Project Coordinator – Gender Equality and Inclusion (Re-advertisement) at Plan International February, 2024

Plan International was founded over 75 years ago with a mission to promote and protect the rights of children. The organisation was set up by British journalist John Langdon-Davies and refugee worker Eric Muggeridge in 1937, with the original aim to provide food, accommodation and education to children whose lives had been disrupted by the Spanish Civil War.

THE PROJECT

Plan International’s Conservation and Sustainable Management of Coastal and Marine Ecosystems (COSME) project aims to significantly scale up Plan International Kenya’s current women-led, climate-resilient livelihoods and coastal management project in Kwale and Kilifi counties. It takes an ecosystems-based approach in partnership with Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) Canada, COSME will also capitalize on opportunities for South-South learning by working between Kenya/Tanzania cross-border communities within the same marine coastal and coastal forest eco-regions. The project will be instrumental in driving Nature Based Solutions (NbS) for climate adaptation and biodiversity conservation in the selected eco-regions: i) mangrove restoration and conservation; ii) sustainable seaweed farming; and iii) locally-led forest management and conservation. Small-scale conservation agriculture practices will also be deployed to build the resilience of women in selected communities.  The ultimate project outcome is improved climate-resilient, equitable economies within communities relying on coastal and marine ecosystems.

THE ROLE

The role of the Project Coordinator – Gender Equality and Inclusion is to drive the project Gender Equality and Inclusion Strategy, and to ensure successful initiation, planning, implementation as well as monitoring and reporting of the specific project interventions and budget that are foundational to Gender Transformative Climate Adaptation and Resilience. The incumbent will be responsible of direct management of two implementation Project Officers and ensure effective establishment of key relationships with key stakeholders in the county and the project locations within the county. With support from the Project Manager, she/he will liaise with other project teams for synergy and integration of project interventions.  She/he will be the technical resource within the project for Gender Transformative Climate Adaptation and Resilience in the broader scope of the COSME project.
