Job Description

Project information

The German development cooperation (GIZ) has been supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Land Management Programme (SLMP) since 2008.

Activities of GIZ SLM hereby focused on the rehabilitation of degraded land across the three highland areas of Amhara, Oromia and Tigray.

In 2015, geographical coverage of GIZ SLM interventions extended. Yet, the programmatic focus remained the same and no systemic approach was proposed.

With the initiation of the Sustainable Use of Rehabilitated Land for Economic Development (SURED) Programme in 2018, the focus has shifted.

Both the thematical and methodological approach now aim at sustainably empowering the partner system itself rather than substituting for government activities.

Systemic capacity building is at the centre of strategic thinking and entails that skill development is anchored within local institutions.

Within the scope of the GIZ SURED Programme, GFA is commissioned to implement component 3. The focus lies on developing and improving an innovative training course delivery system.
