The objective of these terms of reference is to formulate a model community engagement framework for local government (LGA) PPP in Tanzania, provide provisions for the Model LGA PPP Agreement ( PPPA) to implement this model framework and provide a module for the draft LGA PPP operating guidelines for the practical application of community engagement and in particular this framework to PPP projects in Tanzania. The framework will be based on global best practices adopted in community engaged PPPs and will embody the lessons learned from different country engagements (both successful and failed), for example the World Banks citizen engagement for smart cities program and IFC’s stakeholder engagement: a good practice handbook for doing business in emerging markets.

IFC is looking for a Consultant to help assess the impact of two GAFSP/IFC projects in Tanzania/Senegal , investments in two banks in Tanzania/Senegal to support their agriculture finance business. These are two separate, stand-alone, assessments. The reason they are included in this same selection is that IFC prefers to have one Consultant conduct both assessments given that they are in the same country. The methodology is expected to be quasi-experimental design with quantitative and qualitative data collection. The Consultant is expected to have extensive experience in conducting impact evaluations in the agribusiness sector in developing countries.

DIME is a global program in the Banks Research Group that carries out Impact Evaluations (IEs) to test innovations and find solutions to make policy work. As a bridge between research and development operations, DIME provides a substantial knowledge contribution by generating high-quality evidence across a set of strategic development areas. The IE Text Messaging for Behavior Change in Zambia is part of the DIME program and aims to use a novel text-messaging-based intervention to: 1) identify behavioral barriers that lead to low engagement with formal financial services amongst those using the services; and 2) test strategies to help people overcome those barriers to increase engagement and financial security. To implement this IE, DIME is seeking proposals for a technology partner to operate a two-way conversational text-message system to improve savings account usage and improve loan repayment rates for financial sector clients in Zambia

The proposed study will investigate the risks created by lake level fluctuation now and under climate change for transport on and around Lake Victoria, and identify solutions to reduce these risks. It will answer the following questions: how would different lake water-level scenarios (e.g., overall increase, overall decrease, and status quo. and associated variation range) impact transport operations (port infrastructure and operations and access roads) given different scenarios on shipping demand growth? What could be good investment strategies given that we cannot predict future lake level fluctuation or transport demand on the lake?
