Biovision Africa Trust (BvAT) wishes to recruit an expert to train its Ecological Organic Agriculture (EOA) project implementing partners on results-based monitoring, evaluation, accountability/reporting, learning and data management. The project has integrated a results-based management (RBM) as a key approach to its project planning, monitoring, evaluation, reporting and learning under an overall M&E framework.
The training will enable the implementing partners to upgrade their knowledge and skills in planning, implementing, monitoring, and reporting on the progress and the results of the projects using the results-based management approach. The training will also give the partners the needed data collection and management skills for analysis and effective reporting.
The project’s overall goal is to contribute to mainstreaming Ecological Organic Agriculture into national agricultural production systems by 2025 to improve agricultural productivity, food security, access to markets and sustainable development in Africa. This is an African Union-led continental undertaking currently implemented in nine countries (Rwanda, Benin, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda). It is implemented under the guidance and oversight of the AU chaired Continental Steering Committee (CSC) to establish an African organic farming platform based on available best practices; and to develop sustainable organic farming systems and improve seed quality. Based on its 10-year Strategic Plan (2015-2025), its mission is to promote ecologically sound strategies and practices among diverse stakeholders involved in production, processing, marketing, and policy making to safeguard the environment, improve livelihoods, alleviate poverty, and guarantee food
security among farmers in Africa.
