Three (3) Consultancies

September 23, 2014
The United Nations University - Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA) is currently accepting proposals to conduct a three (3) months data collection to gather climate, socio-economic and environmental data and information for use in climate impact, adaptation and vulnerability assessment in agriculture for ECOWAS.

The official calls for proposals are attached. The calls describe the overall work required and give instructions for submission of a proposal. Please note that the deadline for receiving proposals is September 23, 2014 at 17:00 GMT. Email enquiries should be sent to

These consultancies form parts of a research project on Climate Change, Agricultural Trade and Food Security in ECOWAS, which is being sponsored by the African Climate Policy Centre of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ACPC/UNECA). The overall objective of the research project is to assess whether or not agricultural production systems and trade policies in ECOWAS can be adjusted to alleviate the impact of climate change on food security and promote sustainable development in the region.
