Overview and Purpose of Consultancy
Our CARE-WWF Alliance signature Initiative will start with a component that will train women in the development of climate-smart nurseries. The idea is to create an in-person training that offer women the skills needed to launch their own nursery – especially as related to native tree, plant and crop nurseries.
The goal of this consultancy will be to determine how to best structure this program and what curricula already exist for us to adapt and use in our program.
Scope of the Consultancy Work
The CARE-WWF Alliance seeks immediate assistance of an expert researcher and consultant knowledgeable and experienced in the areas of nursery development – as related to crops, plants and trees. The objective of the consultancy is to conduct a review of the nursery program structures and curricula and to offer recommendations on how to use their best components and good practices in the construction of a CARE-WWF Alliance training for young women in creating their own climate-smart nurseries.
Note: Depending on the capacity of the consultant selected for the above scope of work and the quality of the work delivered in this phase, there is potential for extending the work to include a second phase of developing the CARE-WWF Alliance Global Nursery Program structure and curricula.
The methods will depend on the consultant’s proposal, capacities and time/finances resources required. Methods must include review of training curricula and may include a wider literature review and/or focus group discussions or interviews with training program developers and/or implementers.
Timeline and Deliverables
The CARE-WWF Alliance seeks a consultant to begin this work as soon as possible. Deadlines will depend on the proposed methodology and start-date. Payments will be tied to deliverables approved by the CARE-WWF Alliance. The following captures the minimum set of deliverables expected:
