IRAQ-ITB-2020-013

NRC is an international non-governmental, humanitarian organization with 60 years of experience in helping to create a safer and more dignified life for refugees and internally displaced people. NRC advocates for the rights of displacement-affected populations and works in the following six main core competencies: shelter; education; livelihoods and food security; information, counselling and legal assistance (ICLA); and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).

NRC has been present in Iraq since 2010, and currently has offices located in Ramadi, Basra, Erbil, Dohuk, Hamam Al Alil, Mosul, Sinjar and Kirkuk. NRC has scaled up its response across Iraq to meet the large-scale crisis facing the country, reaching Iraqis with emergency assistance and economic recovery programs. Our goal is to always be prepared to work in new settings, so we are establishing more local partnerships in Iraq.

NRC is implementing a three-year agricultural livelihoods project (Activating Market-based Agricultural Livelihoods (AMAL)) in Ninawa and Kirkuk governorates targeting three districts (Sinjar, Ba’aj and Hawija) with funding support from KfW (German Development Bank).

Primary program objective is to promote the resilience of conflict-affected rural Iraqi communities through the restoration of agricultural production, markets and associated livelihoods through market development and value chain approaches.

This project specifically focuses on a) increasing agricultural productive capacity of farmers within the targeted areas, b) revitalization of markets within the agricultural value chain provides for increased employment opportunities in the targeted areas and c) targeted communities enhance their resilience to future shocks.

The Norwegian Refugee Council Office in Iraq invites interested consultants to conduct a detailed value chain assessment on agricultural value chains in Ninawa and Kirkuk governorate to identify strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for programming interventions.
