In September 2011, the IGAD Drought Disaster Resilience and Sustainability Initiative (IDDRSI) has since 2013 inspired and guided regional and national priorities to counter drought emergencies in East and Horn of Africa countries.

The IDDRSI Strategy (2019-2024) acknowledges that gender issues cut across and are integral to all eight Priority Intervention Areas (PIAs), namely: i) Natural Resources and Environmental Management; ii) Market access, Trade and Financial Services;iii) Enhanced Production and Livelihoods Diversification; iv) Disaster Risk Management; v) Research, Knowledge Management and Technology Transfer; vi) Peace Building, Conflict Prevention and Resolution; vii) Coordination, Institutional Strengthening and Partnerships; and viii) Human Capital, Gender and Social Development.

Against this backdrop, IGAD Secretariat requires the services of a development communication firm with demonstrated experience in gender and development to produce a video documentary on gender and resilience in the Karamoja Cluster, one of eight cross-border programming coordination mechanisms established under the IDDRSI frameworks.

The IGAD have received financing from the Government of Sweden and intends to apply a part of the Production of Video Documentary on Gender and Resilience.


The aim of producing the video documentary is to increase access by IDDRSI stakeholders to essential information and knowledge on gender and resilience for improved equity of programs,


  • Experience in production of development communication materials in the realm of gender and development spanning a minimum of 10 years
  • Experience of carrying out similar tasks in a setting akin to the Karamoja Cluster
  • Demonstrated ability to produce broadcast quality video products
  • Knowledge of gender perspectives in drought/resilience programming would be an added advantage.
  • Prior experience in and/or knowledge of the IGAD region will be an added advantage.
