INVITATION TO TENDER
REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) FOR CONSULTANT(S) TO CONDUCT A LIVELIHOODS AND LABOUR MARKET ASSESSMENT IN TARGET COMMUNITIES OF ADAMAWA AND BORNO STATES FOR THE STABILIZATION AND RECONCILIATION IN THE LAKE CHAD REGION (STAR) PROJECT, FINANCED BY KFW ON BEHALF OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY
RFP NS: CRS-STAR-NE-2019-02 (REFERENCE TO BMZ NO 2019 40 626)
PROJECT EXECUTING AGENCY: CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES-UNITED STATES CONFERENCE OF CATHOLIC BISHOPS

Catholic Relief Services – United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (CRS) is an international non-governmental organization supporting relief and development work in over 99 countries around the world. CRS programs assist persons based on need, regardless of creed, ethnicity or nationality. CRS has operated in Nigeria since the year 2000 and has implemented different projects in 19 states of the federation.

For over nine years, the Lake Chad Basin (LCB) crisis – impacting Northeast (NE) Nigeria, the Lake Region of Chad, the Region of Diffa in Niger, and the Far North Region of Cameroon – has exacerbated existing vulnerabilities, torn apart communities and families, constrained livelihood opportunities, destroyed infrastructure, and dismantled local government’s ability to respond to the needs of its citizens. To address the myriad of inter-related and chronic factors inhibiting the recovery of resilient, rebuilt communities in the LCB, CRS was awarded a two-year (from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2021) Stabilization and Reconciliation in the Lake Chad Region (STaR) Project, which is financed by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through KfW (German Financial Cooperation).

The overall objective of the 24-month STAR Project is to contribute to the stabilization and reconciliation in the most affected regions of the LCB crisis (Borno and Adamawa States in Nigeria, Diffa Region in Niger, and Lake Province in Chad).

By this invitation to tender, CRS invites qualified Applicants with relevant past experience in conducting livelihoods and labour market assessments targeting youth in Northeast Nigeria to submit applications.
