Position: Project Officer (Swisscontact Cambodia)__Deadline:08-June

We are a leading organisation for the implementation of international development projects. We promote inclusive economic, social and ecological development to make an effective contribution towards sustainable and widespread prosperity in developing and emerging economies.

Swisscontact - the Swiss Foundation for Technical Cooperation is an independent, non-profit foundation based in Z├╝rich, founded in 1959 by leading figures from the Swiss private sector and Swiss universities. It is exclusively involved in international development, active in more than 38 countries with 120 programmes with more than 1,000 staff members. Swisscontact has been present throughout South-East Asia for more than 30 years. Swisscontact has been operating in Cambodia since 2013, establishing its office in the country in April 2016.

The Innovation for Sustainable Agriculture (ISA) is financed by the Happel Foundation, the Marcuard Family Office, among other donors, and is part of the Swisscontact Development Programme, which is co-financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA. In line with the aspirations of the Royal Government of Cambodia, ISA will work to make the Cambodian agriculture sector move towards sustainable intensification. The project will support existing public and private institutions to provide appropriate sustainable technologies and techniques to smallholder farmers.
