Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Sector Programme

Adam Smith International Limited

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Sector Programme (KESP) supports the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (GoKP) to deliver equitable access to better quality education across the whole province. Through sector budget support (SBS) and technical assistance (TA) KESP aims to support more children to stay in school for longer while learning more. There are 2.6m out-of-school children (OOSC; 67% are girls) province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in Pakistan. Half of KP’s population are illiterate (disproportionately women) and most drop-out prior to reaching middle and secondary levels. KP suffers from a lack of school spaces at all levels (disproportionately for girls and marginalised groups), and most existing schools are of poor teaching quality. The system does not effectively cater to children with disabilities (CWD): 56% have either dropped out or have never enrolled. Reforms to quality and access initiatives are required, including institutional reforms, private sector engagement, and data-driven decision-making. ASI manages technical assistance for DFID’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Sector Programme (KESP1: 2012-2016; KESP2: 2016-2020; £35m tota[JM1] l). We provide high-quality policy and implementation support to the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (GoKP) Elementary and Secondary Education Department (E&SED), complementing DFID’s Sector Budget Support (Up to £181.2 million (DFID) and £21.3 million (Australia)). We support nine provincial institutions at provincial and local levels to deliver ‘more children in school, staying longer, and learning more’. We are “thought partners”, to the E&SED in the KP development and implementation of the 2015-20 Education Sector Plan. Our support covers four policy groups to transform education service delivery in KP: - More effective teaching and learning; - More and better schools and facilities; - More equitable access to education; - Good governance and management of the education sector. Key achievements and impact: We have deployed innovative, first-time interventions and generated reliable data to support the GoKP in improving teaching quality, access to education, governance and financial management. To improve quality, we supported the merit-based recruitment of 42,500 teachers, enrolled 13,000 new teachers into induction training, and 28,000 teachers into a continuous professional development programme. We have supported improved access – especially for girls and marginalised groups – directly supporting the enrolment of 240,417 children (140,277 girls) through vouchers and community schools’ programmes. During 2017-18, we recorded a record 99% disbursement for the GSP to support girls’ access to public sector schooling (397,864 girls). We supported a student attendance increase from 71% in 2013-14 to 78% in 2017-18 (68% to 75% for girls) and teacher attendance from 81% to 90% in that period.

Solar Nigeria Programme (SNP)

Adam Smith International Limited

The UK Government Department for International Development has implemented the Solar Nigeria Programme to improve the welfare outcomes of the currently underserved communities in Lagos state and Northern Nigeria by making a significant financial contribution towards the solar power electrification of public institutions, such as schools and hospitals. The intervention is expected to, by year 2020, ensure improved welfare outcomes for more than 2.8 million people using domestic solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, with 190,000 school pupils and 4.7 million clinic patients benefiting from public institutions with PV systems, create more than 3000 jobs and ensure greater effectiveness of DFID's other health and educational sector intervention in Nigeria. Solar Nigeria is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), and collaborates with other donors and Nigeria's federal and state governments. The programme works directly with companies that manufacture, install, and finance solar energy systems in Nigeria. The Solar Nigeria Consumer Programme offers financial grants to capable companies that provide solar products, services and/or financing to consumers, to help rapidly expand their capacity to up-scale the market.

