EMPLOYMENT: Ford Foundation Program Officer, Expanding Community Rights over Natural Resources (Beijing)
The Program Officer will develop, monitor, and coordinate grant-making that enhances community access to natural resources in fragile environments in China, particularly among communities in Western China. The goals of this Foundation-wide program are to give poor and marginalized groups greater control over natural resources, and to ensure that government investments in natural resources respond to local needs. The assumption underlying the program is that communities and natural resources are both well served when communities in environmentally sensitive areas have a stake in decisions affecting their lives and livelihoods. In China, these goals are pursued through a number of approaches including research, communications, community participation, education, and government engagement at all levels.
Deadline: March 12, 2012
