WorldFish Zambia has been working closely with the government and other key stakeholders in the aquatic food systems sector supporting the government’s efforts to tackle the challenges in the nexus of food and nutritional security, environmental sustainability and climate resilience.

The country office is in the process of building a long-term engagement strategy in the country, and a critical part of the process is to develop a clear roadmap to mobilize resources to expand and strengthen the country programme, considering WorldFish’s comparative advantage, donor priorities, and most importantly, the requirements of the country and government priorities.

Scope of Work

The key tasks of the consultant are as follows:

  • Conduct policy analysis to document government priorities and ambitions in aquatic food systems (including capture fisheries and aquaculture).
  • Conduct stakeholder analysis and mapping of institutions relevant and key to aquatic food systems in Zambia.
  • Conduct donor analysis/intelligence gathering to document and map key donors and respective priority areas and investments in aquatic food systems in Zambia.
  • Leveraging WorldFish’s track record in Zambia and its overall comparative advantage, conduct discussions with government and other stakeholders to build a framework for WorldFish’s future program.
  • Organize and facilitate a government dialogue to obtain government endorsement of the program framework.
  • Based on the overall program framework, develop a fundraising plan that contains project idea notes, targeted donors, and strategic partnership directions.
  • Deliverable timeline: timeline for each output might be subject to adjustments (prior consultation and approval with WorldFish).
  • The consultant will work closely with the WorldFish team in Zambia, and the Business Development and Partnerships Unit in the WorldFish Headquarters.
