Vacancy Announcement- National Engagement Strategy (NES) Facilitator
The National Engagement Strategies (NES) is an approach to strengthening coordination of actions of ILC members on land governance. It consists of strengthening and supporting a multi-stakeholder platform that defines country priorities for promoting people-centred land governance. The platform defines country strategy and multi-year action plans to address the priorities set out in the country strategy, in a coordinated and synergic manner, and involving other relevant land actors in Kenya.
