Junior Data Management Specialist


TechnoServe is recruiting a Junior Data Management Specialist, to be based in Chimoio, Mozambique.
  • Assignment Background: Initial value chain and market systems assessments have identified input supply as one of the critical constraints for agriculture value chains in Mozambique. Extensive market distortion (from government and donor subsidies) and low effective demand among poor smallholder farmers have long presented challenges to the development of a private sector input market in Mozambique. Input suppliers have generated much of their business from government/donor contracts. There is increasing awareness among all stakeholders that the subsidized approach must change, and events such as the collapse of the state owned seed company SEMOC and the proliferation of small private sector seed firms has demonstrated that this shift is occurring
