EMPLOYMENT: CCAFS Research Facilitator (Science Officer) Pro-Poor Climate Change Mitigation
The CGIAR Research Program, Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS, http://www.ccafs.cgiar.org) is a major collaborative endeavour between the international agricultural (CGIAR) and global environmental change (ESSP) research communities, and their respective partners. CCAFS seeks to overcome the threats posed by a changing climate to achieving food security, enhancing livelihoods and improving environmental management in the developing world. Launched in 2009, the 10-year program’s current geographical focus is East Africa, West Africa and South Asia.
The Research Facilitator (Science Officer) will support and coordinate research activities of the CCAFS theme on Pro-Poor Climate Change Mitigation. The program’s research on mitigation aims to improve farmers’ livelihoods and meet future food needs in ways that also reduce the impact of agriculture on the climate and are environmentally sustainable. The Science Officer will work closely with the Theme Leader and other members of the CCAFS management team.
