Editor Consultant for the development of PIDA 2016 Progress Report

Tuesday, November 1, 2016
Infrastructure is at the heart of regional integration and development and one of Africa’s top priorities. As the least integrated continent, Africa as a continent is characterised by low levels of intra-regional economic exchange and the smallest share of global trade. Building new infrastructure and making existing infrastructure more efficient is vital for economic advancement and sustainable development.
It is for this reason that the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA), developed by the African Union Commission (AUC), NEPAD Agency, African Development Bank (AfDB), United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and Regional Economic Communities (RECs), promotes regional economic integration by building mutually beneficial infrastructure and strengthening the ability of countries to trade and establish regional value chains for increased competitiveness.
The 51 PIDA Priority Action Plan (PAP) programmes and projects are spread across the four sectors of Energy, Transport, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Trans-boundary Water. The programmes and projects are expected to lead to an integrated continent, fuelling international trade, job creation and sustainable economic growth.  In order to boost intra-African trade and raise the continent’s competitiveness in the global economy, the programme sets out short-term goals to be achieved by 2020, medium-term goals to be achieved by 2030 and long-term goals by 2040.
The NEPAD Agency, as the implementing agency of PIDA, reports back on progress in the delivery of the 51 PIDA programmes and projects annually, as a direct result of the collective efforts of PIDA’s stakeholders. The report will be presented during PIDA Week, a multi-stakeholder platform, to fast-track the speedy implementation of PIDA

It is at this background that the NEPAD Agency is seeking a Knowledge Management Consultant to produce the PIDA PAP 2016 Progress Report, used to track, monitor and report back on progress made in the implementation of PIDA.

The Editor Consultant shall:
  • Collate and review programmatic PIDA content and technical documentation; especially with regard to the PIDA Progress Reports 2015 Volume I and II;

  • Develop specific PIDA profiles for Regional Economic Communities (RECs);
  • Harmonise technical documentation and content;
  • Ensure that editorial styles, structure and writing are consistent;
  • Carry out more extensive editing where required, including rewriting, abridging and restructuring texts for greater readability and better logical sequence;
  • Fix grammatical, punctuation and spelling errors;
  • Consult with author departments to clarify ambiguities and rectify substantive errors.

  • A well-drafted and copy-edited PIDA Progress Report 2016, targeting PIDA stakeholders, including continental and regional bodies, donors and partners, potential investors, project developers, and the media.
  • Delivery deadline of master copy: 8th November 2016

The Consultant will be under the direct supervision of the Head of Regional Integration, Infrastructure and Trade Programme (RIITP). Work progress will be discussed on a regular basis, at least bi-weekly.
