LINC has been awarded the Kenya Accelerated Value Chain Development (AVCD) Program Performance Evaluation Task Order under the USAID/Kenya and East Africa Evaluations, Assessments, and Analyses IDIQ (USAID/KEA-EAA).
The Kenya Feed the Future (FTF) AVCD Program activity is a five year World Bank buy-in field-support Grant to a consortium of Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Centers led by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). The FTF-AVCD Program harnesses the technologies and innovations within the CGIAR to contribute to the development objectives of the USAID Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) for Kenya, in line with the strategic objectives of Kenya’s FTF Strategy.
The primary purpose of the evaluation is to assess the activity design and implementation to inform the design of future activities which harness agricultural technology and innovations within the CGIAR and other research organizations. The evaluation aims to capture lessons learned to improve impact of future agricultural technology and innovation activities; inform and improve policies, and strengthen the design of future activities.
The Evaluation will be conducted by LINC and its consortium partner ICF Macro (ICF).
