As a federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its objective in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ operates in more than 130 countries around the globe. GIZ has been working for more than 30 years in Malawi. The country is a priority for German international cooperation and currently focuses on three priority areas: education, health and private sector development in rural areas. In addition to our work on these areas, we also work on public financial and economic management and social protection.
GIZ Malawi is implementing Germany’s “One World – No Hunger Initiative” through the “Global Programme: Green Innovation Centres for the Agriculture and Food Sector”. This global programme aims to use innovations in the agricultural and food sector to boost the incomes of smallholders, create more employment opportunities, and to increase regional food supplies in rural target areas. To achieve this, the programme works with local and international partners to promote innovation networks in the agricultural and food sector. The programme is partnering with the EU-funded action “KULIMA Promoting Farming in Malawi” for the component “Improving the access to and use of agriculture research innovations by Malawian farmers”.
KULIMA stands for Kutukula Ulimi m’Malawi meaning in the main local language, Chichewa, “promoting farming in Malawi”. The 1st component of the KULIMA project aims at a sustainable increase of productivity and diversification of smallholder farmers based on market demand while the 2nd component aims at increasing income generated by farmer enterprises, including smallholders, and at creating jobs through developing local value addition of agriculture products. The 3rd component aims at stimulating better information supply to the public and Parliament on agricultural policy and its outcomes.
The Programme seeks to recruit a suitably qualified Programme Officer – M&E & Communication.
