    Banyan Global is an international development consulting firm with offices based in Washington, DC and abroad. Banyan Global operates seamlessly within six practice areas: health, finance and investment, enterprise development, gender, youth, and evaluation and learning.


    USAID/Bangladesh will be hiring Banyan Global to conduct a Gender Assessment to inform USAID/Bangladesh’s 2019-2024 Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS). It will concentrate on democracy and governance, global health and education, agriculture and the environment. The strategy will place a specific emphasis on the Rohingya refugee crisis.  


    Banyan Global is hiring an International Team Leader (consultant) to carry out the USAID/Bangladesh Gender Assessment, which will in turn inform the mission’s 2019-2024 CDCS. The consultant will work with a national gender expert to carry out a literature review in late October 2018, and will travel to Bangladesh for 3-4 weeks to conduct the field work for the Gender Assessment in November 2018. The consultant will prepare the draft and final Gender Assessment Reports in December 2018 and January 2019 respectively.
