Contribute to the formulation of a € 6 million project under the EU ''Partnership for Improved Nutrition in Lao PDR'' which focusses on Sustainable Nutrition-Sensitive Value Chains (including post harvesting) and Nutrition-Sensitive Rural Advisory Services in Phongsaly, Luang Namtha, Luang Prabang and Huaphanh Provinces . The expert will work closely with key stakeholders (National Nutrition Committee Secretariat, MAF, EU, AFD, etc...) and in particular the Provincial and District authorities in 4 selected provinces. Overall the formulation team should always be aware that this input is part of a larger effort to tackle nutrition challenges in Lao PDR as per National Nutrition Strategy and Plan of Action 2016-2025. Convergent support is being provided through the health, education, and WASH sectors with gender and behaviour change communication as critically important cross cutting topics to be considered. It is important that efforts are focussed on cost effective scaling-up of agricultural priority interventions through minimum overheads (eg TA, and other administrative burden).
