SNV is preparing for an exciting new project focusing on changing the business models in cotton, dairy and horticulture production systems. The project, which is to start in January 2020 is a three year project. Working with companies, SMEs and farmers, the new project brings together lessons from previous achievements in climate smart agriculture and renewable energy and works on proving the premise that an integrated private sector approach to climate change can be commercially viable and environmentally sustainable
Integrated Soil Fertility Management + Agroforestry + Bio-slurry + Renewable Energy + Irrigation = More climate friendly, stable & higher yields
The project maintains a strong orientation on the differing roles of men and women farmers in farming and in business and also on youth (self) employment.
Overview of the Position
The project team consists of a Project Manager based in Lusaka, three Field Coordinators each based in a field office, CSA and RE officers, M&E and gender specialists.
