As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.
For our operations in Yaoundé/Cameroon, we are looking for an Head of the ‘Cameroon’ component in the Sustainability and Increased Added Value in the Cotton Industry global programme.
The Sustainability and Increased Added Value in the Cotton Industry global programme is part of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) special initiative ‘One World – No Hunger’. It focuses in particular on increasing the production of sustainable cotton and strengthening downstream processing stages. The approach is intended to raise incomes in the cotton industry and create new employment prospects. The partner countries of the global programme are Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Uzbekistan and India. Cameroon is the fifth largest cotton producer in sub-Saharan Africa. However, less than 2% of the cotton fibres produced are processed in the state-owned textile industry to make yarn and fabric. The primary target group of the programme is small farmers who cultivate cotton in the Extrême Nord, Nord and Adamaoua regions. Cotton producers face a wide range of challenges, amongst other things due to the monopoly held by the parastatal cotton company Société de Développement du Coton (SODECOTON).
If we caught your interest, we are looking forward to your application until 11/17/2019.
