Project Description:

USAID’s Pakistan Agricultural Technology Transfer Activity (PATTA) is supporting supply side partners (SSPs) to integrate and mainstream systematic social and behavior change (SBC) programming, in order for the SSPs to advance their engagement with both demand side partners (DSPs) and local farmers. This SBC programming is aimed at enabling SSPs to overcome knowledge and practice barriers that subsequently hinder the productive use of agricultural technologies by local farmers. PATTA is accordingly providing SSPs technical assistance to develop and deliver tools and interventions, so that SSPs are able to effectively develop and deliver SBC programming, from planning to implementation to evaluation. These tools and interventions will specifically target:

  1. The knowledge and practice gaps specifically identified in PATTA’s Rapid Analysis on SBC Programming (2018); and
  1. The productive technologies and associated related best practices identified in PATTA’s Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) Report (2018).

The tools and interventions will collectively constitute PATTA’s Social and Behavior Change (SBC) Toolkit for SSPs, providing step-by-step, technology-specific support to SSPs to integrate SBC into their existing business development, sales and marketing engagements, e.g. demos, expos or trainings etc.

Objectives of the Technical Assistance:

The objective of the assignment is to creatively assist PATTA in developing and implementing SBC Toolkit to enable SSPs to more effectively and systematically develop and deliver relevant SBC programming so that they are able to improve the uptake of their agricultural technologies. The toolkit will provide a step-by-step approach to help SSPs integrate SBC into an existing business development, sales and marketing strategies or plans.
