CARE International (CI) is a global confederation of twenty independent organizations working together, in 100 countries around the world, to fight poverty, respond to humanitarian emergencies and advocate for policy change to improve the lives of the poorest and most vulnerable communities, reaching more than 122 million people.
At the core of the confederation is a Secretariat, which provides coordination and support to its Members in the areas of governance, strategic planning, communications, membership development and accountability, advocacy, fundraising, humanitarian response, and program development. In addition, the Secretariat represents the CARE confederation at the United Nations and the European Union.
CI is governed by a representative Council, made up of delegates from its membership as well as other contributing participants, and by a CI Supervisory Board which acts independently from Member interests and directly oversees the performance of the CI Secretariat. CI is registered in Switzerland, in Belgium and in the UK as an Association and regulated by respective Statutes in each country. The CI Council is supported by a Governance and Nominations Committee (GNC), a standing committee primarily responsible for overseeing governance principles, structures, processes and regulations including the Statutes. The CI Secretariat is responsible for convening and supporting global governance bodies.
CI is currently developing its 2030 direction, which will include impact targets for the next decade, the resources required to do so and the type of organisation it will evolve into in light of rapidly changing global trends. One of the most significant commitments CARE made is to reform its governance, diversify its membership and transform its ways of working to better leverage diverse contributions from internal and external actors. The opportunity now is to build on the learning and progress made to date, and to accelerate change in the coming years.

Subject: Request for Proposal for Consultancy (International) for Technical Support for System-level Resilience Assessment, titled “Fostering Learning and Adaptation in Resilience building (FLAIRb) Phase II in S3X
Background: A. Organization and Program Background The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) five-year Food for Peace program, granted and implemented by CARE Bangladesh, named “SHOUHARDO III,” aims to improve gender equitable food security, nutrition, and resilience of vulnerable people in Bangladesh by 2020. The program is operating in 8 high-risk districts in the Char and Haor regions, 23 Upazilas, and 115 unions of Bangladesh. To sustain program outcomes and impact in line with the sustainability framework, an anticipated cost extension is under review, subject to award from FFP/USAID and subject to availability of resources. With the proposed cost extension, CARE will have the opportunity to implement the SHOUHARDO III Extension (S3X) in Bangladesh through to 2022 to align S3X with USAID’s critical goal of assisting Bangladesh on the journey to self-reliance. The program will achieve enduring change in its extension period for 168,521 Poor and Extremely Poor (PEP) households through programming that layers, sequences, and integrates technical interventions that meet the immediate needs of PEP communities, while also investing in social, economic, and institutional capital to build a foundation for future food security and resilience in target communities.
