The GEF Project Development Specialist will lead two GEF project development processes to a successful conclusion: one in Solomon Islands and one in Vanuatu. The consultant’s main task will be to design and generate quality CEO documents and full sized project (FSP) documents for both Solomon Islands and Vanuatu that meet the expectations of Government, FAO, the GEF Secretariat, and key co-funders. The GEF CEO Endorsement Request and the FAO Project Document are the final products of the project preparatory phase.
In 2010 the State of Food Insecurity in the World (SOFI) report estimated that there were over 160 million undernourished people in protracted crisis situations. The proportion of undernourished people in protracted crisis situations is about three times as high as in other developing contexts – and the longer the crisis, the worse the food security outcomes. The longer we delay concrete action, the larger the problem, as has been demonstrated in Africa.
This self-paced e-learning course provides an overview of the impact of climate change on food security. It also introduces climate-smart agriculture and practices that contribute to climate change adaptation, mitigation, food security and development.
The course is provided free of charge and is available online or on CD-Rom. Training materials such as powerpoint slides and exercises are included in the course and can be adapted to your face to face training needs.
