BACKGROUND:

The Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA) was established by the Government of Ethiopia with assistance from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to identify and address systemic bottlenecks in Ethiopia’s agricultural development. The ATA does this through planning, analysis, implementation support, and reporting on the interventions outlined in the Agricultural Transformation Agenda. The Transformation Agenda is a set of prioritized interventions to accelerate the transformation envisioned as part of Ethiopia’s Growth and Transformation Plan II. The Transformation Agenda is overseen by the Agricultural Transformation Council chaired by the Prime Minister.

ATA has launched a Delivery Unit in the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources (MoANR) to directly support MoANR’s work on the Transformation Agenda. Delivery Units have played a critical role in accelerating execution of development initiatives in many countries, particularly in East and Southeast Asia, and today are also present in Ethiopia’s Prime Minister’s office and the Revenue and Customs Authority. The Delivery Unit will be jointly overseen by the Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources and ATA senior management. The Delivery Unit team plays a highly visible and pivotal role in accelerating agricultural transformation and development in Ethiopia.

  • Climate Change: Strengthening that agricultural and market systems and services that promote Climate Smart Agriculture (including financial systems, output markets and input distribution systems), and enhancing human and institutional capacity to promote Climate Smart Agriculture
  • The TA Advisor must have strong interpersonal and stakeholder management skills, technical expertise and problem-solving experience, as well as initiative design, planning, implementation management and reporting experience. The TA Advisor will report directly to the State Minister of Natural Resources and have a second, functional reporting line to the Delivery Unit Coordinator. This position provides an opportunity to be on the front lines of Ethiopia’s growth and transformation into a middle-income country. The successful candidate will have a strong desire to learn, innovate and drive rapid change to benefit Ethiopia’s farmers.

Ethiopia: Call for CVs: Migration Experts (GIZ/African Union) Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Organization: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 27 May 2018

Background: Migration, refugee movements and internal displacement shaped the African continent in the past decades and gained renewed relevance with a rising number of displaced persons in recent years. Migration is by nature transnational and thus needs coordination and management beyond the national level. The African Union (AU) took up its responsibility in developing continent wide positions and strategies and setting standards on migration, mobility and displacement. Together with its Regional Economic Communities (RECs), the AU is charged with the responsibility of coordinating and overseeing the implementation of conventions and declarations on continental, regional and national level. Further, the AU Commission (AUC) represents the continent in international and regional fora like the EU-Africa Migration and Mobility Dialogue, the UN Global Compact on Migration, etc., and assures the implementation of common agreements and action plans. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) commissioned a three year project, implemented by GIZ, to support the AUC in the area of migration and displacement. The objective of this project is to strengthen the capacities of the African Union to realise its mandate in the area of migration, mobility, and displacement. GIZ supports its implementing partner, the AUC's Department of Social Affairs, in enhancing its coordination function on migration related topics inside the AU as well as on the continent. It further supports the implementation of the Migration Policy Framework for Africa (MPFA) on the level of RECs and member states. Finally, it supports different departments and organs within the AU to enhance their capacities in the broader field of migration (including diaspora, remittances, labour migration etc.) through an open fund.

Experience: GIZ is therefore looking for migration experts with a minimum of 5 years working experience in one or more of the following thematic fields of the MPFA:

  • Migration Governance: proven knowledge in global and African migration governance.
  • Free Movement of Persons: proven knowledge regarding free movement of persons, regional integration, etc.
  • Labour Migration: proven knowledge of labour migration policies, legislation and structures at national and regional levels regarding the protection of migrant workers, labour recruitment systems and bilateral labour agreements and especially the Joint Labour Migration Programme and its key areas of activity: free movement of workers, skills portability, labour market information systems, brain gain and brain circulation.
  • Diaspora Engagement: proven knowledge regarding the migration-development nexus, diaspora participation and engagement, transfer of knowledge, skills and technologies.
  • Remittances: proven knowledge regarding the developmental effects of remittances and remittance transfer mechanisms.
  • Protection Regimes and Durable Solutions: proven knowledge of international and African conventions and protocols regarding refugees, asylum-seekers and internally displaced persons as well as protection strategies.
  • Human Trafficking: proven knowledge of counter-trafficking strategies, international conventions and protocols regarding the trafficking in persons, protection of victims of trafficking.
  • Return and reintegration: proven knowledge regarding (socio-economic) reintegration and/or labour-marked integration in the area of voluntary return as well as irregular migration and displacement.
  • Legal Drafting/ Policy Development: Experience in legal drafting with a focus on African Union law/ Public International Law; Experience in Human Rights Law.

Requirements: A suitable candidate must fulfill the following general requirements:

  • Advanced degree in the field of international relations, human rights, development, migration, law or any related field;
  • Minimum of 5 years working experience in one or more of the thematic fields of the MPFA
  • Knowledge of the global and African institutional environment regarding migration, mobility and displacement;
  • Knowledge of global and regional processes in the field of migration, mobility and displacement;
  • Proven working or cooperation experience with regional, continental or global organisations;
  • Working experience with the AUC or other AU organs will be an asset/ of advantage;
  • Demonstrate effective ability for teamwork, as well as the ability to work independently;
  • Fluency in English required; fluency in French will be a strong asset;
  • Excellent communication skills;
  • Ability to work in a multicultural environment;
  • Willingness to travel on the African continent.
