DRR Expert ’ Position

USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project is a horticulture value chain activity aimed at addressing the key challenges of rural poverty, natural resource degradation, food insecurity, and under-nutrition. The value chain approach will be applied in achieving increased productivity along key horticulture value chains that include vegetables, fruits and legumes. Through the promotion of sustainable production practices, increased functionality of farmer groups and associations, improved market linkages, and increased availability and access to quality agricultural inputs and services, including access to finance, the project will aim to stimulate and support increased economic activity and growth in targeted rural communities and districts. Sustainability of these interventions will be supported by work to maintain sound policies and enabling environment relevant to the sector, as well as efforts to increase resilience to climate change and improve natural resource management as it relates to farm systems.

People living in rural areas are generally vulnerable to natural disasters. Farmers have poor knowledge about the impact of natural disasters on their land, community and even how it can endanger lives. Since most of the households in rural areas are dependent on agriculture for their livelihood, the lack of knowledge on climate change and disasters risk reduction practices makes rural households even more exposed. Lack of knowledge on farming techniques, shifting cultivations or community awareness in maintaining and protecting natural environment represents additional challenges to sustainable agricultural production and natural resources management.  Farmers and communities need to be trained to improve their capacities to cope with natural disasters, especially in disaster risk reduction practices to prevent the negative impacts of landslides, floods, wild fires and other disasters.

USAID’s Avansa Agrikultura Project is seeking to engage a Consultant to strengthen capacities of human resources and communities in disaster-risk reduction practices.  This Consultant will implement disaster risk reduction training activities and DRR processes in communities, thereby increase knowledge of farmers about the changes caused by climate. The Consultant will work with the community to develop the DRR community process, where communities will learn more and understand the main problems arising from the climate changes and disasters. This process will help communities identify the main disaster-related problems in their communities, making a priority plan and take actions to address the problems.
