General objective of the activity
The consultants are expected to support the creation of a knowledge hub hosted by the website of the World Federation of DFIs. The website is hosted at https://wfdfi.net/, and the DFI knowledge hub will be subsumed under the current “resources” page. The intended target audience for the website and knowledge hub are development finance institutions that are members of the associations represented in WFDFI, as well as stakeholders working with DFIs.
Specific objectives of the activity
To facilitate knowledge management and sharing, WFDFI has developed a website to function as a knowledge hub for DFIs worldwide; the website is to contain information (research papers, reports, blogs, etc.) on development finance, the SDGs and the Paris Agreement and the role and contributions of DFIs. Also, the knowledge hub aims to shape and advance policy and advocacy positions that impact the development of the banking and finance community worldwide and to improve the DFIs’ capacity to do the same. Potentially, the knowledge hub can also serve as marketplace for DFIs to exchange ideas and identify collaboration opportunities.
The WFDFI website hosts useful resources for DFIs in ACP countries, and the regional association in charge of keeping it up to date has clear guidelines on what kind of content it should propose and how to do it.
The consultants will work in close contact with the representatives of the ICR Facility and the contact person within AADFI as the current Secretariat of the WFDFI. The consultants will make propositions on the kind of content hosted on the website: all final decisions will be made by the AADFI team responsible for updating the site.
Description of the service
The Secretariat of WFDFI has requested support from the ICR Facility in further developing the knowledge hub to accomplish the above-mentioned objectives. This support is to include 3 areas:
The ICR Facility is co-funded by the European Union (EU), the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) under the 11th European Development Fund (EDF), together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the British Council. It is implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), the British Council, Expertise France, and Stichting Nederlandse Ontwikkelingsorganisatie (Netherlands Development Organisation, SNV).
The objective of the Facility is to support ACP partner countries and regional institutions in their structured public-private dialogue processes in order to improve the business environment and investment climate by supporting public-private dialogue processes. The Facility is part of the third pillar of the European Union's External Investment Plan ("Improving the Investment Climate") and contributes to the improvement of the business climate by supporting reforms in a sustainable way and on the basis of public-private dialogue (PPD).
The ICR facilities has three components:
Output Area 2 (OA2) of the Investment Climate Reform Facility focuses on strengthening ACP national and sub-regional Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) and enhancing their capacity in identifying, preparing and implementing investment pipelines. OA2 is implemented by Expertise France and GIZ. Capacity building is to be achieved through:
In the context of Activity 2, the ICR Facility will be providing support to the creation of a DFI knowledge hub hosted by the website of the World Federation of DFIs (WFDFI), which is presently chaired by the African Association of DFIs (AADFI). The WFDFI was established in 1979 to bring DFIs from all over the world together and to exchange knowledge and to promote the SDGs. Current members of WFDFI include the DFI associations in Africa, Asia/Pacific, member countries of the Islamic Dev. Bank, Europe and Latin America. WFDFI is managed by a Secretariat which rotates regularly among the member organisations.
The position is open to consultants with the following qualifications:
