CONSULTANCY: Women's Access to and Control over Land in Eastern and Southern Africa
The International Land Coalition has recently started a new research and advocacy project on women's access to land in Eastern and Southern Africa which will be implemented in close collaboration with partner institutions in the region, the Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR) in Uganda, and the Programme for Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) in South Africa.
The ILC is looking for a consultant with expertise in women's access to and control over land as well as knowledge of the Eastern and Southern African sub-regions. The consultant will work on a number of documents, including a background paper for a small grants programme that will link the workin the region to the global context and a toolkit on research methods to be used and complemented throughout the small grants programme.
The consultant will not only produce such documents, but will develop and facilitate training/capacity-building sessions for participating organisations. All tasks will be carried out in close collaboration with the regional research institutions and the ILC Secretariat programme staff.
For more details, and to request a copy of the ToR, plese contact Sabine Pallas at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application deadline is 4 February 2008.
