EMPLOYMENT: Partnership Coordinator, EcoAgriculture Partners
EcoAgriculture Partners is a non-profit organization that works internationally to facilitate sustainable food production, rural livelihoods, and environmental conservation globally (www.ecoagriculture.org). The organization does so by developing and promoting integrative approaches to rural landscape management, by engaging in regional and global policy processes, and by supporting the work of our diverse grassroots and international partners.
A centerpiece of EcoAgriculture’s work is to facilitate and co-lead the Landscapes for People, Food, and Nature Initiative (LPFN)—a collaborative effort with more than 60 partner organizations to advance and scale-up integrated, multi-stakeholder agricultural landscape approaches worldwide. The Initiative develops and communicates the evidence base for such approaches, fosters cross-sectoral dialogue, and implements a global collaborative action agenda. See www.landscapes.ecoagriculture.org, www.blog.ecoagriculture.org.
EcoAgriculture seeks to hire a Partnership Coordinator to join our committed team in our Washington, D.C. headquarters as soon as possible. The position could be structured for 50-100% time and will require occasional national and international travel.
The Partnership Coordinator will assist the President/CEO of EcoAgriculture to:
- Coordinate communications with international partners in the Landscapes for People, Food and Nature initiative (LPFN)
