2.5 Detaillierter Aufgabenbeschrieb
International backstopping consultant(s) will be included in the project setup in order to support SDC and the Facilitating Entity (FE) for the horticulture sector in Kosovo in several methodical matters relating to the establishment of such entity. The mandate of the international backstopper(s) has a triple purpose:

a) Support and advise SDC in the set up and design phase of the FE before its establishment as well as in steering it during the implementation phase;

b) Provide backstopping services to the FE: coach, mentor and advise the local implementing partner who will run the FE in terms of methodological processes, ensuring transfer of knowledge and access to best practices on market facilitation approaches. The backstopper(s) will have to make sure that the local partner organization progressively gains sufficient knowledge, experience and other important skills that enable it to possibly continue to run the FE under no or minimal supervision after the end of the backstopping mandate in December 2012.

c) Provide support to both SDC and FE in the areas of strategic steering, project management and monitoring.

Based on the results of preliminary assessments, it can be expected that the main focus of backstopping's support will lie on methodological issues related to a feasible and pragmatic way of implementing a market facilitation approach in the context of Kosovo.

The international backstopper(s) shall accomplish the following tasks, amongst others:

1) FE planning and design phase (October- December 2010):
i) Organise an information event (around end of October 2010) for all local organisations which are candidate for implementing the FE (based on a pre-selection carried out by SDC) in order to ensure that the pre-selected organizations are briefed and trained in a way that they are able to submit valid proposals for implementing the FE;
ii) Provide support for the preparation of the Terms of Reference for the FE;
iii) Support SDC in defining a meaningful division of tasks between HPK's Consolidation Component and the FE;
iv) Prepare selection criteria and support SDC in selecting the best suitable organisation (among the ones that submit proposals) for implementing the FE.

2) FE implementation phase (January 2011 - December 2012):
2.1) Backstopping:
v) Provide clear guidance and methodological support (through training, coaching, knowledge transfer, provision of best practices from other countries etc.) to the local partner organization which will be selected to implement the FE;
vi) Provide advice, support and serve as "knowledge hub" for the Swiss Cooperation Office in Kosovo in the area of market facilitation.

2.2) Steering and monitoring:
vii) Support the FE in drafting strategic documents before they are submitted to SDC and MFAD, including work plans, budget, indicators (incl. a realistic definition of expected outcomes and outputs to be achieved by the end of 2012) and monitoring system;
viii) Provide general support to SDC in the area of strategic steering of the project, including participation to steering committee meetings.

All these tasks shall be realised in cooperation with the partner organization selected for implementing the FE and SDC.
