External Evaluation Consultant for Project Outcome Achievement

Program Overview

The overall goal of the Green Prosperity Sustainable Cocoa Production Program (GP-SCPP) is “Reduction of Poverty and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Indonesian Cocoa Sector”. The program will work towards this goal by addressing the factors that directly result in suboptimal yields as well as underlying issues (such as access to finance). The Program aims at enabling farmers to increase their productivity, thus their income, and improve household livelihoods, with common goals for reduction of poverty and greenhouse gas emissions in the Indonesian cocoa sector. The program outcome is increased competitiveness of an environmentally responsible and inclusive cocoa value chain. Intermediate outcomes are related to changes in behaviour of the cocoa sector related to production practices, environmental practices and their support to local communities.


GP-SCPP design builds on the rich experience of the consortium members both within Indonesia and globally. The consortium, led by Swisscontact with support fund by Millennium Challenge Account Indonesia (MCA-I) and Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), brings together eight private sector companies (Barry Callebaut, BT Cocoa, Cargill, Ecom, Nestlé, Mars Inc., Mondelēz, and Olam), the World Cocoa Foundation (WCF – a global industry organization focused on cocoa sustainability), and VECO Indonesia, and aligns its activities with the Cocoa Sustainability Partnership (CSP – the Indonesia multi-stakeholder forum). The consortium is working with Indonesian government institutions (at national, provincial and district levels) to scale up on-going consortium member program activities in line with the Ministry of Agriculture cocoa rehabilitation program (“Gernas 2” starting in parallel with this program), research institutes (Indonesian Cocoa and Coffee Research Institute ICCRI), and local NGOs in implementation of activities and dissemination of results.


GP-SCPP includes in 23 districts in 6 provinces namely Sumatera Barat, Sulawesi Selatan, Sulawesi Tenggara, Sulawesi Barat, Gorontalo and Nusa Tenggara Timur. GP-SCPP started in April 2015 and now enter the closing period up to March 2018, targeting 79,500 smallholder farmers trained trough Farmer Field School approach. At the end of the program, an end line evaluation will be conducted. It will replicate the methodology applied during the baseline for comparison purposes. This will allow the program to document changes in outcome and impact indicators per the program goals. On top of this, the program will assess & document the wider systemic impact on the cocoa sector.


This evaluation is planned for the last two quarters of the project and will have two (2) parts, i.e. (1) Monitoring on the Progress of Project Outcome Achievement and (2) Systemic Impact Assessment. The research design of the first part will use Quasi Experiment method combine with field qualitative analysis. For the second part, an elaborate research design will need to be developed.

Objectives

The objectives of the evaluation assignment are:

1.       to ensure the credibility, objectivity, impartiality and transparency of the study Monitoring on the Progress of Project Outcome Achievement that is conducted by internal GP-SCPP team by providing external critical reviews throughout the research process (from sampling, to data collection, to data analysis). By embedding the review function into the evaluation process, GP-SCPP team will be able to take immediate remedial action or perform adjustments to improve the quality of the study.

2.       to synthesize and analyse the final results of the Monitoring on the Progress of Project Outcome Achievement study in form of final report.

3.       to determine, describe, and quantify, where possible, the extent of wider systemic impacts in the cocoa sector in Indonesia attributed to SCPP program interventions by investigating changes among Private Sector Partners, Development Sector Partners, Government Partners, Cocoa Sector Platforms (Cocoa Sustainability Partnership and PISAgro), Farmers & Farmer Organizations, and others.

Methodology and Scope of Work

Desk Study - Literature Review

The purpose of the literature review is to identify the broader context to complement & ensure the consistency of the narrative of the outcome evaluation. It also provides early indications for the wider systemic changes in Indonesia’s cocoa sector.

In addition, literature review will be conducted through important articles, books, and other sources pertaining to this topic including GP-SCPP M&E Plan and Logframe, and WCF CocoaAction M&E Guide.

 

Quantitative Analysis

The evaluation will primarily use quantitative approach using household survey as the main instrument, complemented by farmers FGD & GIS analysis. GP-SCPP has a database called CocoaTrace as management tool to collect baseline data from every cocoa farmer household participating in project activities (census), and post-line data after 1-2 years by taking a representative sample. Baseline data includes farmer demographics, cocoa farm management practices and yields, workforce in farmer’s cocoa farm, land use and diversification practices, post-harvest practices, IDDS and PPI scorecards, nutrition practices, environmental practices and financial practices. The form has been developed through consultations with R&D team and private partners, and has been used in android apps format as Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI). The baseline is structured in a way to enable annual post-line surveys providing comparison to measure progress towards achieving the program’s desired results and for ongoing improvement of activities. This database can be utilized to analyse the program’s achievement in various dimensions.


For sampling, the Program selects groups of farms participating in the intervention that are as representative as possible of the overall target population of farms. This will be called treatment group. The treatment group consists of farmers who were trained in the Q1 (first quarter, April-June 2015). Farmers who are about to join Farmer Field School (FFS) will serve as good counterfactuals. Counterfactuals need to be as similar as possible to target groups in agro-ecological and socio-demographic factors so that any differences in performance between the groups are more likely to stem from the intervention than from other influences.

Conceptual Framework for Systemic Impact Assessment

The assessment will use the Adapt, Adopt, Expand and Respond framework for systemic change and using guidance from Fowler, B. (2014). Systemic Change and the DCED Standard. Market Share Associates.

Field Works

The consultant will join selective workshops & meetings on the outcome evaluation studies and participate in the FGDs. For the systemic impact study, the consultant, in close consultation with Swisscontact, will establish a travel plan to meet selected stakeholders in Indonesia.
