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 that have been
previously advertised but for one reason or another have had to be
readvertised for the current round. The placements are for periods between
3-12months and I am looking to identify a suitable candidate for each
position by 5 February. The successful candidates would need to be available
to move to the Philippines in July. Very happy to have interested people
contact me directly for more info.

 


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. The assignment involves
developing a campaign strategy, focusing on consultations with key target
audiences; a work plan, budget and a funding strategy, including an outline
for donors, and accompanying Bioversity staff on visits to potential
campaign partners and sponsors and participate in relevant workshops in the
Philippines. 

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,
