Swisscontact, established in 1959 in Switzerland, is a leading partner organization for the implementation of international development projects. The organization promotes inclusive economic, social, and ecological development to make an effective contribution towards sustainable and widespread prosperity in developing and emerging economies. It strengthens the competencies of people, improving their employability, increases the competitiveness of enterprises, growing their business, and fosters social and economic systems, promoting inclusive development.

Swisscontact, registered as an International Non-Governmental Organization has been operating in Nepal since 1991. Currently, Swisscontact Nepal has six development programmes across all seven provinces.

The Nepal Agricultural Market Development Programme (NAMDP), Phase II (December 2020 to November 2024), also known as Sahaj, operates under a bilateral agreement between the Government of Nepal and the Government of Switzerland. Sahaj is a Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) project, implemented by a consortium of Swisscontact (as the lead agency) and the Center for Environmental and Agricultural Policy Research, Extension and Development (CEAPRED). The programme focuses on the Koshi Province. Sahaj follows a market systems approach, which includes facilitation between market actors, as well as financial and technical support for improved access to services and innovation of agri-business in the Koshi Province. Public-private partnerships between municipalities and private sector actors, as well as an enabling policy framework for services and innovation in the Koshi Province’s agricultural market system, are central elements of Sahaj. The promotion of Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) as well as Federal State Building (FSB) are transversal themes. The Sahaj portfolio will increase demand for smallholders’ produce, including them in value-added supply chains, and building resilience in rural communities through higher employment and income.

For the remaining period of Sahaj’s Phase II, Swisscontact is looking for an experienced and committed team leader.
