CONSTRUCTION, INSTALLATION AND MANAGEMENT OF A SOLAR POWERED-COLD CHAIN STORAGE FACILITY IN GARKI MODERN MARKET, ABUJA
This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued and will be administered by the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) in respect of the Enhancing Access to Safe and Nutritious Diets (ENSAND) project.
The project seeks to build on the lessons and progress from GAIN’s recent investments that includes creating demand for eggs (The ‘Eggs make Kids’ campaign), scaling up support for safe, nutritious food supply to traditional market (KFMW, EatSafe), engaging and supporting businesses, especially SMEs, to improve nutrition in Nigeria via the Scaling Up Nutrition Business Network (SBN), Commercialization of Biofortified Crops (CBC) and reducing postharvest loss (PLAN).
The overarching project objective is to increase access to and the consumption of nutritious foods at the household levels. The specific goal of the ENSAND project is to improve the dietary diversity of low-income (BoP) households in 3 states of Nigeria (Kaduna, Kebbi and FCT) with emphasis on children of school age and women. The ENSAND initiative is comprised of three integrated intervention pathways. These are the supply pathway that includes support for the home-grown school feeding program, market linkages, and business development support. The demand pathway involves increased consumer demand for eggs and other diversified nutritious food while the enabling environment component is focused on critical stakeholders’ ownership/buy-in, quality service delivery, and sustainability. The purpose of this project is to ensure that children from BoP households attending government primary schools consume eggs regularly while dietary diversity is also improved in these households.
The purpose of this consultancy is to construct, install, and partly managed for 3 months in coordination with Garki modern market association members, a market-based solar-powered cold storage facility.
