EMPLOYMENT: Opportunities with the Land Policy Initiative (Addis Ababa)
The Land Policy Initiative (LPI) is a joint programme of the tripartite consortium consisting of the African Union Commission (AUC), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). Its purpose is to enable the use of land to lend impetus to the process of African development. The programme is governed by a Steering Committee that meets periodically, while a joint secretariat implements day to day activities. The secretariat is assisted by an African Taskforce on Land.
After having developed the Framework and Guidelines (F&G) on land policy in Africa, and received the mandate from the African Union (AU) to use it in support of national and regional land policy processes, the LPI is now moving towards assisting AU Member States in developing or reviewing their land policies as well as in implementing and evaluating these policies.
LPI is currently accepting applications for the following positions at its Addis Ababa-based secretariat.
- Coordinator, Land Policy Initiative, P5
- Programme Officer (Monitoring & Evaluation), P4
- Economic Affairs Officer (Regional Land Expert), Two posts, P3
- Programme Management Officer, LPI, P3
- Communication Officer (Land Policy Advocacy), P3
Deadline: June 6, 2013
