Organizational context

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is an international financial institution and a specialized United Nations agency dedicated to eradicating rural poverty and hunger. It does so by investing in rural people. IFAD finances programmes and projects that increase agricultural productivity and raise rural incomes, and  advocates at the local, national and international level for policies that contribute to rural transformation.


Post's organizational accountability

This is a one year fixed term co-terminus position fully financed with supplementary funds, contract renewal depends on the fund availability and/or duration of the project. There is no expectation of renewal or conversion into another kind of contract.

The Strategy and Knowledge Department (SKD) provides expert guidance on IFAD's strategic direction, thematic priorities and technical quality of IFAD’s operations. It plays a critical role in providing technical expertise to operational teams to enhance development effectiveness, by generating and disseminating IFAD’s development knowledge and evidence on strategic themes, and encouraging innovative application of cutting-edge global knowledge and evidence in IFAD investments to support countries tackle their most complex development challenges in fostering inclusive and sustainable rural transformation. SKD is composed of the (i) Environment, Climate, Gender and Social Inclusion Division (ECG); the (ii) Sustainable Production, Markets and Institutions Division (PMI); and the (iii) Research and Impact Assessment Division (RIA).

ECG takes the lead in mainstreaming crosscutting themes of environment and climate, nutrition, gender, youth, and indigenous peoples social inclusion into IFAD's portfolio, to strengthen the quality of IFAD’s operations and achieve improved impacts in these areas in an integrated manner. It is pursuing a new transformation agenda that seeks to integrate IFAD’s four themes (gender, youth, nutrition and climate) for enhanced results. ECG contributes to the generation of evidence and knowledge on these crosscutting themes, and facilitates their use in IFAD projects and activities. In addition, it provides guidance and support to ensure the inclusion of marginalized groups, particularly women, indigenous peoples and rural youth, into IFAD operations.

Nutrition contributes to the vibrant rural transformation that IFAD seeks to promote and is therefore at the centre of IFAD’s Strategic Framework (2016-2025), specifically under Strategic Objective 1: Increase poor rural people’s productive capacities. IFAD recognizes that malnutrition compromises rural people’s ability to come out of poverty. In its eleventh replenishment, IFAD committed to improve the nutrition of 12 million people by 2021 and to increase the target of projects that are nutrition sensitive at design to 50 per cent by 2021 (the IFAD10 target was 33 percent). The IFAD Nutrition Action Plan 2019-2025 aims to increase the nutritional impact of IFAD's investments based on its comparative advantage in investing in smallholder farmers. IFAD has received supplementary funds from NORAD to support the implementation of the NAP and improve the nutrition outcomes of its investments. 

The Technical Specialist will be responsible for providing coordination and technical support and advisory role for the effective and timely implementation of the Nourishing People and the Earth through Inclusive and Sustainable Agriculture Programme, financed by NORAD through supplementary funds.
