Vacancy Description

SNV is a not-for-profit international development organization that applies practical know-how to make a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty.

We focus on smallholder farmers willing and able to implement farming-as-a-business, as well as the small and medium agricultural enterprises that are essential to transforming agricultural value chains. We support systems change and develop markets so that they function more effectively, sustainably, and beneficially for people living in poverty, building their capacities to improve their lives. Important elements are a system’s change perspective, a focus on sustainability and a continuation of market services, facilitating changes that improve adaptive intervention and the way markets work.

Project background

The Climate Resilient Agribusiness For Tomorrow – East Africa (CRAFT-EA) Programme is a 5-year, € 39 million project being implemented in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. The project uses an inclusive Business Development approach to support the international and Dutch efforts on climate change and sustainable production in arable farming. The programme will work with and through the private sector and supports public sector partners in creating an institutional environment for wide-scale adoption of CSA-practices. It is driven by 3 pillars: i) adoption of CSA practices & technologies in arable crop production farming systems; ii) acceleration of investments and business growth in selected value chains; iii) improved enabling environment for scaling out of CSA. Interventions are centred on business cases which are derived from a thorough climate risk assessment and financial analysis of value chains in pulses, oilseeds, potatoes, and grains. A climate smart business case matching grant facility aims to further improve access to finance and facilitate scaling. The programme is implemented by a consortium consisting of SNV, Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the CGIAR research programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), Agriterra and Rabobank, and is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS).
