    Independent Review of ARC Contingency Planning Processes and Design and Implementation of a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework

    Kimetrica conducted an independent review of the African Risk Capacity (ARC) contingency planning process and provided strategic recommendations to strengthen the its M&E system. A second consultancy was commissioned to implement the recommendations provided to ARC. The services performed included the provision of advisory services on ARC's log frame, and the design and implementation of a process audit and spot checks for the monitoring of ARC's first pay-outs in Mauritania, Niger and Senegal. In addition, Kimetrica developed training materials on ARC contingency planning and how to conduct process audits and spot checks for the monitoring of future payouts.

    International Household Survey Network Data Clinics

    The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) provides support to national governments in survey design, data management and data analysis. As part of this effort, Kimetrica provided technical assistance to government statistics offices through capacity development in conducting national surveys, managing data, data analysis and dissemination. Kimetrica's technical trainers provided regional and national level training to over 20 countries in Africa and Asia on comprehensive micro-data evaluation, data processing systems, survey methods, analysis, indicator selection and public dissemination policy. The project increased the ability of national statistics bureaus to manage national surveys, process data and use data for policy and economic development decision-making.

    Increasing Smallholder Production through Structured Demand in TB, HIV/AIDS Treatment and OVC Programmes: Feasibility and Impact Analysis

    With the significant expansion of HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC programmes in Africa, there is both an urgent need to meet the demand for expanding programmes and, at the same time, address the increased food security and nutritional needs of programme clients. Under a contract with UNAIDS, Kimetrica conducted a study on the feasibility and potential impact on smallholder incomes of market opportunities for supplying food to support antiretroviral therapy (ART) and Tuberculosis (TB) treatment programmes and Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) services in Africa. Kimetrica conducted case studies in six African countries to gain insight and practical knowledge of the potential benefits, costs, risks and constraints of investing in smallholder supply chains for donor-funded health and social protection programmes. In addition, Kimetrica's staff mapped potential partners in 20 African countries, ranging from NGOs to farmer groups to health facilities that can manage procurement of food between small farmers and social protection programmes. The study’s findings were used to develop programmes to support smallholder production and to provide nutritional support to HIV/AIDS, TB and OVC beneficiaries.
