We are looking for a Junior Expert in Monitoring & Evaluation and Learning, sector Livestock for VSF:
The Karamoja sub-region of Uganda has been involved in conflict over the past three decades. In 2006 the government of Uganda launched a massive disarmement and development exercise which has seen considerable improvement in the peaceful situation of the area. However, chronic food insecurity is still pertinent to the region, brought about by erratic rainfall, decreasing soil fertility among other constraints. The communities in Karamoja depend on subsistence crop farming supplemented by pastoralist livestock rearing.
The objective of the VSF program is to "Strengthen the capacities of the disadvantaged communities of the South who depend on livestock for their livelihoods in order to improve their welfare". This will be achieved through improvement of food and income security of agro-pastoralist communities in Karamoja through optimization of livestock production and livelihoods diversification
