    Terms of Reference : Value Chain Analysis

    Project Name : Enhancing Food Security In Yobe State, North Eastern Nigeria

    Sector : Food Security and Livelihoods

    Project Description & Rationale

    Action Against Hunger has been operational in Nigeria since 2010 responding to both chronic and acute needs through a multi-

    sector strategy in which Nutrition, Food Security and Livelihoods, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene activities are integrated to have a meaningful impact on people’s resilience.

    A protracted conflict in North East (NE) Nigeria has increased population vulnerability to displacement, destruction, loss of livelihoods, malnutrition, food insecurity, inadequate health services and poor sanitation since 2009.

    The conflict has directly affected 14.8 million people, of which 7.7 million need urgent humanitarian assistance. Yobe is among the most affected states of this violent conflict which has caused unprecedented population displacements and severe food insecurity with a significant number of people having very limited access to food.

    At the peak of the insurgency, markets in Yobe were greatly disrupted but are now on a recovery pathAction Against Hunger proposes to carry out a pro-

    poor value chain analysis from which three key commodity value chains that most affect the poor and key stakeholders in these value chains shall be identified.

    The analysis shall produce information about the critical areas of intervention in the value chains The project envisages to target 500 market actors for market related and financial literacy related sensitization, training, and information support to make use of the opportunities created during the previous market strengthening activities.

    However, out of these, 50 market actors shall be targeted for strengthening using both training and cash grants.The 50 actors shall be identified based on their positioning in the pro-

    poor value chain and their potential to have a wider impact on the value chain, if supported.

    Objectives of the Value Chain Analysis

    Study the existing value chains and prioritize the three most pro-poor commodities ().Identify the challenges, opportunities, and potential of various actors (farmers, traders, transporters, processors, etc.

    in the value chain of the three most pro-poor commodities.Analyze current market trends in terms of market demand and supply, price-

    scheduling mechanisms, market determinant factors, supply chains and government market regulatory and control mechanisms in relation to the three prioritized commodities value chains.

    Analyze potential risks the project beneficiaries may face with markets and suggest possible mitigation measures in relation to three prioritized pro-

    poor commodity value chains.Explore micro financing institutions in the area and illustrate how small-scale market actors related to the three priority commodities can be linked with them.

    Understand the capacity of small-scale market actors and any existing producer associations / organizations regarding production, scale up, input access, access to services, credit, information and resources in relation to the three prioritized pro-

    poor commodities.Document the capacity gaps in the prioritized pro-poor value chains and suggest improvements that are geared towards empowering all actors to independently exist in the market economy.

    Identify key actors for capacity building and the exact support they need to improve the prioritized pro-poor value chains in a fragile conflict affected area taking into consideration the bigger picture that involves other goods and services that were not prioritized in the study.

    To investigate the potential impact of the improving the pro-poor value chain on improvement of food & nutrition security in the area especially for the poor populations.
