This project will build long term climate resilience among agro-pastoral communities using participatory watershed-based approaches that restore ecosystems.

It will re-establish and strengthen market linkages and agricultural value chains and equip extension agencies to support communities in adopting gender-responsive, climate smart agricultural practices and diversifying livelihoods using hands-on, farmer-field based approaches.

Climate change will be mainstreamed into management plans and programs in agriculture and natural resource management (NRM) and proactive collaboration and knowledge sharing will build synergies with other relevant initiatives.

Requirements Include:

  • Minimum of a Bachelor’s
    Degree in a humanitarian or development related field.

  • Technical expertise and minimum of 7 years demonstrated experience in ecosystem-based adaptation or in participatory landscape (or watershed) restoration, including application of land-use planning, community-based NRM assessments, soil water conservation / water-buffering approaches, climate-smart agriculture and/or another field relevant to the project themes.

  • Contextual understanding of climate change in Horn of Africa and impacts on agro-pastoral communities, particularly women.

  • At least 3-5 years of proven ability in the management of large integrated projects in fragile contexts

  • Ability to master and implement donor regulations and coordination; experience with UNDP is a plus, experience with other bilateral donors such as USAID, GAC, FCDO and others will also be considered favourably.
