Niras KE-9 Economist - Social Scientist Jobs in Malawi

  • Malawi is vulnerable to multiple hazards, especially floods, droughts, earthquakes, and landslides because of its unique geo-climatic conditions. The location of the country along a tectonically active boundary between two major African plates within the great East African Rift System cause earthquakes and landslides.

  • Over the past few decades, Malawi has experienced more than 19 major floods and seven droughts, with these events increasing in frequency, magnitude and scope over the years. Recurrent disasters in Malawi have had far-reaching impacts on food, energy, health, water and other sectors of the country’s economy. In particular, these disaster events have undermined the stability of livelihoods among the most vulnerable communities.

  • The Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS III) seeks to reduce vulnerability and enhance the resilience of its population to disasters and socio-economic shocks through the development, updating and dissemination of location specific disaster risk information, including hazard and vulnerability maps to decision makers, the general public and communities at risk, among other strategies.

  • Against this background, a number of projects will be undertaken with support from the World Bank under the Malawi Resilience and Disaster Risk Management Project (MRDRMP).

    Qualifications required:

  • MA/MSc degree in economics , social sciences or related fields.

    Professional experience required:

  • 10 years of experience in socio-economic, environmental and financial analyses.

  • Experience in conducting socio-economic and environmental economics research.

  • 4 years of experience of conducting (disaster) risk analysis.
