market ready. SAP will take a facilitative approach, partnering with local and private sector entities so VC actors can pursue market opportunities sustainably. The project will identify exit strategies early in the program to ensure that our activities will result in a stronger, more resilient market system that integrates the poor.
