Agricultural Specialist, Wonegizi REDD+ Project, Liberia
Fauna & Flora International

Salary: Circa USD 35,000 per annum, depending on skills and experience
Start Date: 1 October 2016 (or sooner if possible)
Duration of Contract: Two-year fixed-term contract, with potential to extend subject to business need and funding availability
Location: Lofa County (predominantly) and Monrovia, with occasional international travel as required

FFI is seeking a qualified candidate to play a leading role in the design and implementation of the agricultural transformation programme, a key component of the Wonegizi REDD+ Project. The project is one of the most ambitious agricultural extension and transformation programmes undertaken by FFI to date. It is fundamental to sustaining the commitment of local communities to sustainable land use management and reducing deforestation rates, and will pioneer innovation in the long-term financing of conservation efforts in Liberia. At its core is a focus on uniting the conservation and development agendas within and around an area of significant importance for biodiversity – a substantial area of the remaining Upper Guinean Forest ecosystem in Liberia.

The vision and impact of the project will extend beyond the immediate project area, and will inform the development of national policy processes that support replication of community and biodiversity-centred approaches to forest conservation throughout the country. The project illustrates a truly cross-cutting and collaborative approach to delivery, both within FFI and with partners and stakeholders in Liberia. Delivering scalable agricultural transformation that addresses both shifting cultivation practices and commercialisation of cash crop production is central to reducing deforestation. The Agricultural Specialist will need to ensure the project is delivering on the agricultural transformation in line with wider project objectives, with a strong focus on building trust and cooperation with the farmers involved, our local project partners and the wider communities.

You will have strong technical skills in relevant aspects of shifting cultivation, soil management, cash crop development and market access, and experience of managing large scale agricultural development projects. You will have proven skills in the design and delivery of technical training, as well as operational and financial management skills. You will have the training and motivation skills needed to establish trust and engage farmers and local partners, and expertise in the identification and use of locally appropriate technology.

This position will be predominantly based in Lofa County with regular visits to FFI’s office in Monrovia, plus occasional other national and international travel as required to meet project needs. In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within a ground-breaking and entrepreneurial organisation, at the forefront of global conservation.
