1 Job Profile Senior Adviser (N1) - Agricultural Development Economic Growth Programme Bolivia Reference number: DK /BOL.03-W 1 Preliminary 1.1. Short background: The Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth Programme (Growth Programme) will be initiated in the beginning of 2014 and runs until 2018 as an integrated part of the Country Programme for Bolivia, which also includes two other thematic programmes 1) The Natural Resource Management and Climate Change Programme and 2) Promotion of Exercise of Rights and Access to Justice. The Growth Programme focuses on inclusive and sustainable economic growth both within the productive/private sector and within the agricultural sector of which this position applies to the latter. A senior adviser will also be assigned to the productive/private sector and substantial coordination between the sectors is an indispensable requirement. The Growth Programme comprises a total of seven Development Engagements where the local partners for the agricultural sector are: the Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Development (MDRyT), the National Institute of Research and Innovation for Agriculture and Forestry (INIAF), and the public/national programme EMPODERAR- DETI (DETI), targeting local rural development. The position implies primary emphasis in INIAF with regards to institutional development and strengthening, including the implementation of the PISA Programme ((Proyecto de Innovación y Servicios Agrícolas). Besides, the position implies primary emphasis in DETI with regards to the introduction and consolidation of the development programme in the Amazon region Purpose of memo: This memo describes the sector context and the main tasks for the position and the qualifications requested from candidates to the job Expected composition of the selection committee: Applicants for the position will be selected for interview by the Danish embassy following consultation with the local authorities, who will also be represented at the job interview. Mercuri Urval will participate in the process of appointment by conducting personality tests and test interviews with the selected candidates, as well as by taking part in the final interview. The final interview panel consists of the programme officer from the embassy, a representative from the local authorities, and the consultant from Mercuri Urval A/S in charge of the recruitment process. 1

2 2. The Programme 2.1. Context: The agricultural sector has been supported by Danida for several years and the present programme is based on previous experiences and lessons learned. Agriculture in Bolivia accounts for 15% of the Gross Domestic Product, but the sector employs 42% of the active population. During the last decades, Bolivia has seen important shifts within the agricultural sector. Not only has the possession and use of land shifted from 85% being owned by small-scale subsistence farmers cultivating tradition crops such as potatoes, beans and quinoa to the present day where 50% of the agricultural area is owned by large-scaled farmers producing agro industrial crops such as soya, sunflower and rice - primarily for exportation. Additionally, the agricultural area has increased from an estimated 1.1 million hectares (1980) and to 2.7 million (2007), which represents a 3% increase of the cultivated area per year. In real terms, agricultural activity in the traditional production areas - the highlands and valleys - has not changed much but new areas have been incorporated mainly in the tropical lowland area. A consequence hereof is a dramatic increase in the deforestation rates from km2/year in the nineties, to approximately km2/year as of today. The highest level of poverty is concentrated within the rural population in the highlands, where most of the programme activities are concentrated. Despite the dramatic increase in cultivated land, agricultural productivity in Bolivia has not increased during the last decades. Minifundio - small unit size and highly divided plots - and land degradation, especially in the highlands and valleys, plays an important role in this regard. However, some of the most important factors are the lack of private and in particular public investments and the lack of research and extension services - public as well as private. In consequence, new knowledge, methods and technologies are therefore not being researched, developed and applied in the extent needed, although they are clearly articulated priorities within both the national agricultural strategy and the national Development Agenda The shifts in scale of production, the lack of research and investments, the expansion of the agricultural frontier in combination with the changes from traditional to agro industrial crops have in combination put the environment under extreme pressure and presents a still increasing threat towards the domestic food security. This urges the need for innovative, green, and not least specialised and affordable technologies and production methods that can facilitate a more sustainable production and secure a more efficient management of the scarce and extremely vulnerable natural resources such as water and land. The Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth Programme therefore revolves around improved public services and increased public-private investments in form of more focused, but broad based research. Amongst other things, this includes development, diffusion and implementation of innovative and sustainable productions methods, improved and certified native seeds, appropriate mechanisation technology and adaptation to climate change. Synergies with the Natural Resource Management and Climate Change Programme will be of high priority. Special issues of attention in this regard will be efficient natural resource management such as irrigation, management of forestry and forest fires, and extended use of renewable energy. Prior experiences from DETI have also shown that creation of strategic alliances and facilitation of common investment projects between the public and private sector have an important impact on more efficient and focused efforts towards the elimination of bottle necks within the 2

3 agricultural value chains. This line will therefore also be pursued even further within the future programme The programme in short: The objective of the Inclusive and Sustainable Economic Growth Programme is: Contribute to sustainable and inclusive economic growth within the agricultural and productive sectors, reducing poverty and inequality in Bolivia based on the policies and strategic framework of the Government of Bolivia. Although Danida support is considered a minor contribution to the Bolivian economy, the development impact will be measured on the basis of an increase in the Internal Gross Product for agriculture and industry (extractive industries not included) and a decrease in the index for income distribution (Gini Co-efficiency Index). The programme targets increased transparency within the public institutions through support to e.g. elaboration of annual work plans, long term strategies, well-defined development indicators and improved monitoring systems. The concrete activities of funding to farmers, or support to small or medium sized entrepreneurs (SMEs) in urban areas, will be based on needs defined by the farmers and SMEs themselves, thereby ensuring local ownership and sustainability. Furthermore, support for the private sector is aiming at a more participatory dialogue on the economic growth agenda providing space and voice to both the public and private, formal and informal sectors. The programme supports a total of five public or semi-autonomous institutions/programmes, of which the three presented below are local partners within the agricultural sector. The remaining two, the Ministry of Production and ProBolivia- JIWASA, are local partners within the area of production/private sector. Furthermore, support for one private sector organisation and an innovation fund are under elaboration. Support for the private sector organisation is not included in the portfolio of the present job profile, whereas support and monitoring of the Innovation Fund will be a shared and coordinated task in between the Senior Adviser for Agriculture and the Senior Adviser for Production and Private Sector. Bilateral agreements defining expected outcomes, outputs and indicators have been elaborated in close cooperation with each local partner. A. Ministry of Agriculture: The Ministry of Agriculture is a long standing partner for Denmark, resulting in the development of a five-year strategic plan, various underlying sector policies, M&E systems and an increase in budget execution. Future support is expected to be carried out based on a delegated cooperation agreement with Switzerland (COSUDE). Primary activities supported will be: support to shortterm and long-term strategic planning; elaboration and integration of indicators on gender/environment/climate change/indigenous peoples into the legal and service framework of the Ministry; establishment of an electronic database on strategic studies and investment proposals. The expected outcome is to strengthen the institutional management and capacity of the Ministry. The outcome indicator is to increase the budget implementation of the Ministry from 67% to 85% by Total cost: 13 million DKK. Danish contribution is DKK 11 million. B. National Institute of Research and Innovation for Agriculture and Forestry (INIAF): Danida has supported INIAF for five years. Main results have been the creation of a 3

4 well-functioning seed certification system and development of a new agricultural innovation system including research and technical assistant components. The Danish support will be provided within a co-financing arrangement with the World Bank, Switzerland and Italy. Concrete activities will be: Technical assistance and seed certification, procurement of office equipment and lab facilities, creation of public and private research alliances, strengthening of the institutional functions on research, short-term and long-term strategic planning and elaboration and implementation of an M&E system. The expected outcome is that the agricultural and forestry sectors have access to innovations, which enable increases in productivity and ensure sustainability of production systems. The outcome indicator is to have 9 new strategic national research programmes (quinoa, vegetables, maize, wheat, potato, livestock, rice, forestry, sugar cane) implemented in partnership with public, private and/or civil society by Total cost: DKK 303 million. Danish contribution: DKK 16 million. C. EMPODERAR-DETI: EMPODERAR is a decentralised and semi-autonomous unit under the Ministry of Agriculture responsible for executing the national agricultural development programme DETI. DETI provides technical assistance to small-scale farmers and facilitates rural public-private investment projects based on inclusive decision-making models at local level. Concrete activities supported are: Cofinancing of rural investment plans of small farmer organisations in the departments of Chuquisaca, Potosi, Oruro and La Paz; co-financing of rural investment plans of local governments in the departments of Chuquisaca, Potosi, Oruro and La Paz; technical assistance regarding regional consultation processes. In alignment with government priorities, Danida will support the introduction of the DETI-model in the Amazon region complementing efforts within the thematic programme of Natural Resource Management. The expected outcome is to contribute towards increasing the gross agricultural income of small-scale farmers in rural areas. The outcome indicator is that 20,000 small-scale farmers, of whom 36% are women, manage to raise their gross agricultural income by at least 10%. Total costs: DKK 142 million. Danish contribution: DKK 120 million. Inter-institutional coordination and synergies with other efforts supported within the Country Programme are main priorities with regards to all local partners. Donor coordination and cooperation is equally a priority especially in relation to COSUDE. 3. The Position 3.1. Title: Senior Adviser (N1) Agricultural Development 3.2.
