To respond to a growing number, intensity, and duration of international crisis worldwide the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is gradually expanding the number and scope of projects implemented through the KfW Development Bank (KfW) in fragile settings and countries of origin and transit of refugees. To mobilize consultants’ expertise more easily in the future and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of required expert input for the preparation of upcoming projects the KfW engaged a Panel of Pre-qualified Consultants, including the m4h-lead Consortium of 5 specialist international development consulting companies (The Consortium includes Luvent Consulting GmbH, SWECO GmbH, Groupe Cayambe SARL, HYDROPHIL GmbH and management4health GmbH).

Within the scope of the Framework Contract- Fragile Context, our role will be to respond rapidly with adequate expertise of international and national experts to future calls for services in fragile states. These services will include Pre-feasibility Studies, Services related to Environmental and Social Safeguards and Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD), Analysis of the Project Executing Agency (PEA), Peace and Conflict Analysis (PCA), Analysis of Target Groups and Project Affected People in 6 target sectors: water, energy, transport, health, education, peacebuilding/crisis prevention/ promotion of social coherence.

It is against this background that we seek qualified national and international consultants as Senior Experts to collaborate with us on upcoming Peace and Conflict Analysis (PCA) in selected fragile context.


The PCA will ensure that KfW planned interventions are tailored to the specific contexts and people targeted or otherwise affected by the interventions. PCA will be the basis for ensuring that projects are context-sensitive, maximizing development potentials and minimizing unintended negative impacts in the context of fragility and conflict (“Do-No-Harm”-principle). The task of the Senior Expert will be to research and develop the analysis according to KfW standards, especially but not limited to:
