Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition Policy Advisor Jobs in Rwanda

About the Role

Underpinned by strong economic growth and high-level government commitment, the potential to accelerate improvements in nutritional outcomes in Rwanda is very high.

The food systems pathway submitted by the Government of Rwanda at the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit provides a strong basis for realizing a range of food systems improvements that have the potential to improve the nutritional status, particularly of young children and women.

The preparation of the next National Strategy for Transformation (NST-2) and the next Strategic Plan for Agriculture (PSTA-5) provide the opportunity to elevate nutrition outcomes as a priority and to advance these outcomes through the identification of a set of coherent and impactful policies, programmes and actions.

The Policy Advisor will support the Senior Policy Advisor to implement a structured process of building food systems actions that have the potential to advance nutritional outcomes into the next National Strategy for Transformation (NST-2) and the next Strategic Plan for Agriculture (PSTA-5) with a focus on helping key decision makers to understand the necessary policy changes through the provision of evidence and analysis.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Lead on the provision of technical policy support through conducting data-based analyses to predict how policies will impact food and nutrition outcomes.

  • Compile insights from these analyses and from the existing literature into simple yet nuanced narratives, through for example, contextualized briefing documents.

  • Establish and strengthen strategic partnerships with technical specialists in government and non-government organizations to forge consensus on what needs to be done on a technical level to accelerate nutrition outcomes.

  • Produce and deliver periodic updates and briefs and identify key data and learnings to be used for the GAIN website, internal stakeholders and Knowledge Leadership system.

  • Facilitate the organization of
    dialogues, learning opportunities and meetings.

  • Monitor, engage and represent GAIN in key national-level and country-level policy fora and meetings.

  • Support dissemination of key messages arising from GAIN through e.g., Media, social media, and positioning events.
