Job Summary:

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an important aspect of implementation to ensure that benefits under the project are as intended and that they are shared by affiliated farmers and others in the participating provinces, particularly by the poor. To achieve this, baseline studies need to be undertaken during the subproject design phase to identify the current socio-economic conditions of the ABE and their affiliated farmers to assess the impact after subproject completion. Financial performance monitoring will be an integral part of the subproject monitoring for ABEs to confirm the benefits achieved from the investments. To ensure that representative information is collected, and that the full extent of variation is captured within the affiliated farmer population in the baseline surveys, it is important to have experienced monitoring specialists to assist in survey design and to provide the principles for analyzing the results. In addition, the specialist will be responsible for establishing performance monitoring of the implementation of subprojects to facilitate reporting to the government and ADB.
