IFDC is recruiting for the anticipated USAID Strengthening Agriculture and Regional Resilience (STARR) Project based out of Nairobi.

2. Improved regional agricultural inputs;
3. Strengthening resilience;
4. Strengthening the regional policy environment.
The policy specialist will engage with private sector agri-input providers and other stakeholders, such as COMESA, EAC and IGAD, to ensure that regional input policy initiatives are demand driven and align with the needs of the private sector.
Particular focus will be placed on harmonization of inputs standards (seeds and fertilizers, etc.) as well as harmonized trade and customs regimes
Support improved evidence-based analysis and increased public-private sector dialogue to promote an improved agriculture enabling policy environment with regard trade and usage of agricultural inputs
Undertake studies and develop action plans to capacity build and guide regional governments on how to promote trade and utilization of agri-inputs and advise what policy instruments and institutions should be employed.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
