Consultant/ Service Contract on SEAS Market Scan in Rayong

 

  1. Introduction

Plan International is currently implementing the Stopping Exploitation through Accessible Services (SEAS of Change) project through the support of Plan International Sweden, Plan International USA, Plan International Finland, Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), Kesko Corporation and The Richard and Helen DeVos Foundation.

SEAS of Change looks at critical entry points along the fishing supply chain to develop a multi-pronged approach to fortify it against exploitation and abuse. It envisions a fishing industry that is free from hazardous exploitative child labor and offers decent work opportunities for all, particularly migrant populations.

Following a ‘net-to-napkin’ approach, interventions occur from source communities in Cambodia and destination communities in Thailand, to corporate engagements with retailers in consumer countries like Sweden and Finland, intermediary buyers, suppliers and brokers to promote transparency and accountability down the supply chain. Project activities aim to improve outcomes in education, livelihood, social protection and supply chain engagement.

Due to the wide scope of the project, SEAS involves Plan International Thailand, Plan International Cambodia, Plan International Asia Regional Office, Plan International Finland and Plan International Sweden.

  1. Background

 

To improve outcomes in livelihood, Plan International intends to offer alternative decent work opportunities to young migrants, especially young parents and young women, in the project’s target communities in Rayong and Trat.

 

Plan International envisions a market scan research to be conducted to facilitate a thorough understanding of the opportunities, gaps and challenges in the local market, prevailing gender dynamics and ICT trends, as well as personal preferences of various targeted beneficiaries. The findings from this research is expected to inform the design and delivery of the project’s livelihood interventions in Thailand.

 

The market scan is a 7-step methodology that has been developed into an online tool to help staff and other practitioners better understand the market trends, youth preferences, and opportunities in targeted areas. The online tool has been widely promoted within Plan International to complement the design and implementation of youth employment/livelihood programs.

 

III. Objectives of the Position:
