AMEA-FAO-IFPRI Case Study Report 

Terms of Reference

 As a result of our new partnership with IFAD, AMEA is investing in our Toolkit. AMEA now aims to develop a case study report for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).

FAO, IFPRI and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) are collaborating to review “Strategies to invest in human capital in agriculture”. The one-year project will review existing initiatives, develop a typology of AHCI, hold a global dialogue on good practices, conduct 6-10 case studies on promising approaches, hold global meetings and a high-level policy dialogue, and produce a report, policy brief, and journal articles to share the findings.

AMEA sees an opportunity to deepen and strengthen its’ planned case studies by collaborating with the FAO/IPRI initiative. The Objective of this Terms of Reference (ToR) is therefore to develop one case study report which draws learning from three IFC projects in West Africa.


AMEA has worked with IFC and IFPRI to develop the ToR below and are asking for consultants (preferably in West Africa) to submit proposals by 12th July. For more information, please contact
