Securing Water For Food

Ur annonsen:

Securing Water for Food (SWFF) aims to enhance access to innovations that help agricultural producers grow more food with less water, enhance water storage, and improve the use of saline water and soils to grow or process food . SWFF is seeking Field Evaluators to conduct in-country, field research with a SWFF innovator using SWFF established guidelines and research questions.

M&E Field Evaluators should be graduate students with a background in water, agriculture, technology innovation, sustainability studies, quantitative studies, or business (particularly those in an MBA program). Field Evaluators will be expected to be (at a minimum) in the field 6-8 weeks during the Spring, Summer, or Fall season of 2019. Exact dates are dependent on farming cycles and innovator availability.

This opportunity will allow you to:

  • Conduct in-country, field research in one of SWFF’s 40 innovative water-ag organizations located in 35 countries around the world.
  • Interview 50+ on-site farmers who use SWFF innovations.
  • Serve as a “fact-checker” and validate and expand upon information that SWFF has received from innovators.
  • Be part of one of the leading new mechanisms in international development for discovering breakthrough solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.
  • Complete fieldwork requirement that could serve as a basis for thesis, capstone or dissertation work.
