The Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA), supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), is pleased to announce a call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to undertake Participatory Action Research on African Foods, Food Security, and Food Systems. This research is part of the “Transforming the African Food System to Sustainability (TAFS) – My Food is African Project,” aiming to inspire African citizens to demand and consume healthy and culturally appropriate food supported by favorable policies by 2026. We seek proposals from qualified individuals or firms with proven experience in participatory action research, tool development, and data collection and analysis, with a strong understanding of African food systems and cultural contexts.

The objectives of this research include designing a participatory community data collection tool to capture the diversity of African foods, conducting field studies using this tool, and developing comprehensive reports, illustrations, and short videos. These outputs will highlight and promote African food systems and address food and malnutrition challenges faced by the continent. Key deliverables include an inception report, data collection tools, draft and final reports, graphic illustrations, short videos, and policy briefs. The consultancy is expected to be completed within four months from the contract signing date.

Interested candidates are invited to submit a letter expressing interest (1-2 pages), a short technical proposal (2-4 pages) outlining the understanding of the assignment, methodology, timeline, and budget, along with a general profile of the firm or individual(s), evidence of previous work done, and CV(s). Proposals should be sent via email to by 5:00 pm (East Africa Time) on Sunday, July 28, 2024, with the subject line “AFSA-Action Research.”

For further information about the EOI, please refer to the attached Terms of Reference (TOR). If you have any additional queries or need further clarification, please contact Charles Mulozi at

We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest and collaborating to advance sustainable African food systems.