Sustainable Energy and Economic Development (SEED) Programme

Adam Smith International Limited

The Sustainable Energy and Economic Development Programme (SEED) will provide £37.5 million over seven years (2018/19 – 2024/2025) to support provincial economic development and sustainable energy in Pakistan. It will support the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), to plan and finance the infrastructure and investment it needs for growth, jobs and prosperity. The programme will also address Pakistan’s energy crisis by providing innovative financial solutions to industry for the adoption of sustainable energy practices. The Supplier will act as the lead technical assistance provider to implement Component 1 ‐ Improved Economic and Urban Planning in KPK Pakistan of SEED programme. The total budget for services to be provided under this contract will be £15 million. Pakistan is growing but is performing worse in terms of economic development than its South Asian and lower middle‐income country peers. Investment is just 16% of GDP compared to 25% in these other groups. Pakistan is urbanising fast – but urbanisation is not delivering higher levels of investment or increasing productivity. Provincial governments’ capacity to plan and manage investments effectively and an unreliable, expensive and unsustainable energy supply are two fundamental constraints to inclusive economic growth. Following a constitutional amendment in 2010, there is an increasing role for subnational governments in delivering economic and urban development. KPK is fragile economically and socially but also presents opportunities. The demands on its resources are also growing, with the recently announced merger with the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). KPK needs early support to integrate itself with Pakistan’s growth centres – Punjab and Sindh – and to benefit from China Pakistan Economic Corridor investments. KPK’s yearly development budget in core economic development sectors alone is larger than DFID’s programme in Pakistan. We can support the KPK Government to meet these challenges by strengthening the systems and institutions responsible for promoting the province’s economic development. Driven by stronger institutions, and a growing economy, KPK will be better able to converge, economically and socially, with Punjab.

Private Sector Development Programme: Market Systems Development – ELAN 1.2

Adam Smith International Limited

The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has huge economic potential. There are 80m hectares of uncultivated arable land, vast mineral resources and over half of Africa’s water. This is countered by a very difficult business environment with very little industry. DRC ranks 184 out of 190 on the World Bank’s Doing Business survey. It performs particularly badly on contract enforcement, getting electricity, paying taxes and trading across borders. Recovery of the private sector in DRC is vital; for job creation and poverty alleviation. DRC is a young and rapidly growing country, with an estimated population of 84m in 2018. Median age has remained steady since 2000 at 16.8 years old. Rapid population growth has implications for inclusive growth as DRC’s GDP growth rate of around 3.7% and the population growth rate of 3.3% per annum resulting in only meagre improvements in per capita income. The youth ‘bulge’ in DRC will require the economy to create around 18 million jobs in the next 15 years. DFID in DRC has been supporting economic development through a Private Sector Development (PSD) Programme in DRC. It is a £120 million programme running from 2015 to 2023. The PSD programme has three distinct components ELAN, ESSOR and DSU. ELAN is the market systems development (MSD) component, worth £50m and has been operating in agriculture, renewable energy, access to finance and transportation. Supporting market actors, ELAN generates market insights, demonstrates innovation and builds capacity to improve the functioning of markets for poor people, leading to over one million poor people realising cumulative income increase of nearly £100 million. ELAN is an adaptive programme with the scope of expanding performing interventions while reducing or closing interventions that do not perform. The current management contract of ELAN will come to an end in July 2019. The ‘bridging’ contract is required to continue the momentum of ELAN and take it to the end of the programme period. This bridging contract, ELAN 1.2, is the subject of this Terms of Reference and will deliver DFID DRC’s market systems development intervention for up to 3 years, from June 2019. DFID has contracted a suitably qualified service provider to deliver the ELAN 1.2 programme.

Strengthening Action Against Corruption (STAAC) in Ghana 2019/20

Adam Smith International Limited

Strengthening Action Against Corruption (STAAC) is a five-year programme that commenced in January 2016. It was designed to address concerns that increasing levels of corruption were a key risk to development progress in Ghana. The programme aims to increase the risks for those engaged in corrupt activities, resulting in a reduction in the incidence of corruption at all levels. The programme seeks to support both the supply and demand sides. It seeks to improve the performance of all aspects of the anti-corruption chain – deterrence, detection and sanctioning, including asset tracing and recovery. It provides support to key agencies, including the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC), Registrar-General’s Department (RGD), Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO), Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Economic and Financial Crime Courts (EFCC), Ghana Audit Service (GAS) among others, to work more effectively together on the identification and handling of corruption risks and cases. On the demand-side, the programme provides technical assistance and financial support to expand work undertaken by think tanks, CSOs and the media to monitor and report on the extent and modalities of corruption in Ghana and Government performance in relation to preventing and addressing corruption. Support to selected civil society partners seek to ensure that interventions are based on robust analysis and strategic vision and are followed through to a logical conclusion. Finally, the programme seeks to increase national and international incentives for the Government of Ghana to take action against corruption, by strengthening dialogue on the subject between the Government and civil society, the private sector and donors.
