Deadline: 30 October, 2012. The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) is looking for a Regional Program Leader for its new region Southeast Asia. CCAFS has initially focused its work on three regions: South Asia, East Africa, and West Africa. These regions were chosen to represent areas that are becoming both drier and wetter and because they will generate results that can be applied and adapted in other regions worldwide as the program evolves.
In 2012, CCAFS is expanding to two new regions: Southeast Asia and Latin America. We are seeking applications from a qualified candidate who will play a crucial role in partnership development and management in Southeast Asia. He/she will mainly be responsible for ensuring coherence among CCAFS themes from field to regional level and will play a key role in achieving outcomes and impacts at national and regional levels. He/she will also be responsible for facilitating the appropriate linkages to other CCAFS activities in the regions. Read more »
