Feed the Future Value Chain

Feed the Future Value Chain is recruiting a Dispute-Resolution Advisor (m/f), to be based in Maputo, Mozambique.
Description
  • The purpose of the assignment is to provide a brief inventory of the prevailing disputes that persist between farmers and off-takers in various intervention areas in which FTF Inova is engaged and analyze how they are handled. This will include assessing the prevailing resolution practices and how they are perceived by the farmers in terms of fairness, transparency and cost-effectiveness. The consultant will also provide advice on methods and tools to use that are compatible with the Mozambican law and that can reduce the amount and depth of conflicts between farmers and buyers/traders.
