Duty Station : Mrauk U, Rakhine State
Report to : Senior Monitoring and Evaluation Officer
Number of Opening(s) : 1
Mercy Corps was awarded a grant from the Livelihoods and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) for a 3-year programme, entitled Making Vegetable Markets Work for small-holders in Shan and Rakhine states (MVMW), that aims to tackle six key constraints for increased farmer productivity within the market system: inputs, financial services, information, off season production technology, post-harvest production options, and government extension.
The program will also create and/or strengthen market linkages between farmers and buyers. Together these changes will lead to increased quality, quantity and value of production, ultimately contributing to improved livelihoods for vegetable farmers. Efforts in policy advocacy and learning will leverage the results further by positively influencing the development debate in Myanmar. To ensure needed market drivers are present, the programme will facilitate the entry of new actors into rural markets by helping them overcome perceived barriers to entry and reducing their risks, while also advising them on inclusive and conflict-sensitive business models in target communities. Agreements will be brokered with different private sector actors, as well as between private and public stakeholders, to help achieve mutual goals that can result in improved services and products available to the poor. Based on market development theory and experience, interventions will vary with each opportunity identified and be as dynamic as the market itself.
GENERAL POSITION SUMMARY:
The M&E Officer will assist in the management of MVMW’s results measurement database, with technical oversight from the M&E Advisor and M&E Coordinator. This will include training and mentoring to other field team members to ensure quality data collection, checks on accuracy and quality of data collected as it is added to the database, and communicating daily with Yangon-based managers and M&E team members. As new data collection tools and new staff are added to the program, the M&E Officer will lead field M&E training efforts. Ensuring that data collection, analysis and reporting is on schedule as planned is also an important role of the M&E Officer. The M&E Officer will participate in weekly Mrauk U team meetings and report on all M&E related updates. Additionally, the M&E Officer will play a role in reporting to management, the program team, private-sector and civil society partners, and to the communities where we work.
