GIZ recruits 01 Development Worker as Advisor for Land Use Planning


The Forest-Environment Programme (PFE) is a bilateral project implemented by GIZ, supporting the sustainable management of forest resources in Cameroon. Within the framework of the African Forest Landscape Restoration (AFR100) initiative, the Forest-Environment Program proposes to contribute to the design and implementation of adapted restoration approaches through local landscape land use planning (at least 20 000 ha) in its areas of intervention, AFR100 joint projects of the ‘Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau’ (German Development Bank / KfW) and council forests. The expected results aim to ensure integrated land use planning for land areas with a high forest component for selected landscapes; the coordination of the land use planning occurs at the intersectoral/national, regional, local and council levels; the assessment of the conditions for landscape restoration and the creation of local feedback mechanisms on land use is envisaged, including the participation of women and indigenous peoples.
