EMPLOYMENT: ICIMOD Gender and Climate Change Expert
ICIMOD is a regional knowledge development and learning centre serving eight regional member countries of the Hindu Kush-Himalayas (HKH) – Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan. We are working to develop an economically and environmentally sound mountain ecosystem to improve the living standards and livelihood options of mountain women and men – now, and for the future. In line with its new Strategic Framework, ICIMOD is strengthening its capacity to develop new approaches to meet the growing challenges in the region posed by multiple drivers of change such as climate change, land use change, migration, and globalisation.
Under the overall guidance of the Programme Manager Sustainable Livelihoods and Poverty Reduction (SLPR) and the direct supervision of the Gender and Governance Division Head, the Gender Expert will contribute to enhancing and strengthening ICIMOD’s capacities to address gender and climate change issues in mountain development and dissemination of knowledge on gender and sustainable development particularly for the HICAP project.
