Consultant in PR and Social Media Support to the Economic Policy Research Network Rwanda (EPRN)jobs in Rwanda



Terms of Reference for the Consultancy
“PR and social media support to the Economic Policy Research Network Rwanda (EPRN)”
Context
The implementation of the Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy (EDPRS II) represents the current framework and main point of reference for Rwandan Government Policy. Accelerating economic g
rowth and continuing progress made prior in poverty reduction stand at the forefront of this strategy. Macroeconomic stability is a prerequisite for a dynamic and broad-based economic growth, but sustainable government fiscal policy-making and the financing and management of public and private investment are also important tools for poverty reduction. This applies in particular to the quality of macroeconomic analyses and their translation into financial and economic planning policies under the purview of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MINECOFIN).
The Program Macroeconomic Advice
The project “Macroeconomic Advice for Poverty Reductionin Rwanda” functions via the means of three interlinked areas of action. In Intervention area 1 the project supports the economic departments of the Ministries, thereby the expertise of staff to improve economics and investment policy analyses, improve the economic models and systemise operational procedures. In Intervention area 2 advisory services will be provided to MINECOFIN introducing new processes of investment planning and increasing the efficiency of existing processes. Intervention area 3 supports MINECOFIN to exchange information with and coordinate better with other relevant actors concerned with Rwandan economic and investment policy. These stakeholders include the Central Bank (BNR), the National Institute of Statistics (NISR), representatives of the private sector and civil society, the research network EPRN and participating Rwandan universities. These Rwandan institutions should be supported by means of cooperation with corresponding international partners, especially German Universities and research institutions. For this the program is cooperating with an international research consortium, too.
Background of EPRN
The Economic Policy Research Network (EPRN) is an economic policy research platform in Rwanda bringing together key economic management institutions, individuals and organisations active in economic policy research and analysis to create a pool community for economic policy researchers through organising trainings, research coaching and mentorship, work place placements, learning tours and joint research projects to support provide evidence for economic policy formulation and policy research development. EPRN therefore responds to economic policy gaps created mainly by lack of quality and informative research and the challenge of human capacity in terms of limited numbers of economic researchers and active involvement.
The objective of EPRN is to provide necessary skills and professional training both short-term and long-term to close the capacity gaps and to strengthen economic policy research and analysis in Rwanda.
