The day a grenade exploded at my feet should have scared   me. Instead, it made me more determined. One life lost cannot erase the memory of 40,000 who per-ished during the dictatorship of president Hissene Habre in Chad. Whether it was me or someone else, I knew that one day those who were stolen from their families, tortured and beaten, would see justice.

From 1982 until 1990, Habre ruled my country of birth, Chad, after coming to power through a military coup. Through fear and intim-idation, assisted by his secret police, the Documentation and Security Directorate (DDS), he rounded up thousands of citi-zens, many of whom were then killed or "disappeared," until he was deposed by another coup and exiled to Senegal. It would take nearly 30 years be-fore he was brought to trial.

Representatives from leading civil society organizations, professional associations, governments, African Union (AU), academia, and key media leaders in West Africa are scheduled to participate in a two-day consultation on the Malabo Protocol in Dakar from 2-3 May, 2017.

The Malabo Protocol or the “Protocol on Amendments to the Protocol on the Statute of the African Court of Justice and Human Rights” was adopted by AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, in June 2014.

The Protocol extends the jurisdiction of the yet to be established African Court of Justice and Human Rights (ACJHR) to try crimes under international law and transnational crimes, meaning that, if and when the new court becomes operational, the international criminal law section of the court will serve as an African regional criminal court, operating in a manner akin to the International Criminal Court (ICC) but within a narrowly defined geographical scope, and over an expanded list of crimes.

The two-day consultation, which is on the theme “Understanding the Malabo Protocol: The potential, the pitfalls and the way forward”, is organized by Amnesty International, IHRDA, RADDHO, and TrustAfrica.

The CAADP Non-State-Actors Coalition (CNC) in collaboration with TrustAfrica, is currently accepting applications from suitable consultant(s) to carry out a study on Assessing private sector investments and opportunities for improved smallholder agriculture policies in Africa.” The project seeks to identify knowledge gaps on public and private sector investments in Africa within the context of CAADP goals at the national and continental levels. It specifically aims to address the lack of in-depth research, data and analysis on the patterns, dynamics, actors, channels, magnitude, and development impacts of the different modes of private sector investments on smallholder farmers, local investment and value chains development. The research will identify the opportunities of private sector investments to support smallholder farming, including women and youth. This will contribute to expand the evidence base to inform non-state actors’ policy advocacy action in demanding inclusive and equitable investments in African smallholder agriculture.

Purpose of the Terms of Reference

The purpose of this TOR is to seek proposals from suitable organizations, individuals and/or consortia to undertake research to assess the extent, impact and opportunities of private sector investments for smallholders, especially, the national processes championed by the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition in Africa (NAFSN), with the aim of strengthening local private sector and how NSAs can engage private sector investments to ensure smallholder inclusion.
