Terms of Reference for Impact Evaluation of Private Sector Led (Village Based Advisors) Extension Approach

  1. Problem Statement/Background

The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is a dynamic, African-led partnership that is working to put the smallholder farmer at the centre of economic development in the continent. In the just completed strategy (2017-2021, PIATA 1)) AGRA sought to catalyze an agricultural transformation in eleven (11) key focus countries, namely: Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. AGRA’s overall goal is to catalyze and sustain an Inclusive Agricultural Transformation in Africa to increase incomes and improve food security of at least 30 million smallholder-farming households with a set of targeted catalytic downstream and systemic investments coupled with government engagement made through its alliance of partners.  

Smallholder farmers need access to relevant knowledge across the value chain, the right inputs at the right time for their regions and access to markets in order to improve their productivity and incomes. However, last mile delivery of knowledge, inputs and markets has been a challenge in African agriculture due to weak extension systems that are not able to reach small holder farmers. Public sector driven extension systems in most African countries have been severely weakened since the early 1990s due to weak funding allocation by Governments. Extension worker to farmer rations of 1:3000 or even up to 10000 farmers are common in many sub-Saharan Africa countries. For Extension service delivery to be effective and sustainable a model, in partnership with private sector, should develop incentives for Extension Agents or Advisors to continue to offer last-mile access to inputs, markets, and services, as required by farmers. Experiences showed that extension agents or village-based advisors would continue to provide services as far as they were able to financially benefit from the services (e.g., input delivery to farmers and linking farmers with output markets). Productivity increment at farm and community scales benefited not only farmers but also extension advisors and other service providers. Private sector-led agricultural extension has been emerging as an important complement to public extension services. Its role has increased in recent years with decline of funding and support for public extension systems, and increasingly greater public policy emphasis on private market mechanisms. Private sector-led service providers are seen as more flexible, motivated, cost-conscious, and client-oriented, thus potentially providing more effective services at lower cost and on a sustainable basis.

AGRA is addressing the low extension to farmer ratio by working with the public sector extension workers and implementing partners to identify and train thousands of self-employed Village Based Advisors to provide last mile delivery of knowledge, inputs, and access to markets. Over the past 4 years, AGRA’s partners have identified and trained 33,868 VBAs who have directly reached 10,750,000 farmers with appropriate interventions. VBAs were taught on how to practically teach small-holder farmers to use seeds of improved crop varieties, fertilizer blends, Good Agronomic Practices, postharvest management and marketing and any other needed topics across the specific crop value chains. The recent independent, qualitative evaluation of AGRA’s investment by Mathematica found that VBAs were successful in providing farmers with extension services and access to inputs, leading to increased adoption of Good Agronomic Practices, including improved varieties and inorganic fertilizers, but less successful in linking farmers to markets. 

The Private sector led Extension system working with VBAs has however not yet defined metrics of success at the famer and system levels, and no rigorous, quantitative impact evaluation has been completed.  Hence, despite some positive anecdotal evidence in most AGRA countries, there is no documented evidence to date that the model has positively or sustainably impacted farmers or VBAs themselves. Given the urgent need to produce rigorous evidence for PIATA 2.0, and the desire to continue to improve and refine the Private Sector Led Extension System with VBAs as a result of this evidence, there is a strong need for a rigorous impact evaluation that includes review and refinement of the Theory of Change (ToC) linking the VBA program to inclusive agricultural transformation, and outcome and impact metrics and results at the farmer (adoption, productivity, income, resilience) and system levels. To enhance efficiency of last mile delivery of services by VBAs there are efforts to digitalize VBAs in Mozambique. This study will assess the factors and/or other requirements needed (including infrastructure, incentives, business models etc) for a functional VBA digitalized last mile delivery system.

For AGRA and partners to institutionalize AGRA’s private sector-led Extension Approach as an effectives model of delivery at scale, there is a need for a detailed, replicated, and quantitative study to evaluate the impact of VBAs on productivity, profitability and resilience of target farmers compared to those who did not receive their services. It is also critical to assess the effects of various external drivers on the performance and viability of the VBA model under differing farming systems.  The outcomes of the study will provide evidence to inform expanded investment by African governments and donors but also to attract new investors, beyond the current main donors of AGRA (BMGF, USAID), in the extension systems of SSA. For instance, IKEA foundation has funded two consecutive grants to understand how VBAs could be employed to promote knowledge intensive regenerative practices to scale and are keen to expand their engagement. BMZ-KfW is keenly supporting the promotion of agroecological practices at scale in West Africa and are looking for evidence on the impact of VBAs in reaching out to more communities.

  1. Objectives of the assignment

The Goal of this Assignment to generate evidence which will be used to enhance the extension capacity of AGRA target countries through rigorously evaluating AGRA’s Private Sector-led approach working with VBAs at the farmer and system levels and derive context- specific learnings of the approach

This assignment proposes to achieve three intertwined objectives, namely: 

  1. To document the best practices of VBAs, drivers of success, sources of variability in success of VBAs and externalities influencing performance of VBAs 
  2. To generate rigorous evidence on the impact the VBA approach has had on system and farmer-level outcomes, including productivity, income, and resilience of male and female farmers in two countries (Kenya and Mozambique). 
  3. To identify and prioritize major external and internal variables affecting the performance and efficiency of the VBAs

The results of this assignment will be critical for programming the Private Sector-led Extension Village Based Advisors (VBA) model to impact more farmers in PIATA 2.0.

Key Principles of the Assignment

  • Catalytic – study to identify the catalytic role of AGRA along all the sub-systems
  • Efficiency – aim to identify the paths-of-least-resistance to the change we seek, successful models (cost, partnerships, time)
  • Partnerships – identify players who have developed competencies in the various models we select and seek to support those entities. AGRA has initiated parallel investments and studies which should enrich the implementation of this assignment.
  • Performance metrics – seek to identify comparable KPIs along the impact pathways for which we will measure progress
  • Assumptions – clearly articulate the necessary assumptions for each pillar/pathway and provide an assessment of risk
  • Inclusivity and sustainability – aim to identify models that leverage digital tools to reach more people, that benefits women and youth and that are climate friendly
  • Collaboration/Engagement – Ensure regular engagements with AGRA and BMGF expert teams in every process of the assignment. Draw from AGRAs existing knowledge resource including work done 60 decibel and other partners in West Africa among others
  1. Scope of work

This assignment falls under the Sustainable Farming Workstream of AGRA and will contribute to the improvement and scale up of the Private Sector-led Public Sector Enabled Extension approach working with VBAs for farmer improved productivity and incomes.  The assignment will be conducted in 

  • Phase 1: Qualitative evaluation focusing on Kenya, Mozambique, and Tanzania
  • Phase 2: Quantitative impact evaluation focusing on Kenya and Mozambique. 

Evaluation questions

Phase 1: Qualitative evaluation

  1. What best practices and innovations has the VBA model brought to the system not previously there before?
  2. What factors contribute to make the VBAs (some of whom are agrodealers, aggregators, agents of service providers etc) successful in her role? Incentives for success? What are the incentives / disincentives to continue?
  3. What are the key differences between male vs. female VBAs in their activities? e.g., in terms of farmer reach (gender disaggregated); business approach / difference in participation in business; ability to reach out to public extension workers for issues like updated content, regular trainings, etc.
  4. What are the externalities, e.g., from govt, project, and supply side influencing performance of VBAs (male and female)? How can challenges / negative aspects / disincentives be mitigated? E.g., regarding content, training (including digital), use of farmer-facing channels, etc.
  5. From an institutional perspective, what strategies can sustain private sector-led extension (i.e., the VBA model) to serve farmers?
  6. How has digitalization enhanced efficiency of VBA engagements with farmers and other service providers, last mile delivery of services?
  7. What is required to ensure large scale digitalization of VBA  in the 3 countries ?

