The UNDP-implemented regional project “Aid for Trade for Central Asia” is designed in line with Finland’s Development Policy programme and UNDP’s development vision. It promotes inclusive, green economic growth through promoting trade and enhancing national competitiveness and sustainable development, by helping poor and vulnerable communities to share in the gains from trade.
The AFT project in phase IV will focus on supporting Central Asian countries in promoting inclusive and sustainable growth patterns in rural areas and within green productive sectors. The project will work on the macro (policy), meso (trade support institutions) and micro (SMEs & producers) levels ensuring that interventions at the three levels are mutually supportive to ensure a focused impact level. Two cross-cutting themes will be gender equality and environmental sustainability.
Building on the extensive experience, lessons learned and results from previous phases, the AFT project will work on promoting inclusive and sustainable pathways through the promotion of productive capacities and increasing trade through the identification of niche products, which can contribute to greening local production, while also increasing the quality and quantity of jobs, especially for women and young people living in rural areas.
In Tajikistan, the project will focus on the following three levels:
The Trade support institutions (TSIs) play a vital role in ensuring the competitiveness of the private sector. Through their advisory services to SMEs, as well as trainings, they share the latest information regarding business management practices as well as export requirements. TSIs can also play an important role in value chain management and technological upgrades, therefore the AFT project will work with TSIs to improve their services providing to the private sector.
In 2018, the AFT project has conducted a survey of the existing needs of Trade support institutions, as well as a permanent assessment of their needs in training topics. The survey shown that one of the many problems which mainly faced by TSIs is lack of qualified specialists/experts to provide qualified consulting services to the private sector.
Based on needs assessment, among of many priorities and needs for capacity building of TSIs, the issues related to the value chains aspects, green products, export, quality standards, marketing issues and others have been defined. Among of topics stated by TSIs, an introduction of bio/organic standards at SMEs have been stated as one of the most important and necessary topics which are in need by enterprises for further promotion of their products to the external markets.
Moreover, the AFT project currently working on promotion of Tajik products to EU countries and during negotiations with potential buyers/retailers , it was revealed, that many buyers/retailers in EU are interesting in bio/organic products, which has an EU certificate. The EU Green Leaf (EU Regulation EEC No. 834/2007 of Organic Production) certificate considered by EU buyers as one of the most necessary certificates and accepted by many EU buyers. And having the bio/organic certificates for products, gives the big opportunities to the Tajik products to export to EU countries.
The sufficient capacity of TSIs is considered as a one of the most important priority, which has a direct impact to sustainability of trade support institutions. It is assumed, that support to TSIs on above-mentioned areas will improve their capacity and have a long-term positive impact in provision of consulting services to SMEs, which in turn also will improve the management of SMEs and competitiveness of Tajik products.
The implementation of this sub-project will also possibly contribute to the SDGs - 8.1.1, 9.3.1, 17.11.1, like:
To assist in the implementation of these priorities, the UNDP, in the framework of Aid for Trade project, intends to hire an International Consultant to conduct a training on the aspects relating on introduction of EU Regulation EEC No. 834/2007 of Organic Production, mainly known as an EU Green Leaf standard at SMEs to the several selected TSIs.
More specifically, this Terms of Reference relates to the implementation of sub-project under the Sub-Output 1.2. Trade support institutions that provide efficient services to the private sector; and Activity 1.2.1. Capacity building measures for TSIs to improve and establish new services, including special for women entrepreneurs.
