Team Lead - Mozambique 118/119 Tropical Forest and Biodiversity Analysis

Location: Sub-Saharan Africa
Location: Mozambique
Job Code: 3833


Team Leader for Mozambique FAA 118/119 Tropical Forest and Biodiversity Analysis

The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Mozambique is conducting an analysis of the country’s tropical forests and biodiversity to inform USAID/Mozambique’s development of its next country development strategy (the current strategy can be found here). USAID’s approach to development requires that the Agency examine cross-sectoral linkages in support of tropical forest and biodiversity conservation and concurrently mitigates any potential harm. Biodiversity conservation is a critical approach for achieving sustainable development and should be considered in Mission strategic approaches to improve development outcomes in all sectors. The analysis therefore is an opportunity for the Mission to better understand the strategic linkages between the conservation of a country’s biodiversity and development, so that it can structure a sound results framework to support future programming. Notably, the analysis provides the opportunity to integrate biodiversity conservation into priority development sectors identified in the CDCS. For more information about the analysis, consult the USAID Foreign Assistance Act Sections 118/119 Tropical Forest and Biodiversity Analysis Best Practices Guide.

DAI is seeking a senior level Biodiversity/Natural Resource Management Specialist to serve as Team Leader to lead a team of specialists to undertake a USAID tropical forest and biodiversity analysis for Mozambique. This assignment will be for an estimated 50 - 75 working days during the period of August 15, 2018 - March 1, 2019.

  • Post-graduate qualifications (master’s level degree or higher) in biology, ecology, zoology, forestry, ecosystem conservation, or a closely related field.
  • Demonstrated desk research and analytical skills.
  • Experience in the Africa region, preferably in Mozambique or Southern Africa.

  • Exceptional organizational, analytical, writing, and presentation skills.
