The Dry Corridor Food Security Project (ACS-PROSASUR) in Honduras aims to improve the resilience, livelihoods and food security of 6,000 poor and extremely poor families in twelve Dry Corridor municipalities, one of the most impoverished and climatically fragile regions in the country. The project was designed on the basis of sustainable, nutrition-led agriculture, intelligent water management, participatory research, pro-poor market-based approaches, gender programming and youth inclusion; and the relevant social and environmental safeguards policies of the World Bank to improve donor support and government accountability.
The COP is responsible for managing the project within the designated cluster. Their main role is to ensure that results are achieved in the established schedule, resources are used effectively and efficiently, the staff performs effectively, efficiently and ethically, the Contractors are fulfilling their commitments, and the results are of the best quality. The COP is the official representative of the Contractor for INVEST-H, the Government of Honduras and the International Donor Community in Honduras.
The Chief of Party will report to a Project Director based in Washington, DC.
