USAID’s Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET) is a leading global provider of objective, evidence-based food security information and analysis to inform decisions on humanitarian response and other assistance programs. FEWS NET collaborates with international, regional and national partners to provide timely and rigorous early warning and analysis of potential, emerging, and/or evolving food security issues in order to inform decisions and guide response.
Chemonics International Inc., a leading international consulting firm based in Washington, DC, has been contracted by USAID to manage FEWS NET’s technical and field activities. Chemonics seeks applications from qualified and experienced Afghanistan professionals to fill one full-time Nutrition Officer position in Kabul, Afghanistan. Chemonics seeks to engage the Nutrition Officer for an initial contract to last up through January 01, 2020, with the possibility of an extension. The Nutrition Officer will work closely with the FEWS NET country, regional, and U.S. teams to support the following activities in Afghanistan:
Efficient, focused food security monitoring, data collection, assessment, and early warning analysis;
Effective communication of early warning analysis to partners and decision-makers through contributions to high quality reports and participation in briefings and formal and informal meetings;
Close collaboration with key network partners, including those with a more diffuse field presence, such as host-government counterparts, United Nations agencies (e.g., WFP, FAO, and UNICEF), and regional and local non-governmental organizations, among others;
Network development through capacity strengthening with respect to FEWS NET’s tools and analysis.
