sharing in governance of extractive industries
Deadline to Apply: 2 December 2019
The political and socio-economic conditions of the four member states of the Mano River Union (MRU: Côte d´Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone) are shaped largely by mineral and natural resources. In this context, it is promising that all four states have begun reforming their minerals sectors in recent years. Although reforms have already been implemented, some of the key elements required to ensure that the extractives sector contributes to sustainable development are still lacking. The objective of the Regional Resource Governance Program is that the extractive sector in the MRU countries is geared to a greater degree towards the principles of social, ecological and economic sustainability. It supports partners in their efforts to reduce their dependence on external assistance in the long term and to mitigate risks arising from the mining sector. To this end, it applies a multi-stakeholder approach to cooperate with governments, civil society and the private sector at the regional, national and local level.
There are two identical positions open, one in Monrovia, Liberia, one in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
