Nursery Coordinator at Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

Job Description

Nursery Coordinator

Internal/External Vacancy Announcement #194/2019

Strengthening Drought Resilience Programme (SDR)


Economic development in Ethiopia is highly dependent on agriculture. Crop cultivation and livestock farming are the mainstay livelihoods for 79% of the population. Over 25 million people live in Ethiopia’s arid and semi-arid lowlands, with 1.6 million living in the state of Afar. 87% of the population is rural and derives its livelihood either entirely from livestock farming or from a combination of crop and livestock farming. However, the adapted traditional agricultural systems are coming under increasing pressure. The primary reason is the growing scarcity of natural resources, which is the consequence of population growth and climate change. The increasing frequency of climate-related extreme weather events, such as drought caused by El Niño followed by heavy rains, exacerbates the situation and has an adverse impact on food security.

The population and the institutions involved do not have the capacities required to secure productive livelihoods and food for the long term, also in the event of climate-induced weather extremes (core problem). The project objective is strengthening capacities of the population and the institutions involved to enable them to secure productive livelihoods and food for the long term, also in the event of climate-induced weather extremes.
