Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership Background
The Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP, www.cgepartnership.com), one of 11 initiatives at the Clinton Foundation, is pioneering an innovative approach to poverty alleviation. We are impact entrepreneurs. We create new enterprises by addressing existing market gaps in developing countries distribution or supply chains. Our enterprises provide underserved communities access to market, jobs, and training by incorporating individuals into one of three market-driven models Inclusive Distribution enterprises, Supply Chain enterprises, and Vocational Training enterprises.
Our unique approach is based on the mass replication of high impact, self-sustaining enterprise models in partnership with multinational corporations. Through these models, CGEP seeks to help millions of people work themselves out of poverty. We manage a portfolio of enterprises in Latin America and the Caribbean, and are quickly expanding into Africa and Asia.
Supply Chain Enterprise Model Background
There are an estimated 500 million small farmers in the world living in poverty, operating at levels of productivity that are significantly below their potential, and unable to directly access formal, high value markets for their produce. Multinational corporations and large local food retailers are generally unwilling to extend their procurement systems and supply chains to deal directly with numerous small farmers due to the associated risks and operational complexity, unreliability, and inconsistent, substandard produce.
CGEP s supply chain enterprises provide sustainable access to high value markets.by removing all the barriers that small farmers typically face. We set up depots and collection centers around clusters of small farmers and provide them with fertilizer, seeds, and other inputs at (scale leveraged) cost. The input costs are deducted from the payments they receive for their produce. This gets them out of their working capital trap. We train them in best agricultural practices and buy their produce. We aggregate this into quality controlled, reliable supply chains for large purchases under contract. We aim to double or triple small farmer yield and income.
CGEP is currently running a soybean and maize supply chain enterprise pilot in C te d Ivoire.
The expert agronomist will assist CGEP development, pilot and enterprise teams with targeted review, analysis and recommendations of input packages and best practices for smallholder production for multiple crops in several African countries. This position is designed to be an assignment-based role with targeted work and deliverables completed by the expert agronomist based on specific needs in enterprises at various phases of enterprise development, piloting and scaling. The first assignment will include a comprehensive review of best practices and proposed input packages for a soybean and maize pilot currently underway in central and northern C te d Ivoire.
Future assignments with this enterprise and other enterprises at various stages of development are likely if performance on initial contract is satisfactory and consultant has sufficient experience with other target crops.
The initial assignment will target CGEP s soybean and maize pilot in C te d Ivoire over the coming six months. CGEP envisions two in-country evaluation visits consisting of approximately one week of work, each for an initial review during/following planting and a follow up review following harvest. CGEP expects similar time required out of country for desk research and drafting of final deliverables. The following provides details on required deliverables for this assignment:
