Vacancy: Land Portal Coordinator

Deadline: 02.25.2011

Now more than ever there is a growing consensus and recognition of the importance of secure and equitable access to land and resource rights for reducing poverty, achieving food security, resolving resource conflicts, promoting sustainable resource management, and strengthening democratic development. However, significant barriers exist that hinder the capacities of organizations and individuals to access reliable information needed to advocate and catalyze large-scale change on this issue.

The International Land Coalition and Landtenure.info have formed a partnership to create a Land Portal, an accessible, easy-to-use online platform to share land related information, monitor trends, and identify information gaps to promote effective and sustainable land governance. This partnership is also open to other land-related organisations interested in becoming actively engaged in the Land Portal development.

The recruitment process for the Land Portal Coordinator is now open. She/He will be hired by the International Land Coalition (www.landcoalition.org) acting as partner of the Land Portal partnership.

The Land Portal Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the implementation, maintenance, visibility and expansion of the Land Portal, currently under construction.

Consultants wishing to be considered for this work should send their CV and a letter of motivation to Annalisa Mauro l.mauro@landcoalition.org in copy to info@landcoalition.org (subject: Land Portal Coordinator) by Saturday, 2011 February 25th, indicating their availability.
