TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR PUBLISHING SCAB - EU SUPPLEMENT

Background

SCAB (Strengthening CSO in Agriculture policy and participatory Budgeting) is a 3 year project funded by the European Union and implemented by ActionAid Rwanda and two other partners CLADHO and CCOAIB. ActionAid Rwanda is implementing this project to Strengthen CSO capacity in Promoting Sustainable Agriculture Policies and citizen participatory Budgeting in Rwanda.

The main purpose of this project is for CSOs, CBOs and Women farmer’s networks in 8 districts, to be supported and have the capacity to engage in agriculture policy shaping and public accountability to ensure sustainable food security in Rwanda. The 3 year project is implemented in 8 districts including Musanze, Gakenke, Karongi, Nyanza, Nyaruguru, Gisagara, Kamonyi and Muhanga.

This project aims at achieving three result areas namely:

Result 1 - CSOs’, CBOs’ and existing networks understand agriculture policies, their roles in formulation, and monitoring implementation of these policies and their organizational and budget related  technical capacities  supporting  a  long  term  engagement  with  public  authorities  are strengthened.

Result 2 - CSOs’ and other stakeholders organizing public dialogues on agriculture policies through their networking and coalition building structures to advocate for policy change and Result 3: 10 CSOs and 5 media houses have the capacity to collect and analyse agriculture budget information, and knowledge and skills to disseminate it to the public at a local, national and regional levels with a purpose of advocating for change.
