The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) is an independent research institution, which generates science- based knowledge about the complex role trees play in agricultural landscapes and rural livelihoods. Main purpose of the positions are to establish the definitive database on the impact of field-level agricultural practices on food production, adaptive capacity, and climate change mitigation (i.e., climate-smart agriculture). The Consultant team containing approximately six members will work together to find, compile and analyze research on climate-smart agriculture. This will require literature search, evaluation, and data extraction and will yield both a terrain map of the available information and a database of evidence. Submit a cover letter that describes your experience and career goals, CV or resume and contact details for three referees to Todd Rosenstock, email@example.com. For more information, click here.
