Integrated Landscape Managment to Enchance Food Scurity and Ecosystem Resilience in Ethiopia Project:
The goal of this project is: To enhance long-term sustainability and resilience of food production systems by addressing the environmental drivers of food insecurity in Ethiopia. The overarching focus is on integrated landscape management (ILM) to achieve food production resilience in landscapes under pressure. ILM combines land management choices and Integrated Natural Resources Management (INRM) with water- and climate-smart agriculture, value chain support and gender responsiveness. Promoting gender equality is an integral part of the project. Young women and men, girls and boys, have different experiences, needs, interests and aspirations which should be taken into account when designing any program. Investigation into the social norms around gender equality, a good understanding of their context specific socialization processes and the legal and policy framework around gender equality are crucial to designing gender sensitive landscape management interventions.
It is a five years project implemented by Federal Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in six regions and 12 project sites or woredas. The regions and woredas are Oromia (Chiro and Doba), Amhara (Angolela Tera and Menz Gera), SNNPR (Boricha and Duguna Fango), Tigray (Raya Azebo and Tanqua Abregele, Ethiopia Somali (Gursum and Tuliguled) and Afar (Abaala and Amibara).
Objective of the Service/Work
Ethiopia has committed to gender equality as a guiding principle in every sphere to reverse the past inequalities suffered by women. It also adopted a constitution which assures women to have equal rights with men and benefit with men including ownership of land. Although women are key players and change agents in natural resource management and food production; social and economic inequalities between men and women draw them back from efficiently playing their role. Gender equality will be essential to successful project implementation and achievement of outcomes. The project takes a gender responsive approach at each stage and level by empowering women to come to the leading and decision-making positions. Equality in access to resources, goods, services and decision-making in rural areas has to be formulated in response to evidence that gender inequality exacerbates food insecurity, malnutrition and poverty. This project is dedicated to gender-responsiveness - a gender analysis is undertaken and socio-economic indicators are developed to effectively integrate gender in the implementation and monitoring of the project.
This assignment will provide gender capacity building support to identify intervention pathways that unlock the barriers that currently prevent women smallholder farmers from benefiting from Landscape management. The major objectives of the Assignment is therefore to develop a training module for national policy analysts, woreda gender teams and woreda experts in the collection and use of sex-disaggregated data.
