(ACEA) PROJECT

 

  • Period of Performance:  From  June 15th 2021 To October 15th 2021
  • Expected Level of Effort:  30 Days
  • Place of Performance: Tunis, Tunisia, with field trips to ± 3 governorates.

Program Background

ACEA Tunisia (Action Collaborative pour les Exportations Artisanales, or “Collaborative Action for the Export of Handicraft Products”) is a 5-year project funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented by FHI 360. Its goal is to help artisans, especially those who are socially or geographically marginalized, to commercialize their products, and hence promote greater social and economic equity. Where possible, the project places a special emphasis on assisting artisans to export.

This project is helping to empower artisans and local communities by guiding and advising them using a cluster approach. Members of the Cluster (beneficiaries) meet in workshops and work in groups to learn and share various skills, in conjunction with relevant support entities and technical experts. To date, ACEA has launched cluster development activities in two sectors in Tunisia: essential oils and related natural products (Northwest Tunisia), olive wood kitchenware and tableware (in Sfax and Sidi Bou Zid) and carpets in Dekhilet Toujen Gabes.

The ACEA project will be giving support to two additional handicraft value chains.

ACEA is seeking an individual consultant to assist with the research and mapping of Two additional selected sectors:

  • Carpets of Belkhir (Gafsa)
  • Traditional Pottery of Sers (El Kef) and Barrama (Seliana)

Objective of Consultancy

This mapping will be used as a support to identify the relevant actors and stakeholders in the value chains, illustrate the complexities of the value chains, understand the nature of relationships between the different market players, the reasons for constraints that are preventing value chains from achieving the desired outcomes, and to identify the alternative opportunities for income and employment creation. Based on these findings, ACEA project will be formulating appropriate intervention and value chain development strategies.
