As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.
For our operations in Midrand/South Africa, we are looking for an
Advisor (m/f/d) PIDA Compacts with Africa
Only 38% of the African population has access to electricity, less than 10% is connected to the internet and only 25% of Africa's road network is paved. To address these challenges, in 2012 the African Heads of State and Government adopted the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) as the continent's strategic infrastructure framework contributing to Agenda 2063. PIDA has over 400 regional projects aimed to improve energy supply, regional transport corridors, internet connectivity as well as trans-boundary water management. On the continental level, the African Union Commission (AUC) is responsible for the political steering of PIDA whilst the African Union Development Agency-NEPAD (AUDA-NEPAD) facilitates the technical implementation. Within the scope of the German G20 Presidency initiative "Compacts with Africa (CwA)" the GIZ-PIDA programme will pilot a "PIDA-CwA" component. This component is jointly implemented with AUDA-NEPAD and should contribute to the regional economic integration of one CwA country and its region. The implementation of this pilot tests the application of the PIDA Project Delivery Model in the context of the CwA to mobilize private investment and create local employment for one infrastructure project with regional impact in the CwA country Ghana. GIZ is now searching for a PIDA Compacts with Africa Advisor (Ghana) to support AUDA-NEPAD with the coordination and technical advisory of the PIDA Project Delivery Model under the PIDA Compacts with Africa component focussing on Ghana. The Advisor will be located at the partner organisation AUDA-NEPAD in Midrand, South Africa.
If we caught your interest, we are looking forward to your application until 02/19/2020.