Phase 2: Quantitative impact evaluation

  1. What impact has the VBA approach had on farmer-level outcomes including productivity, income/profitability, resilience, food security?
  2. What impact has the VBA approach had on system level outcomes, including frequency and quality of extension services? 
  3. What has been the result of the VBA intervention in terms of greater food security, better nutrition, or improved profitability for different groups of extension clients?
  4. What is the cost to establish VBA model? How does that compare to alternatives?
  5. What is the ROI or cost-benefit of the model?
  6. What positive and negative spill overs have occurred due to VBA model? e.g., has the intervention had unintended negative impacts on the environment, on the workload of women, or increased the risks that smallholders face?
  7. What are the differential effects of the VBA model across countries? What are the differences and factors of success per country?
  8. How has digitalization enhanced efficiency of VBA engagements with farmers and other service providers, last mile delivery of services to date ?

Description of proposed activities for the assignment period

The qualitative study to document the best practices of VBAs, drivers of success, and externalities influencing performance of VBAs will be completed in the Bridge year (2022), however the quantitative evaluation of  impact of VBAs on increasing productivity and incomes of farmers study will go beyond the Bridge grant period, to capture at least two farming seasons We expect the qualitative work to inform the quantitative study, therefore activities will be sequences across the assignment period. 

Phase 1: Qualitative Study (Estimated period 7 months) – Map and capture best extension practices 

In each of the three target countries (Kenya, Mozambique, and Tanzania):

  1. Map and review VBA-led extension approaches in our target countries. Learn what is working and not working in each country, and filter lessons and integrate best practices coming from the various VBA arrangements in PIATA 2.0 
  2. Identify drivers and conditions for success for the VBA-led extension models. This will involve documentation of the conditions for success, including education levels, age groups, gender, past experiences, access to finances, motivations, characteristics among others.   
  3. Make recommendations for improvement of AGRA’s private sector-led extension strategy in each Country. 

Phase 2: Quantitative Impact Evaluation (Estimated period 24 months) – Design and implement a rigorous, gold standard,  evaluation to measure farmer and system level impacts

In two representative countries (Kenya and Mozambique): 

  1. Devise a methodology that answers the core research questions and allows for the credible attribution of causal impacts on outcomes of interest at the farm and system levels. 
  2. Design a sampling strategy, ensuring that data will be collected among key sub-populations (including female SSPs) and that the evaluation will be powered to pick up differential impacts among sub-populations.  
  3. Work with AGRA, BMGF and local authorities on sampling strategy, including identification of representative farming systems and villages, defining appropriate counterfactual to understand effects of the VBA extension approach compared to traditional extension.  In Mozambique, there is an opportunity to add a treatment arm to a ‘digitized VBA’ approach establishing the basics needed to digitize VBAs and make efficient the last mile delivery of service to farmers  
  4. Select appropriate protocols for measuring outcomes and impacts of VBA approach. 
  5. Define appropriate tools using devised method in i above to evaluate  impact of the VBA model on advisory systems in the two countries, including benefits to the VBA workers themselves, e.g., financial, and other benefits, and overall system outcomes. 
  6. Design, implement, and analyze data collection instruments, including survey and qualitative instruments, in accordance with established good practices. 
  7. Conduct baseline and follow up surveys on input delivery, input use, access to finance, production, market access, profitability, and resilience of farms and communities, as well as impacts on women farmers, as a result of VBA engagement.
  8. Collect data on determinant factors and drivers affecting performance and efficiency of VBAs. 
  9. Collect and analyze additional data as needed, such as detailed biophysical, agronomic and market data of the target communities that would allow quantifying cost-benefit, crop productivity and income of both farmers and VBAs. 
  10. Use appropriate statistical tools to assess VBA’s performance and efficiency, and to identify major determinants of success and performance.  
  11. Develop detailed matrix and indicators for assessing performance of VBAs
