Date of announcement: 05 February 2020
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020
The The Zimbabwe Land and Agrarian Network (ZiLAN) invites applications to fill in the post of Coordinator that has arisen within its Secretariat.
ZiLAN was established in 2012. The Membership of the Network comprises organisations involved in research and policy analysis; NGOs working with farmers; farmers’ representative organisations; women and youth in agriculture, interest groups, and land reform and agriculture activists. The members have had informal ties since 2006. In coming together, the members sought to strengthen their respective capacities, complement each other and amplify their collective voices to influence land and agrarian policies and programmes in Zimbabwe.
The members of the Network are driven by a shared concern about equity, and social justice in access to land, its utilization and the sharing of benefits arising from productive activities. The network is of value for a variety of reasons which include: the utilitarian (access to information, services, skills, critical mass for advocacy), ideological (solidarity with smallholder farmers and farm workers, unified voice for civil society organisations) and pragmatic (visibility of issues; sharing experiences; common lobby platform; among others).
