One of the outcomes from the consultancy is for establishing a “Joint Fund” for PRONASAR, comprised by (i) a Common Fund with funds being channel through Government Single Treasure Account (CUT) and managed directly by the Government; and (ii) funding through a Fund Manager (FM); apart from other project/programme provincial/district direct funding allocations. In all these funding options, the coordination & guidance role from DNAAS is fundamental for ensuring proper accounting of PRONASAR resources.

For the finalization of PRONASAR document, DNAAS and the 4 PRONASAR partners agreed to engage a multidisciplinary team of consultant to support:

  1. Integration, into PRONASAR document, of the funding modalities and future coordination mechanisms agreed ensuring quality and consistency throughout the PRONASAR document;

  • TOR for the Independent Monitoring Agent;
  • Setting up criteria for resource allocation to provinces (and districts); for prioritization among the PRONASAR components (Capacity building, sanitation); and developing integrated PRONASAR planning process.

To fulfill the above, it’s anticipated that the multidisciplinary team of consultants should consist of 3 experts:

  • 1 team Leader/Coordinator;
  • 1 Rural WASH Specialist;
  • 1 Legal/Public Financial Management expert (and MoU development) with strong knowledge & understanding of rural WASH.

An umbrella TOR for this multidisciplinary team was developed highlighting the specific Roles & responsibilities for each team member as well as work relationship among them. These Umbrella TOR are attached and are part of this consultancy.

The main purpose of the current TOR is for engaging a Rural WASH Specialist/consultant that will be responsible for developing the Operating Manual and related documents for management and implementation of PRONASAR.

Comments Off on Deputy Team Lead

Deputy 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 Conservation Social Scientist to serve as Deputy Team Leader to support the development of 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.

Candidates should possess the following qualifications:

  • Expertise in Mozambique’s environmental policies, and institutional and legal frameworks;
  • Preference for specialty in forestry and environmental governance;
  • Knowledge of and experience working in Mozambique’s forest, biodiversity, conservation areas;
  •   Proven track record engaging with Mozambique’s government agencies, non-governmental organizations, international donors, and private sector;
  • Excellent analytical skills, particularly concerning forest management, conservation and environmental governance;
  • Experience using geographical perspectives, spatial data analysis and map-based communication to inform development programming;

ESARO’s Programme focuses on biodiversity conservation through a diverse portfolio of projects and programmatic initiatives ranging from activities at the level of individual protected areas to shaping regional policy on biodiversity conservation. ESARO defines and delivers on its programmatic priorities in collaboration with IUCN members, commissions and other strategic partners.
