TECHNICAL ADVISOR (Deadline 20th November, 2000)

Tanga Coastal Zone Conservation and Management Programme
IUCN is looking for an experienced professional as the Technical Advisor (TA) for the Tanga Coastal Zone Conservation and Development Programme Phase III. The Tanga Coastal Zone Conservation and Development Programme implemented by the three districts of Tanga Region (Muheza and Pangani Districts and Tanga Municipality) started in 1994 and aims to enhance the well-being of coastal communities in the region by improving the health of the environment that they depend on, and by diversifying the options for using coastal resources. The Programme is working with coastal fishing villages to improve management of coral reefs and mangroves, and the coastal resources that the villagers depend upon for their livelihoods.  District and village level institutions are being strengthened so that they can undertake integrated management in a sustainable way.

The TA will be the principal focal point and coordinator for the delivery of IUCN Technical Assistance in implementing the project. The programme is focusing on building sustainable institutions and capacity for coastal management and the TA will therefore play a primarily advisory role.

Ø Project management experience, including multi-displinary team management, financial management and procurement; 
Ø Proficiency in spoken and written English; fluency or working knowledge of Kiswahili would be an added advantage;
Ø Exceptional communications, negotiation and liaison skills.
The contract will be for two years.
