Members may be aware of AusAID's Australian Youth Ambassadors for
Development (AYAD) program, which places skilled young Australians (18-30)
on short-term assignments in developing countries in the Asia Pacific
region. 

 

The Crawford Fund acts as Australian Partner Organisation for placements in
some communication/journalism positions and I'm wondering if any members
would be interesting in either of the following positions which I've
mentioned previously.

 

The successful candidates would need to be available to move to the
Philippines in October.  Very happy to have interested people contact me
directly for more info.

 

Both organisations are housed at the university town of Los Banos - very
well resources and picturesque!

 


One position is with Bioversity International (BI) the world's largest
international research organisation dedicated solely to the conservation and
use of agricultural biodiversity. It is non-profit and independently
operated. The position is related to the UN 2010 International Year of
Biodiversity and aims to raise awareness of the value of agricultural
biodiversity for nutrition, health and livelihoods. Would be very exciting
to be part of this key campaign for the UN IYB.

 

The second position is with WorldFish Centre - an international, non-profit,
non-governmental organisation with a mission to reduce poverty and hunger by
improving fisheries and aquaculture. This successful applicant is needed to
develop articles about projects for newsletters; develop training manuals
and materials that could be used to promote marine protected area management
effectiveness; and prepare project briefs and policy recommendations from
results of ongoing and completed projects that could be widely disseminated
to partner institutions and policy makers. 

 

Cheers,
