The candidate will work closely with NGO partners, local government and coastal communities in Tanzania, with short term inputs from FFI and external advisers, to design and advance new opportunities for locally-led conservation and participatory marine resource governance (e.g. using the Locally Managed Marine Area (LMMA) model), livelihoods enhancement and diversification (through sustainable small-scale fisheries and SME/market development), and advocacy to improve policy and practices in marine ecosystems.
