Job Description

The Seed Equal Initiative’s work package 7 (WP 7) is a one-year endeavor that is pivoted to strategically and explicitly to WFP programming on value chains, resilience, and school feeding. WP 7 engages with WFP to build more effective and inclusive value chains and use this pivot to demonstrate how seed plays a role in building better value chain/market opportunities for smallholders in chronic stress and emergency conditions. Also, it engages with WFP to strengthen their resilience programming in land restoration and other, similar projects where input markets and access to seed are critically important to success. Finally, WP 7 engages WFP to introduce more nutrient-dense and biofortified crops into the school feeding programs and other programs that it supports. This means helping countries access biofortified varieties and quality seed to supply local farmers, school gardens, and school feeding programs with, e.g., orange-fleshed sweetpotato, high iron beans, and vitamin A (orange) maize.
