In Cambodia, SNV implements projects in the agri-food, energy and water sectors, working with the public and private sector.

About Project 

SNV in partnership with the Global Evergreening Alliance (GEA) is developing a land restoration programme generating livelihood, climate and environmental benefits through widescale planting of timber trees and perennial crops, partly funded by generation of carbon credits. The programme aims to support tree planting and farm management options which can provide an improved and/or more resilient income stream for small scale producers of rubber, timber, and agroforestry plantations.

The programme will involve working over various provinces with various partners including the government and private sector. To overcome the existing barriers to the widespread adoption of tree planting, the programme will use a market based approach to create and attract investments for creating or increasing the off-take channels for tree products produced by smallholders, seek financial investments and payments by results through financial institutions, and strengthen smallholder producer participation in the value chain. The programme would work with a variety of smallholder organisations and on private land and community forestry and community protected areas.

We currently are looking for Community Agroforestry Advisor. This position is subjected to funding and open to only national candidate.
