  • Assist with strategic project management functions such updating and tracking Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), preparing for productive discussions with the project Advisory Committee, and supporting COMESA to take on additional project leadership functions.
  • Closely collaborate with counterparts from COMESA, AGRA, the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD), the NASA Harvest / University of Maryland crop production team, and other partners to ensure that relevant agricultural data is consistently flowing into the Product from counterpart ministries, agencies, and other organizations;
  • Facilitate and document in-country meetings with local companies, organizations, and government bodies to help inform project design and implementation and carry out discrete follow-up activities.
  • Contribute to project deliverables such as the stakeholder engagement strategy, lessons learned, regular program reports and updates, and communications and advocacy strategies and collateral.

Qualification:

  • Bachelor’s degree in agricultural sciences, food systems, economics, development studies, public policy, business, communication, or a related field. Master’s degree preferred.
  • At least 8 years of experience in project management (design, implementation, close-out) and stakeholder engagement in the field of agricultural development or food analytics, with specific experience in policy, advocacy, and partnership building.
  • Experience with agricultural production and food security monitoring and decision support strongly encouraged. Familiarly with digital, remote-sensing and agricultural analytical technologies and international donor programs and funding practices preferred.
  • Strong understanding of complex food systems/food security issues and the associated agricultural stakeholder ecosystem in East and Southern Africa.
