The International Trade Centre (ITC) is a joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization, focusing on developing the export capabilities of small and medium-sized businesses in developing and transition economies. ITC is 100% "Aid for Trade", supporting trade that delivers inclusive and sustainable development results.

Since its inauguration in 2019, the Senegambia Bridge has contributed to a significant increase in migration and mobility. For the first time, the northern and the southern halves of The Gambia are connected by road, as the bridge links Farafenni in the Upper Baddibu district to Mansakonko, Soma, and Jarra Jenoi in the Jarra West district. While creating economic opportunities, the reduced transit times and increase in the number of transiting people also led to amplified vulnerabilities, especially for women and youth in the border communities along the route. 

The International Trade Centre (ITC), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), in close collaboration with the Government of The Gambia through the Ministry of Trade, Industry, Regional Integration and Employment (MOTIE) and Ministry of Interior (MOI), are implementing a joint programme entitled “Addressing the drivers and causes of migration related vulnerabilities among border communities along the Trans-Gambia transport corridor”.

ITC is looking for a consultant to gather baseline data to form the basis for measuring project achievements and outcomes (at the project objectives and intermediate result levels) based on the project log frame.
