The sustainable livelihood consultant will be assist in the implementation of component 1 of the project document which is Piloting of community-based, climate adaptive agro-forestry and assisted natural regeneration (ANR) techniques. He/she will be responding to outcome 1 on assisted natural regeneration. The assignment involves supporting the local communities to be self-reliant by enhancing their freedom and capacity to accelerate and participate in the development of their areas. There are challenges being faced by local communities in finding decent economic opportunities and it is desirable to understand these challenges through this assignment. Communities are likely to increase their reliance on forests for livelihood activities to off-set climate-induced losses resulting from prolonged droughts, localized flooding, a shortened growing season and poverty in general. In addition, for communities to move away from unsustainable production methods, sustainable livelihood options have to be provided. This will result in coming up with livelihood activities that will be proposed and implemented based on the land use resource maps of the 8 pilot sites.
