Internship Opportunities with DLCI

Location: Nairobi

The Dryland Learning and Capacity Building Initiative (DLCI) for improved policy and practice in the drylands of the Horn of Africa was previously known as the Regional Learning and Advocacy Programme for Vulnerable Dryland Communities (REGLAP) and has been carrying out learning and evidence based advocacy activities since 2008. DLCI/REGLAP is recognised for its drylands expertise and its high quality synthesis documentation and awareness raising on critical issues for dryland resilience. While originally present in Ethiopia, Uganda and Kenya, DLCI is currently focusing its activities in Kenya with sharing of lessons learnt to other countries in the IGAD region.

Following an extensive review and planning processes, DLCI was launched as an independent organization in January 2014, to focus more on building community and government capacity for advocacy.  DLCI is currently focusing on promoting:

  1. Higher quality and more appropriate education provision in the ASALs;
  2. More appropriate and technically sound irrigation practices in the ASALs learning the lessons from the past;
  3. Coherent and shared visions for ASAL counties and promoted integrated and land use planning;

DLCI offering 6 months internships with a modest stipend to work on the following issues:

  1. Communications, program and admin support;
  2. Policy analysis;
  3. Irrigation and hydrology analysis;

DLCI is looking for interns with an interest in pastoral livelihoods, policy, applied research, administration, gender and diversity and looking to develop a career in development.  The intern must be willing to undertake regular field trips and spend an extended period of time in the field. The intern must be confident, have a good command of English both written and oral, and knowledge of local language from ASAL areas would be desirable. Graduates of agricultural irrigation, political sciences, communications, or business administration are particularly encouraged to apply.

If you meet the skills and requirements for this position, please, tell us why in a covering letter and send it with your full CV to Hilda Omega at homega.dlci@gmail.com by 1st November 2014.
