Information on vacancy
Period of publication 23.01.2023 - 21.02.2023
Field of activity /
Agriculture, irrigation / Manager
Duties Do you want to be part of new and dynamic team intended to become the future driving force to assist the Uzbek government in guiding the transformation of the agri-food sector of Uzbekistan? Are you motivated by the idea of making a positive impact on the lives of millions of Uzbek farmers, agri-businesses and food consumers? If yes, then this job opportunity might be for you!
The International Strategic Centre for Agri-Food Development (ISCAD) a newly established organization under the Ministry of Agriculture of Uzbekistan in partnership with the European Union, managing a large portfolio of loan funds provided through various International Financial Institutions such as the WB, ADB, IFAD and JICA - is currently seeking to recruit a high-caliber candidate for the position of the Project Manager. Based in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, he/she will be responsible for support of effective implementation of national strategies in agriculture formulating and producing thorough agrifood sector strategies and sub-strategies, based on evidence-based policy analysis and good quality of data.
Jobs with the ISCAD are not intended to be traditional government jobs. Careers at the ISCAD are reserved for innovators with a "can-do", "will-do" attitude, and fresh, modern forward-thinking and outward looking perspectives. The right candidate will be able and willing to work in a dynamic, fast-moving environment, capable of engaging with a wide-range of multi-disciplinary experts and diverse stakeholders, providing leadership and motivation, promoting the design and implementation of actions and interventions that are intended to contribute to real and lasting changes in the agri-food sector at all levels, from farm to fork.

Diversification, modernization and import substitution of agriculture production is currently a priority policy of the Government as stipulated in the Presidential Decree No.2460 on agriculture sector reforms and development for 2016-2020 as well as in the Welfare Improvement Strategy for 2013-2015 (WIS II). Diversification of products, particularly horticulture crops, livestock and related sub-sectors, is expected to enhance rural family incomes and reduce the number of low-income households. This can happen when smallholder producers are effectively integrated into value chains on a sustainable basis, and have developed capacity to produce for the market, especially high value crops. IFAD's experience with the value chain approach in the region and elsewhere suggests that for smallholder producers to participate in value chains for their benefit, roles of the private sector actors are crucial. Traders/buyers, aggregators, processors, exporters and other private players shape to a large extent how the value chains perform. From the viewpoint of smallholder producers (dekhans and small private farmers), conducive partnerships with them present a major opportunity for sustained income augmentation. The Project considers private sector operators willing to invest time and resources to increase value chain competitiveness in a way that also improves the benefits of smallholder producers as 'champions', and will support their efforts to strengthen their businesses. This in turn will result in making the value chains more inclusive to smallholder producers.
