Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

  • Advisor
  • 5 years
  • Addis Ababa

Advisor GIZ- Internal/External Vacancy Announcement #037/2020 Responsible Governance of Investments in Land (RGIL) Project The livelihood of a large part of the world's population directly depends on access to land and its secure long-term use. Many landowners and land users have only informal or traditional tenure rights, which are often not sufficiently recognized. Representative household surveys conducted by the World Bank in six African countries have shown that less than 20 % of small farmers are able to present a document identifying them as owners of their land. Commercial investments in agriculture and forestry are increasingly exerting pressure on land as a resource. Due to a lack of safeguarding measures, these investments can lead to loss of access to land, conflicts and forced evictions, thereby restricting and preventing inclusive and sustainable development pathways. Many countries have committed themselves to good land governance, but there are still considerable challenges for its implementation. The rural population is highly dependent on political decision-makers and formal and informal power structures. Corruption in land transactions remains very high. Therefore, the RGIL project aims to contribute to increased agricultural productivity and development in Ethiopia. The specific objective of the project is that investments in land are productive, contribute to sustainable land management, and respect the rights and needs of local populations in particular vulnerable groups and women. The proposed Actions’ strategic approach aims at strengthening the capacities of key stakeholders (governmental staff, selected investors as well as civil society and community representatives) and improving the regulatory framework for investment in land. The participation of civil society organizations in the formulation and implementation of responsible land policies is promoted, and private enterprises investing in agriculture and forestry are sensitized to follow acknowledged principles for responsible investments. Responsibilities: Supporting the Project Manager and the National Senior Project Coordinator in communication and project monitoring; Coordinating the national cooperation with the community, civil society, academia, and NGOs; Advising CSOs (and related financial proposals) in the realm of conflict resolution, multi-stakeholder platforms and awareness-raising on land and responsible investments; Ensuring coordination within the country, especially between local, regional and national activities; Coordinating the cooperation with civil society at the national level, responsible for closure activities. Required qualifications, experiences and competences: Qualifications Master’s degree from an accredited college or university in agricultural studies, geography, community development or any other related field. Professional experience At least 5 years’ professional experience from working with the civil society and community engagement; Work experience in land-related development projects is an asset. Other knowledge, additional competencies Very good working knowledge of ICT building safety survey technologies (related software, phone, fax, email, the internet) and computer applications (e.g. MS Office); Excellent communication and moderation skills, both written and oral in English and Amharic; Willingness to upskill as required by the tasks to be performed – corresponding measures are agreed with management; Good interpersonal skills and team spirit.
