Building upon work by CTA and its partners (ILRI, IIRR), the CLI-MARK project will work with private- and public-sector actors to scale up market mechanisms that can increase the adaptive capacity of pastoralists in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia. More specifically, it will:
- Facilitate design and delivery of 'blended weather information system' that incorporates the best of scientific and indigenous weather knowledge systems;
- Develop and implement mechanisms for scaling up livestock insurance among pastoralists;
- Boost markets, trade and enterprises for women and youth to increase incomes and sustainable practices.
CTA is seeking to identify the services of a Project Manager (PM) who will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the project and will work in close consultation with implementing partners in East Africa.
