SEADS is being developed as a set of international standards and guidelines for the assessment, design, implementation and evaluation of agriculture interventions to assist people affected by humanitarian crises. The ultimate aim of SEADS is to enable the best possible programming in support of smallholder agriculture livelihoods in emergencies.

The SEADS evidence reviews aim to compile current evidence on the performance of emergency agriculture projects on livelihood impacts.  It is further recognized that restored and improved agriculture production is an important aspect of understanding the impact of emergency projects, but does not necessarily lead to livelihoods or nutritional impacts.

A consultant is required to review the evidence on the impacts and cost effectiveness of direct and indirect emergency soil fertility interventions. Direct soil fertility interventions are generally supply-side approaches that assume availability of fertilizer or application equipment are the primary constraints. Indirect soil fertility interventions tend to be services and market-based approaches that focus on supporting soil fertility practices that give farmers the means to improve their soil health.
