Project Management and Coordination of the Sustainability and Inclusion Strategy for Growth Corridors in Africa Program

From April to mid July 2014 Aidenvironment will be responsible for managing and coordinating the inception phase of the IUCN Sustainability and Inclusion Strategy for Growth Corridors in Africa program (SUSTAIN–Africa).
The SUSTAIN–Africa program takes a new approach that focuses on the sustainable growth of corridors: areas of intensive economic growth where development of natural-resource-based industries is prioritized because of their potential to capitalize growth. Over a period of 10 years, the program aims to develop and demonstrate climate-resilient solutions for water security and inclusive land resource and agricultural development in growth corridors and areas of intensive economic development in Africa. The program will be launched in the Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania. Funding has been generously granted by the Government of the Netherlands.

Aidenvironment will be responsible for designing and implementing an effective inception process, working closely with the IUCN offices in Tanzania, Switzerland and the Netherlands to ensure liaison and coordination among participating teams, as well as overseeing work planning and scheduling.

Aidenvironment has in-depth experience with different strategies to promote sustainable growth and management of complex projects.
