Field of activity
Deutsche Gesellschaft f�r Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a service enterprise for development cooperation with international operations and global experience. Owned by the Federal Republic of Germany, the organisation operates as a private-sector enterprise with a development-policy mandate: to make sustainable improvements to the living conditions of people in partner countries. The organization's business area GIZ International Services is the vehicle for offering results-oriented services on the international market.
GIZ International Services has submitted a Letter of Interest to the EU for the provision of technical assistance to the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock of the Republic of Zambia to assist them in the implementation of the 'Performance Enhancement Programme for the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock for Better Service Delivery to Farmers'.
The project will focus on the following three result areas:
  • Improved use of evidence for policy making, planning and budgeting in the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAL) underpinning service delivery to rural households;
  • Enhanced capacity of MAL staff to coordinate and provide extension services that contribute to increased productivity and improved food/nutrition security in small scale farming households;
  • Increased dietary diversity of women and children in poor rural households through more effective nutrition-sensitive farmer extension and services facilitated by MAL.
Your tasks
As the team leader of the project you will be responsible for planning, managing and allocating the inputs of the long-term and short-term experts. Your task is ensuring the successful implementation of all project activities in close coordination with the main beneficiary institutions. You are responsible for the achievement of clients objectives. You maintain managerial oversight over the projects administrative and financial processes and ensure the compliance with GIZ Orientation and Rules, as well as EU requirements. You steer the team of international, regional and national staff according to GIZs personnel policy. You represent the project internally within the GIZ Senior Management Team and towards the GIZ Coordination Office Zambia. To the outside, you represent the project towards the client and governmental partners.
More specifically you will manage the programme intervention in the following fields of activity:
  • Policy formulation and analysis; and legislative reforms
  • Strengthening of Planning and Budgeting standards and tools
  • Development and strengthening of the Ministry's Farmer Registration, M&E, Agriculture Statistics and Early Warning Systems
  • Strengthening Change Management
  • Strengthen extension management
  • Institutionalise joint research-extension planning and strengthened dissemination
  • Strengthening training provision for MAL staff
  • Position Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) within MAL for more nutrition-sensitive services and policies across MAL with strengthened direction and technical capacity
  • Mainstream nutrition into agricultural, livestock and fisheries services at district level
The design of the project reflects the way that the Ministry operates with policies, plans and budgets formulated at headquarters level (using information from lower levels) and being further cascaded down to lower levels for implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Project activities thus follow this route, with geographical scope defined in variable manner depending on the concrete needs in each results area and availability of resources.
