Position: Technical Specialist (Value Chains and Provincial Coordination) - SB-4 (4 positions) (FAO)__Deadline:23-February

Organizational Unit: FACMB - FAO Representation in Cambodia
Job Type: Non-staff opportunities
Type of Requisition: NPP (National Project Personnel)
Grade Level: N/A
Primary Location: Various Locations
Duration: 12 months with the possibility of extension

Organizational Setting
The main aim of the FAO Representation in Cambodia is to assist the government in developing policies, programmes, and projects to achieve food security and to reduce hunger and malnutrition, to help develop the agricultural, fisheries, and forestry sectors use their environmental and natural resources sustainably.
FAO is an Accredited Entity (AE) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF). In partnership with Cambodia's National Designated Authority (NDA), the Ministry of Environment (MoE), and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) are implementing a project ”Public-Social-Private Partnerships for Ecologically-Sound Agriculture and Resilient Livelihoods in Northern Tonle Sap Basin (PEARL)". This six-year climate change adaptation project aims to enhance the climate resilience of farmers and local communities in the Northern Tonle Sap Basin (Kampong Thom, Siem Reap, Preah Vihear, and Oddar Meanchey) through public-social-private partnerships and improved access to growing segments of the agricultural product market while ensuring wide dissemination of climate-resilient practices and technologies.
The project has three Outcomes:
i. Improved hydrological and agrometeorological services,
ii. Climate-adapted agriculture value chain development,
iii. Strengthened agriculture regulation, policy, market, finance, and institutional capacities.
The project will work to improve four agriculture value chains: rice, mango, cashew nut, and vegetables.
The project will enable this market-led transformation through the establishment of a Farmer-led Agricultural Resilience Mechanism to assist smallholder farmers and other small-scale local value chain actors in acquiring technologies and infrastructure assets that are essential for adopting climate-resilient and high-value agricultural production and processing. Activities under Outcome 2 of the PEARL project will bridge the current capacity and resource gaps faced by smallholder farmers and other small-scale local value chain actors in the target areas to adopt alternative practices for climate-resilient and high-value agricultural production and processing. The project will use the certification schemes already operational in the country, including CamGap, GI, SRP, organic certification and HACCP, as the primary vehicles of transformation to develop market incentives around cashew, mango, organic rice, and vegetables. PEARL will also support the dissemination of climate advisory to last-mile users for improved planning and decision-making through Outcome 1 while Outcome 3 will strengthen the enabling environment for climate-resilient and sustainable value chains.

Under the overall supervision of the FAO Representative of Cambodia and the direct supervision of the PEARL Senior Project Officer, working closely with the International Technical Adviser (Value Chains Development), the Technical Specialist (Value Chains and Provincial Coordination) will be the provincial coordinator of on-the-ground activities in PEARL target provinces i.e., Siem Reap, Oddar Meanchey, Preah Vihear, or Kampong Thom, working on specific crops, i.e. cashews, mango, rice and vegetables.
