IFDC seeks to recruit a Coordinator Fertilizer and Seed Subsidy who will work for the Project d’Appui à la Productivité Agricole au Burundi (PAPAB) program but ensure linkages and integration with the Private Seed Sector Development Project (PSSD) and other Netherlands Embassy-funded productivity and commercialization activities.
In Burundi, IFDC implements the PAPAB and PSSD with funding from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN) in Burundi.
The objective of the Coordinator position is to provide technical assistance to the managing body of PNSEB and transform this body to a unit which functions autonomously. Simultaneously the lessons learned from the technical assistance to PNSEB will be used to put in place the PNSSB and its support body and advisory organs. The coordinator will work with the Government and implementing partners to ensure alignment and integration of the Government’s planned seed subsidy program with a particular focus that it supports private seed and fertilizer sector activities, and does not disrupt them through procurement and pricing distortions
