Junior Advisor

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

Junior Advisor (m/f/d) for Land Consolidation and Land Governance

In Ethiopia, up to 70% of the population is dependent on agriculture, which accounts for 38% of the gross national product. The highlands are densely populated, and farm sizes vary between 1.5 and 2 ha on average depending on the region. Fragmented plots are highly inefficient to work on and are therefore often referred to as "starvation plots". This hampers modern agriculture and its productivity, which in turn undermines the food security. The Ministry of Agriculture aims to increase agricultural productivity and thus focuses on the use of modern farming methods. It pursues strategies of comprehensive land certification and is interested in using land consolidation as a new instrument to achieve its goals. The farmers are interested in development measures that reduce the distance between the fields and the farm but show considerable distrust regarding any land-related intervention.
