EMPLOYMENT: Director General, Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR)
The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) advances human wellbeing, environmental conservation and equity by conducting research to inform policies and practices that affect forests in developing countries. CIFOR is one of 15 Centers within the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) and the Lead Center of the CGIAR Research Programme on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (CRP6). CIFOR’s headquarters are in Bogor, Indonesia, with offices in Asia, Africa and South America.
Not many research centres have a global engagement with a broad range of forest-related issues, stress the perspectives of poor countries and communities, combine policy and research, question conventional wisdom, and constantly focus on how to have an impact. CIFOR is one of those few.
CIFOR is looking for a Director General who shares the organization’s passion for enhancing the role of forests in human well-being and environmental conservation, and their commitment to professionalism, innovation, impact, and collaboration.
Deadline: February 29, 2012
