We are looking for: A FIELD COORDINATOR – GHOR – AFGHANISTAN
In Afghanistan, based in Ghor
As a politically fragmented, natural disaster-prone nation, Afghanistan has long faced levels of chronic insecurity, internal displacement, and widespread poverty that has subjected its populations to ongoing hardships and recurring humanitarian crises. Communities remain food insecure for a range of reasons, from the cumulative impacts of multiple droughts, erratic climate shocks and seasonal flooding, a lack of infrastructure and limited access to markets, problems that are especially acute among vulnerable populations in remote regions. As a result, Afghanistan ranks poorly on basic human development indicators, with millions dependent on external humanitarian assistance for their daily survival and an estimated four million refugees living abroad in Pakistan and Iran. Although education and health have improved in urban areas, rural populations remain largely vulnerable to maternal and perinatal mortality and infant mortality and diseases, malnutrition being a major concern.
