Also Listing:

Azafady seeks a qualified and experienced volunteer specialist in climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies suitable for implementation at the community level in south east Madagascar – one of the top three countries most vulnerable to the effects of climate change in the world.

The specialist will work alongside Azafady’s Conservation & Environment and Project Development departments in Fort Dauphin, Madagascar, for a period of 12 months, and will be responsible for reviewing the organisation’s current strategy and activities in the field of capacity building and risk mitigation as related to climate change across all four of the organisation’s project spheres – sustainable livelihoods, conservation & environment, community health and construction. Preliminary desk research into the national and local context is expected to be carried out by the specialist prior to arrival in Madagascar on account of local limitations with information technology.

Azafady operates on a skill sharing basis, and key to this role will be capacity building the local NGO and international staff. The specialist will also be responsible for advising on the development of future projects that enhance ecosystem and community resilience to the impacts of climate change and support low-carbon development, suitable to the specific local context, as well as increasing understanding of and access to emissions reduction-focused funding.

The position is suited to someone with a keen interest in community based conservation and development work, with a strong working knowledge and experience of climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies suitable for implementation at the community level in a least developed country.

The position is predominantly office based with regular site visits.
