As part of the Centre’s work to bring tree-based solutions to bear on poverty and environmental problems, researchers – working in close collaboration with partners – are developing new technologies, tools and policy recommendations for increased food security and ecosystem health.
The Malawi-based Agricultural/Resource Economist is expected to contribute to strategic research & development, communication of science for impact, capacity building, and resource mobilization and administration.
