Individual Consultant – Case Writer Job Vacancy

United Nations Development Programme
Individual Consultant – Case Writer

Recruitment of Individual Consultant – Case Writer: 6 Weeks Assignment; 30 Consultancy Days.

The Business Call to Action (BCtA) is a global corporate leadership platform, with over 80 member companies that are incorporating inclusive business approaches in their operations to help advance the MDGs.

In October 2013, BCtA brought together a small group of key local stakeholders to initiate the discussion on the role of inclusive business and barriers to successful inclusive
businesses connected to the health sector in Kenya.
In order to ensure a more targeted discussion, the issue of access to ORS and Zinc for the treatment of pediatric diarrhea was addressed, providing an example of supply chains of health products.

The Business Call to Action believes that inclusive businesses (social businesses) can play an important role in reaching low income populations with health knowledge, services and products.

In order for these businesses to be successful and achieve scale of social impact, an enabling ecosystem must exist which requires the support of local government agencies, multilaterals, NGOs, and the private sector.

During the discussion, it was clear that this group of stakeholders had successfully navigated how to create and sustain this type of enabling ecosystem.

Several themes and key success factors were discussed, and it was agreed that it could be very helpful for other projects if the successes of this initiative could be clearly documented in the form of a case study.

The case study should be focused on how the public private partnership was conceived, designed, and implemented with descriptions of the incentives necessary for each party.

Objective: Produce (identify, analyse, and write up) a case study and an accompanying power point presentation based on the meeting notes and further interviews (7 to 10) with key stakeholders.
